Trump supporters will not be happy to hear that the DOJ has effectively ended their investigation into Hillary Clinton without any charges or major results.
In October of last year, Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch accused the DOJ of protecting Clinton.
DailyMail reports an inquiry into Republican allegations of misconduct at the Justice Department and the FBI, including its handling of the Hillary Clinton investigation, has effectively ended without tangible results.
Former U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions had appointed Utah’s top federal prosecutor, John Huber, in November 2017 to look into a variety of Republican allegations of misconduct.
Among the issues being investigated was claims the FBI did not fully pursue possible corruption cases at the Clinton Foundation during Hillary’s tenure as U.S. Secretary of State when the federal government allowed the sale of a company called Uranium One, the Washington Post reports.
The assignment has since ended but no official notice has been sent to the Justice Department or to lawmakers.
Current and former law enforcement officials said they had not expected the probe to uncover anything.
A Justice Department spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
In 2017, Republican lawmakers opened a congressional investigation into the 2010 sale of Uranium One, a Canadian company that owned 20 percent of U.S. uranium supplies, to a Russian government firm.
President Donald Trump had called for an investigation into the Uranium One sale, which required approval by the U.S. Committee on Foreign Investment in the United States (CFIUS), though five congressional inquiries had already found no evidence of wrongdoing.
Trump, Republican lawmakers and right-wing media have charged that Clinton masterminded the sale’s approval in exchange for donations to her family’s Clinton Foundation charity.
