Sessions pressed on lack of minorities on staff US attorney nominees

[John] Danforth took over that investigation as special counsel - and Mr. Mueller. "Each of those are pretty special, factual situations", Sessions said, "and we will use the proper standards".

It also comes a day after the Justice Department told the chair of the committee, Rep. And, President Donald Trump has repeatedly shown disappointment that the department isn't looking into "Crooked Hillary".

Rep. John Conyers (D-Mich.), the ranking Democrat on the committee, asked Sessions a series of questions early in the hearing about the DOJ's role and if it was proper for it to be influenced by Trump, citing a number of tweets where the president called on the Justice Department to take action against Clinton.

However, many American politicians have criticised the President for being too involved with law enforcement and the justice department.

Goodlatte wants a special counsel to look into several matters, including Clinton's use of a private email servers while secretary of state, the purchase of a Canadian uranium mining company by Russia's nuclear agency, leaks by former FBI Director James Comey about a conversation with President Trump, and financial dealings by the Clinton Foundation. The FBI probed that issue in 2015 and 2016, but Justice Department officials decided there wasn't enough evidence to pursue a full-fledged investigation.

In his testimony, Sessions did say that he believed his recusal would not bar him from appointing a special counsel to investigate possible wrongdoing involving Uranium One, a Canadian mining company with USA assets that was purchased by Russia's nuclear energy agency.

The Washington Post reported Monday US time that Mr Sessions has directed senior prosecutors to investigate alleged wrongdoing by the Clinton Foundation and the controversial sale of a uranium company to Russian Federation when Mrs Clinton was secretary of state in the Obama administration.

Sessions noted that there have only ever been two special counsels: one for the Waco siege in April 1993, and Robert Mueller's probe into possible collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

Former federal prosecutor Andrew McCarthy said he doubted there was any prosecutor appointment or assignment that would lead to Mueller stepping down.

Sessions added: "I would say the Department of Justice can never be used to retaliate politically against opponents, and that would be wrong".
