Hillary Clinton could face Trump-inspired probe

As such, Pirro has offered Trump advice on matters foreign and domestic, with a recent report indicating that she advised the president to appoint a special counsel to investigate the alleged misdeeds of Hillary Clinton, including the former secretary of state's involvement with the Uranium One deal.

Sessions, testifying before the House Judiciary Committee, was grilled by Democratic lawmakers about the letter, implying that the possible investigations into Uranium One and then-Secretary of State Hillary Clinton's use of a private email server were being politically influenced by President Donald Trump.

The Uranium One deal was approved by a committee that included representatives of nine government agencies, one of which was the Clinton-led State Department. "Each of those are pretty special, factual situations", Sessions said, "and we will use the proper standards".

The Washington Post reported Monday US time that Mr Sessions has directed senior prosecutors to investigate alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial sale of a uranium company to Russian Federation when Mrs Clinton was secretary of state in the Obama administration. But there is no evidence that Clinton herself was involved in the U.S. government's approval of the deal.

In several angry tweets November 3, the president called again for investigations of Clinton and Democrats, saying, "at some point the Justice Department, and the FBI, must do what is right and proper". The president has repeatedly and publicly attacked the department, the Federal Bureau of Investigation and senior officials at those agencies, complaining that he wishes he could have more control over how they pursue criminal cases. Trump wrote in a series of tweets.
