US Attorney General Jeff Sessions vowed Tuesday to decide quickly whether to appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Hillary Clinton's alleged mishandling of classified materials when she was secretary of state.

Asked in a House Judiciary Committee hearing whether he would review requests for a prosecutor "fairly and expeditiously," Sessions confirmed he would.

"You can be sure that they will be done without political influence and they will be done correctly and properly," Sessions said.

On Monday the Justice Department informed the committee it was weighing proposals to name an special independent counsel to investigate the FBI's handling of a probe last year into the Democrat Clinton's use of a personal server for official and in some cases classified emails, in breach of government rules.

The department also confirmed that it was considering a special counsel to investigate the foundation of former president Bill Clinton, and its ties to companies involved in a deal that sold US uranium rights to a Russian state company.
