Barack Obama’s Department of Justice funneled billions of dollars to leftist organizations

March 2, 2017

  It is now being reported that Barack Obama’s Department of Injustice was using what basically amounts to strong-arm tactics and extortion to create a slush fund in order to fund leftist organizations to the tune of roughly $3 billion. Yes, that is billion with a “B.”  

  Here is more on the scheme and how it worked:

The Obama administration funneled billions of dollars to activist organizations through a Department of Justice slush fund scheme, according to congressional investigators.

“It’s clear partisan politics played a role in the illicit actions that were made,” Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, told Fox News. “The DOJ is the last place this should have occurred.”

Findings spearheaded by the House Judiciary Committee point to a process shrouded in secrecy whereby monies were distributed to a labyrinth of nonprofit organizations involved with grass-roots activism.

“Advocates for big government and progressive power are using the Justice Department to extort money from corporations,” Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton told Fox News. “It’s a shakedown. It’s corrupt, pure and simple.”

When big banks are sued by the government for discrimination or mortgage abuse, they can settle the cases by donating to third-party non-victims. The settlements do not specify how these third-party groups could use the windfall.

So far, investigators have accounted for $3 billion paid to “non-victim entities.”

Critics say banks are incentivized to donate the funds to non-profits rather than giving it to consumers.

“The underlying problem with the slush funds is we don’t know exactly where the money is going,” Ted Frank, director of The Competitive Enterprise Institute Center for Class Action Fairness, told Fox News. “Using enforcement authority to go after corporate defendants, DOJ bureaucrats are taking billions away from taxpayers to fund their pet projects overriding congressional preferences.”

  Did you catch that? These corporations can settle out of court by donating money to leftist groups which were not victims in the lawsuit in the first place thereby ensuring that those who might have been hurt are left holding the bag. 

  Here are a few of the organizations which reaped billions of dollars off of this scheme: the National Council of La Raza, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition and the National Urban League.

  There is some debate as to whether or not this is Constitutional because the “DOJ bypassed Congress to use a portion of the settlements to finance the administration’s housing policy.” I tend to disagree with this assertion but there is no doubt this is shady to say the least. Republicans are attempting to end this policy with the Stop Settlement Slush Fund Act of 2017. Here is more on that:

“Congress must permanently end the abuses Obama’s Justice Department exploited to use settlements to funnel money to their liberal friends,” Goodlatte said in a statement.

  This should have been the big news of the day but the mainstream media and the Democratic leaders were too concerned about a meeting Jeff Sessions had with a Russian diplomat while executing his duties on the Senate Foreign Intelligence Committee and not as a surrogate to the Trump campaign. Fake news ruled the day again.

    If there was a slush fund that would seem pretty stupid because of the paper trail. On the other hand this was BO’s DOJ! I don’t think these were settlements but rather plea bargins. The DOJ would present their case against a bank for example. If the bank agreed to the charges the DOJ and the bank would settle an amount and the bank would pay a third party.

    There is a real problem with attorneys coming from and going back to the private sector. There seems to be too many conflict of interest points. It maybe better to have government attorney’s that did not practice in the private sector. Pay them a minimum salary and then add a bonus for successfully prosecuting cases. Just like Trump placed a ban on lobbying there should be a similar ban on attorneys leaving government to practice in the private sector.

      Yeah, there wasn’t an actual slush fund but it does look like there was extortion being used to “convince” them to donate to liberal causes in return for not prosecuting them.

        Well what do you expect from a bunch of attorneys! From my experience they can lie and cheat and not be held accountable, but us on the other would face huge fines and jail.
