Did Jeff Sessions Just Hint at an Open Investigation into Clinton-Russia?

"It wouldn't be appropriate for me to comment on any ongoing investigation," Sessions told the Senate Judiciary Committee.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions hinted that the Department of Justice was investigating reports that the Russian government bribed former President Bill Clinton and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton in order to push through the Uranium One deal at a Senate oversight hearing on Wednesday.

At first, Sessions declined to “confirm or deny” the existence of an active investigation in response to questions from Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-IA).

“Some people have gone to jail in that transaction already,” Sessions pointed out, referring to the Russian conductor of the plot, Vadim Mikerin.

The attorney general mentioned that the original investigation, conducted by the current Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, would be “reviewed.”

Grassley then specifically asked Sessions about possible investigations, but the attorney general offered a different response than his previous refusal to “confirm or deny.”

“It wouldn’t be appropriate for me to comment on any ongoing investigation,” he said, hinting that an investigation could be proceeding into the uranium deal.
