Friends In High Places: Hillary Clinton Has Received Nearly $75,000 In DOJ Political Contributions
11 May, 2016
It's nice to have friends in high places, especially if one is being investigated for mishandling classified government material. If anyone believes that charges will be filed against Hillary Clinton as a result of the FBI investigation, don't forget the fact that just like the Federal Reserve, the Department of Justice is also a politically motivated organization.
Clinton has received nearly $75,000 in political contributions from individuals who listed the Department of Justice as their employer the Free Beacon reports. As a reminder, the DOJ will be the one to ultimately decide whether or not to bring charges against Clinton, which would be difficult considering it wants Hillary to become the next president of the United States.
"I'm not surprised in the least to see more evidence that shows the politicization of the Justice Department.How can Democrat political appointees fairly investigate someone who is about to become their nominee for president? That's why last July I called on Attorney General Lynch to appoint an impartial special counsel to investigate the private Clinton email server" said David Bossie, president of watchdog Citizens United.
People who have been on the inside of the political madness know what to expect. Former inspector general for the State Department Howard Krongard predicted that even if the FBI recommended charges, it would"never get to an indictment" due to the fact that the case would have to get through "four loyal Democratic women", including Attorney General Loretta Lynch, top White House adviser Valerie Jarrett, Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates, and Assistant Attorney General Leslie Caldwell.
The donations have also moved former U.S. attorney Matthew Whitaker of watchdog group Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, to call for a special counsel to investigate Clinton as well.
"The report out today that Hillary Clinton received $75,000 in political contributions from Justice Department employees is yet another reason why the Justice Department cannot and should not decide whether to bring a case against Hillary Clinton for her reckless handling of classified information while Secretary of State.
The decision of whether or not to bring a case against Clinton will be a difficult one for Attorney General Loretta Lynch, as I don’t believe she has the fortitude to oppose President Obama, who has publicly said Clinton’s behavior didn’t put our national security at risk. Since this Administration has shown no ability to be impartial, looking the other way at every turn of this investigation, I’m renewing an urgent call for the appointment of a special counsel in this case."
Of course, none of this should be a surprise to anyone. Cronyism isn't just used to make money, lest we forget. Speaking of not forgetting, President Obama himself guaranteed that there would be no political influence in any investigation conducted by the DOJ... why the worry?
I can guarantee that. I guarantee that there is no political influence in any investigation conducted by the Justice Department. Full stop, period.
