Some on the right were disappointed that Attorney General Jeff Sessions wrote Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte, and House Oversight Committee Chairman Trey Gowdy there would be no special counsel for now in the Hillary Clinton matters (email and Uranium One, one assumes) and the FISA/dossier/surveillance affair.
Not so fast. Hiding in plain sight in Sessions’ letter was information considerably more important than a special counsel, pro or con. As he mentioned a week ago on Shannon Bream’s show but now has made public officially, the attorney general has assigned a senior U.S. attorney to the investigation — John Huber.
Importantly, working in concert with the inspector general, Mr. Huber can actually indict people. This is a criminal investigation. And it’s happening now!
