NBC News reported last month that Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating allegations of collusion between Russia and Donald Trump's presidential campaign, has expanded his inquiry to include alleged links between Russian interests and at least one Democrat, Tony Podesta, the brother of Hillary Clinton's campaign chairman.
CORRECTION (Nov. 14, 2017, 2:48 a.m.): An earlier version of this article misidentified Tony Podesta. He is the brother of John Podesta, who ran Hillary Clinton’s 2016 presidential campaign; Tony Podesta was not Clinton’s campaign chairman.
Sessions said DOJ would investigate any potential issues related to Clinton. News broke Monday night that Sessions has asked senior federal prosecutors to "evaluate certain issues" presented by House Republicans, including alleged ties between the Clinton Foundation and the sale of Uranium One. The move, detailed in a letter to Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte, comes after Trump has criticized his Justice Department for not doing more investigation of his former political rival. "You can be sure that they will be done without political influence and they will be done correctly and properly," Sessions said at the hearing Tuesday.

Sessions: We're going to bring in independent prosecutors to review a host of issues out there
