Why I should be named special counsel
Larry Klayman says Trump needs 'unafraid' attorney to probe Clintons, Obama

You know me as the only lawyer ever to have a court of law rule that former President Bill Clinton committed a crime. This ruling was by a courageous U.S. District Court judge, Royce Lamberth, over Clinton's violation of the privacy rights of a woman he assaulted and sexually abused in the Oval Office.

But today we face a much greater threat and crimes by the Clintons and the administration of former President Barack Hussein Obama. Obama, along with the Clintons, have committed the real Russian collusion scandal, one that involves racketeering and bribery cash flowing into their coffers from "communists" to acquire illegally over 20 percent of America's strategic uranium reserves, seriously endangering our national security. Uranium is the fuel for atomic reactors and nuclear bombs! Uranium is also used to power medical devices for radiation therapy for cancer patients.

Here is what Andrew McCarthy in the National Review recently wrote about this scandal, perhaps the biggest in American history, short of Tea Pot Dome, Watergate and of course the Clintons' Chinagate scandal, which I helped uncover in the years after I founded and ran Judicial Watch.

"Let's put the Uranium One scandal in perspective: The cool half-million bucks the Putin regime funneled to Bill Clinton was five times the amount it spent on those Facebook ads – the ones the media-Democrat complex ludicrously suggests swung the 2016 presidential election to Donald Trump. ... Here's the kicker: The Uranium One scandal is not only, or even principally, a Clinton scandal. It is an Obama-administration scandal. The Clintons were just doing what the Clintons do: cashing in on their 'public service.' The Obama administration, with Secretary Clinton at the forefront but hardly alone, was knowingly compromising American national-security interests. The administration green-lighted the transfer. ..."

And, then there are the recent revelations about a Russian front group called Fusion GPS, which was paid handsomely by Hillary Clinton and the Democratic National Committee (DNC) to manufacture dirt – that is, "fake news" – on then-presidential candidate Donald Trump to kill his election chances. This highly illegal smear campaign is yet another example of Russian collusion, not by Donald Trump, his family and his campaign, but by Clinton and the Democrats themselves. Here is what even the leftist pro-Clinton and Obama Washington Post revealed about this dastardly and illegal plot, carried out by a British discredited former spy, Christopher Steele:

"The Hillary Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee helped fund research that resulted in a now-famous dossier containing allegations about President Trump's connections to Russia and possible coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin, people familiar with the matter said. ... The dossier has become a lightning rod amid the intensifying investigations into the Trump campaign's possible connections to Russia."

Again, uranium is used to build atom bombs, and the Russians, after bribing the Clintons and Obama, likely peddled this uranium to the Iranians and North Koreans, as well as used the uranium to build more atomic weapons for themselves.

Both the Clintons and Obama and their accomplices need to be finally investigated and prosecuted for these apparent crimes! Their indictments and convictions are long overdue after decades of criminal racketeering activity that is treasonous.

The problem is that our current attorney general, as I demonstrated in last week's column, is too cowardly to do his job and prosecute either the Clintons or Obama. And, Congress will not get to the bottom of these scandals, either. If the past is a prologue, the Republicans will simply use these Clinton-Obama scandals to go on Fox News, beat their chests and try to win re-election. In the last eight years under Obama, they did not bring either the former president or those criminals around him to justice – corrupt public officials like former Attorneys General Eric Holder and Loretta Lynch, and former FBI Directors Robert Mueller and James Comey.

The embedded video below from Fox News' "Hannity" underscores why a special counsel now needs to be appointed, as AG Sessions is too scared he will be prosecuted by Mueller for alleged Russian collusion and lying to Congress about his meetings with the Russian ambassador during the months leading up to last fall's presidential elections. Sessions is worried that if he goes after the Clintons, Obama and their equally criminal "friends," he will be indicted by the pro-Clinton and Obama prosecutors on Special Counsel Mueller's conflicted staff.

As even the slightly left and prestigious National Journal observed many years ago, "The main reason Larry Klayman is exasperating to many people across the ideological spectrum is that he ignores the rules of partisan combat that define Washington. Many political operatives have come to realize that Klayman is impossible to sway, because he seeks no Establishment credentials, and has none to protect." [The National Journal, Louis Jacabson, (June 29, 2002), Number 26]

Years ago, my friend Alan Keyes, when he was running for president, said I would be his attorney general if he were elected. Now, it's time for me to be a real attorney general and have President Trump direct his Justice Department, of which I am an alumnus, to appoint me as special counsel. I would then have all the powers of the attorney general in these criminal matters.

John Adams our great Founding Father and second president, declared that we were created to be a nation of laws and not men.

With this regrettably unfulfilled mission in mind, please go to and sign the petition directed to President Trump and the Justice Department to urge that I be appointed special counsel. I am unafraid and uncompromised, unlike our current attorney general! I will get the job done!
