GOP wants to eliminate shadowy DOJ slush fund bankrolling leftist groups

Image result for doj slush fundThe 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.”

There is a recent effort by Republicans to eliminate the practice, which many believe was widely abused during the Obama administration.

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.”

If what you state is true and we now have a Obama Holdover running the DOJ investigation into the Russian affair... look for this problem to accelerate and calls for Impeachment to start resonating on capitol hill.

like I have said... Trump is being set up and he better learn from NIXON that he can not trust his own party.  Period.  Sessions should have never recused himself... especially, if the second in command is an Obama Holdover... what is going on?

Sessions should NEVER have fallen for this TRAP.

There is NO criminal investigation going on, at least that is what Judge Napolitano said. Only the same thing they always do—which is to gather information.

They are chip chip chipping away and keeping the distraction level high and what they are really doing is offering incentives for the R's to TURN on Trump. And THEY fell for it. Stupid dupes.

He needs to quit listening to them and get busy draining each and every last 0bama appointee out of there including Comey.

All the repukes should be doing is counter-attacking each and every D. call for special investigations, recusing, with list of LAWS broken in all 0 did, Holder did, Lynch did, HBeast did.

These turncoard Repukes have proven beyond a doubt, Portman, Issa and the others, that they will be #nevertrumpers to the end. They proved it by turning on Sessions.

I am completely disappointed in the so-called conservative caucus, which is making the rounds on Dobbs and a few others, at them not rounding up a replacement for Ryan, and more than disappointed that they are not backing up Trump loudly and clearly.

When asked about "R and Replacement" they hem and haw about the timeline just like the turncoat Ryan and more scuttling around about "making it right." They had 8 years to make it right. Where have they been?

Where is their REPEAL bill for Trump to sign? The SAME one they sent to 0? Where is it?

Who made the BAIT AND SWITCH to REPEAL and REPLACE? And WHEN? WHY is THAT PERSON not even identifiable?

AND, there is far too much DUNG in the D/commie camp for the D/commie's to be flinging flyshit at us, when their pile of treasonous actions is as high as the tower of babel.

WHERE IS OUR URANIUM?

WHERE IS THE MONEY THAT DISAPPEARED under HBeast's watch and WHERE IS SESSIONS on THAT?

And WHY IS COMEY STILL THERE?

I just heard Lindsay Graham say that the senate is purposely not going to confirm Trump/Sessions' Deputy Attorney General until the Trump/Russia 'investigation'/witch hunt is completed. That means they are intentionally keeping an Obie/Holder holdover in charge of an investigation that is b.s., fabricated for an agenda to discredit Trump and has no sound basis in fact.

it's the revenge of the never-trumpers, nothing more -- other than demonstrating how much Rs will cooperate with Ds to keep the establishment status quo.  what a bunch of hooey!! What a bunch of lowlifes.

9th Amendment...

Trump can fire the Deputy AG ... now!  He can appoint a TEMPORARY Deputy AG until his nominee is confirmed.  He doesn't have to keep the Obama Holdover...

If he keeps the holdover... the fix is in. Trump is not who he claims to be.  Or, Trump is being lied to and doesn't understand that he can fire the Deputy or move him too another position and appoint his own Deputy... using his powers to appoint temporary office holders subject to Senate Confirmation.

Sally... Good intentions don't translate into Congressional action... and Trump needs more than rhetoric... to govern.  The EO's he has signed are being challenged and resisted ... it will take an active and AGRESSIVE AG too defend his EO's and other policies, unless Trump can get Congress to support them.. So far, that isn't working.

We don't have a lot of time... and Trumps transition team should have had a plan too go around Congress, to fully staff his Administration with TEMPS... which is lawful... on the first day of his Administration.  He should have FIRED every Obama hold over immediately upon taking office. That didn't happen.. and that is  hurting the implementation of his policies.  He still has hold overs on board... as far as I know.

I signed on to the TRUMP EXPRESS not a train wreck...  AG Sessions has to be one of the most important men in Trumps cabinet if he actually intends on draining the Swamp... However, Sessions is proving to be very disappointing and when one adds in FBI Director Comey... one has to ask how Trump intends on draining the Swamp.. as he certainly appears to have two major road blocks... now... both Sessions and Comey.

Ever read Prince Machiavelli's book on government... if you have you'd see what is happening is classical Machiavellian politics... say one thing and do another.. Create a problem leading to a course of action that forces your opposition to support your ultimate goal.. the Hegelian Dialect... it is apparently at work here.

Example... Repeal ACA has become "REPEAL and REPLACE"... Not what I signed on for.  What is offered. as the replacement, is ACA version 2.0, known affectionately by its supporters, as the  ACA Light version. However, the GOP will tell the people they kept their promise to repeal the ACA... Only they didn't. They modified the existing ACA, too keep if from collapsing... thus buying a few more years, before version 3.0, is necessary to replace version 2.0.

We are being maneuvered... and I for one don't like being lead around by the nose... wake up America... not all that is green is green?

Not sure that we all agree on the meaning of " draining the swamp".

just the other day I was talking about 'betting' that Sierra Club was a recipient in this b.s. -- would like to see a more complete list to find out if they are.

but the 3 listed are each more deeply rooted in the nefarious bureaucracy than most people realize too. Cutting off major funding would be a very good thing, especially this government shake-down funding.

Doesn't it look a whole lot like what Jesse Jackson and Al Sharpton do?

It is not a government shake down... it is EXTORTION a crime.

yeah it is..

funny, extortion is the word I couldn't quite come up with fast enough to keep typing  ;' /. 

It is amazing when you see all the corruption and where has all this money went!!!  I can say I do hate these people.  There only concern is for them and power and when they get up there deceiving everyone by making like they are soooo concerned about everyone.  Well finally they are showing themselves for who they really are.  I can not wait until they start getting prosecuted that will make my day.

This gets me mad when a lot of Americans have been feeling hardship they did not have to go thru.

Graft, corruption, crime, all commonplace to the Obama Gang.  While they're at it, they might start checking Off-Shore Accounts, I'd look for Obama's, they would keep them busy quite a while, maybe, starting with the Cartel for the guns of "Fast & Furious".

Please President Trump drain that swamp as swiftly as possible! No more of our hard earned money going to lefty losers!

Pelosi Disaster!  95% Of Americans Tuned Out Impeachment Show Trials On Friday — Only The Second Day Of Testimony

Despite the constant hype Americans are already tuning out the sham impeachment trials.

On the second day of the public show trials 95% of Americans turned off the nonsense.

Americans are worn out by all of the fake news and hysteria.

Devastating.

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Day 2 of Democrats' Impeachment Hearings 

Yawn: 95% of U.S. Adults Skipped Friday’s Impeachment Hearings

Americans aren’t exactly obsessed with the Democrats’ impeachment hearings, it seems. Friday’s second day of live, wall-to-wall coverage drew an average of 12.7 million viewers on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN,

Flashback: Horrible News For Shifty Schiff – Majority Of Americans Don’t Want Impeachment, 76% Don’t Trust Dems And Believe Media Is Pushing The Sham

No One in American Wants Impeachment except the Far-left Socialist Democrats and their Corrupt Media. They hate President Trump because he is a winner. He beat them and he’s making America great again as he said he would.

The Democrats and their corrupt media are totally blinded by their rage and they don’t realize that no one is in favor of impeachment.

We reported a week ago that FOX News released a poll where they stated that 49% of Americans were for Trump Impeachment. But their polling was flawed. The real extrapolated results of the poll using an accurate proportion of Republicans, Democrats and Independents showed that only 30% of Americans are in favor of Trump’s Impeachment and they’re all Democrats.

Next, a few days ago we reported on another poll that was consistent with the results of our extrapolated FOX News poll.

Nearly three quarters of all Americans have little or no trust in the way that Schifty Schiff is running the impeachment process –

You won’t hear this in the mainstream media: Nearly three fourths of Americans have little to no trust in the House Democrats’ handling of their impeachment process. 🤔

Today another poll was released with similar results.

Most Americans believe that the corrupt media is trying to help get President Trump impeached. Three-quarter of Republicans, half of independents and even a third of Democrats believe this to be the case. No one trusts Schifty Shiff or the corrupt media pushing his impeachment sham.

1- "Seventy-six percent (76%) of Republicans and a plurality (48%) of voters not affiliated with either major political party say most reporters are trying to help impeach Trump, a view shared by only 36% of Democrats."

Let's recast that last phrase 

Rasmussen Reports @Rasmussen_Poll
 

Most Say Media Working With Democrats to Impeach Trump... 

This is perhaps the worst gaffe in modern political history.

This Schiff Show does not have a happy ending for the Democrats. Even with the support of the entire corrupt fake news media, it’s a total sham and everyone knows it!
