Nervous? John Podesta In ‘Panic Mode’ After Sessions Weighs Special Counsel For Clinton-Uranium-One Deal by Joshua Caplan – The Gateway Pundit

Hillary Clinton’s 2016 campaign chair is in ‘panic mode,’ after reports Attorney General Jeff Sessions is weighing a special counsel to investigate the Uranium-One deal.
