It Exists: DOJ Finds Letter Ordering Scrutiny of Uranium One, Hillary Clinton

After it claimed no such document existed, the Justice Department just unearthed a letter Matt Whitaker delivered to the Utah U.S. attorney directing a review of how the department handled the Clinton Foundation and the Uranium One issues.

Then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote the letter on Nov. 22, 2017 for Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber. Matt Whitaker, who was Sessions’ chief of staff at the time, emailed the letter to Huber that day, writing, “As we discussed.” He also sent Huber a copy of a letter the Justice Department’s Congressional affairs chief sent to the chairman of the House Judiciary Committee on Nov. 13 of that year.
The existence of a letter documenting Sessions’ directive that the DOJ revisit probes of Trump’s top political foe is a surprise because a department lawyer said in court last year that senior officials insisted it didn’t exist. The liberal nonprofit American Oversight obtained the letter through a Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) request they filed on Nov. 22, 2017––the same day Whitaker emailed Sessions’ letter to Huber.
The request asked for documentation of the directions Sessions gave Huber about the review of the Clinton investigations. After DOJ failed to produce any written directions, American Oversight sued.
And on Nov. 16, 2018, Senior Counsel in the Office of Information Policy Vanessa Brinkmann, who handles FOIA Requests, said a lawyer in Sessions’ office told her no such letter existed. That lawyer spoke with Huber and Whitaker, she said in a declaration filed in federal court, and then told her that “when the Attorney General directed Mr. Huber to evaluate these matters, no written guidance or directives were issued to Mr. Huber in connection with this directive, either by the Attorney General, or by other senior leadership office staff.”
That wasn’t correct. On Wednesday of this week, a DOJ lawyer told American Oversight that they had found the document that kicked off Huber’s work.

Huber offered his resignation in March 2017 at the request of the Trump administration.[3] However, United States Attorney General Jeff Sessions subsequently appointed Huber as interim U.S. Attorney under the Federal Vacancies Reform Act.[4] Huber was renominated by President Donald Trump in June 2017.[5] On August 3, 2017, he was unanimously confirmed by the United States Senate to an additional four-year term as a U.S. Attorney.[6] https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/John_W._Huber


Sessions had been directing Huber from the moment of rehire by verbal communication. There were no written directives until months later when he received the Nov letter. As far as the lawyer knew there was no letter. Coincidentally (ahem) the request asking for the letter is the exact same day it was delivered.

All ongoing investigations are "hidden" unless leaked. Grassley and Goodlatte sent in the referrals on Hillary even though they are already blaming Trump. Everything they are investigating is pre Trump.
Releasing the letter publicly means there is a good chance they are done with the investigation.

That would make sense.

There are rumors of a documents release this month. But, past rumors have proven false.

Wait and see..

Bump.
I for one,
and this margarita for two,
Feel that monday would be a great day for all this to come tumbling down, splashing forth, opening wide, headlines made, whistlers whistling,
And let some justice bells get to pealing.

Ahem..  (cough)  Bullshit

The letter stating Sessions directives was sent to Huber by email. Unless the lawyer reads Huber's email, there is a good chance when asked about written directives, the lawyer didn't know of any since the request was presented the same day Huber received the email. If the lawyer knew, they probably would have gladly handed them a useless redacted copy.
What a difference a day makes. Chuckle

FOIA Discovery Reveals AG Jeff Sessions Initiation Letter To U.S. Attorney John Huber…
Posted on March 9, 2019 by sundance

We discovered last year that Jeff Sessions had authorized U.S. Attorney John Huber to work with the Inspector General’s office, but we did not know exact dates and scope of the original Huber investigation. Thanks to a FOIA request, some details now fill in.

A left-leaning watchdog group, American Oversight, filed a FOIA request in 2017 looking for any communication that might show former AG Jeff Sessions giving instructions to DOJ officials to target Hillary Clinton for investigations.

Ironically, and perhaps serendipitously, the American Oversight FOIA request was submitted on November 22nd, 2017, the exact date Sessions’ chief-of-staff Matt Whitaker was sending a letter to Utah U.S. Attorney John Huber. Had they waited a day, what AO were looking for would have surfaced. However, with the Sessions-Huber communication falling outside the FOIA request window, the DOJ response was delayed until yesterday.
