Newly released emails between members of Obama’s DOJ reveal how they skirting the “just” and “equal” part of legal practice to actively screw the opposition. At least when it came to allocating funds to conservative groups:
The chairman of the House Judiciary Committee claims he obtained a “smoking gun” email that proves the Obama Justice Department prevented settlement payouts from going to conservative-leaning organizations, even as liberal groups were awarded money and DOJ officials denied “picking and choosing” recipients.
While Eric Holder was U.S. attorney general, the Justice Department allowed prosecutors to strike agreements compelling big companies to give money to outside groups not connected to their cases to meet settlement burdens.
This is simply a matter of playing favorites. Liberal groups were awarded money, conservative groups were not. In an ideal world, the DOJ is non-partisan. Under Obama and Eric Holder, the DOJ was but a cudgel. Used to beat and smite the opposition.
In one such email in July 2014, a senior Justice Department official expressed “concerns” about what groups would receive settlement money from Citigroup — saying they didn’t want money going to a group that does “conservative property-rights legal services.”
Sounds like actively interfering based solely on ideology. Imagine the media outrage had this been reversed. Replace Obama’s DOJ with Trump’s DOJ. Or Bush. My God, the media carnage. Like Michael Moore at the opening of a new Krispy Kreme. Steer clear the ravaging flab beast.
“Concerns include: a) not allowing Citi to pick a statewide intermediary like the Pacific Legal Foundation (does conservative property-rights legal services),” the official, whose name is redacted in the email, wrote under the title of “Acting Senior Counselor for Access to Justice.”
To the left, fairness and equality only apply to certain groups, thus being neither fair nor equal (see Uh Oh! New Report Shows DOJ Blocked FBI from Investigating Clinton Foundation and Obama’s DOJ Demands We Stop Calling Convicts ‘Criminals’… Because Feelings?!).
What we have here is yet another example of Obama’s Department of Justice, under Eric Holder, acting maliciously toward groups it opposed ideologically. Conservatives. While liberal leaning groups were given back pats and massages even Weinstein envied.
This isn’t the first time Obama’s administration has come under fire. Remember Fast and Furious? IRS targeting Tea Party and other conservative groups? The Democrat party hates conservatives, and moderate Republicans. The left sees us as their sworn enemies. They stop at nothing, not even allowing laws to get in their way, to destroy us.
Is there really any doubt?
