Do they make orange pantsuits for federal inmates?
Former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton could soon find out.
From Whitewater to Email-gate, Clinton has pulled off a minor miracle keeping herself out of prison for this long.
But it looks like her luck is finally running out.
As first reported by Fox News, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has directed federal prosecutors to investigate a shady uranium sale to Russia and possible “unlawful dealings” with the Clinton Foundation.
At the heart of the issue is a 2010 sale of U.S. uranium interests to a Russian firm, which was approved by a committee including then-Secretary of State Clinton.
The Russian company, Rosatom, was being investigated by the FBI for a corruption and kickback scheme, and allegations surfaced that Russian-backed nuclear interests were directing large donations to the Clinton Foundation.
The so-called Uranium One deal has haunted Clinton since, and House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte was one of several members of Congress demanding a federal investigation.
Now it looks like they’re getting their wish.
Sessions has “directed senior federal prosecutors to evaluate certain issues” related to the deal, according to a letter sent by the Justice Department to Congress.
And Sessions has left the door open to appoint a special prosecutor, Fox reported.
As the probe widens, it may ensnare other top politicians in addition to Clinton.
Questions have been raised about whether former President Barack Obama knew that Rosatom was under investigation at the time the Uranium One deal was approved.
And Robert Mueller, who is now a special prosecutor investigating Russian election interference, was heading the FBI at the time.
Members of Congress have demanded to know why Mueller didn’t stop the sale to Rosatom from going through.
The Uranium One deal has looked bad from the start – and now we may be on the verge of finally learning the whole truth.
When we do, expect some high-level heads to roll.
Hillary Clinton’s may be one of them – and she could have some company.
