Emails Show Obama’s DOJ Channeled ‘Slush Fund’ Money To Leftist Orgs [VIDEO]

We are into the second week of major revelations regarding Hillary Clinton and the Obama Administration. Not a single one of these revelations are pretty, and every single one involves skirting the law and essentially throwing the United States under the bus. We’ve written multiple times about the craptastic Uranium One deal and are covering the Clinton/DNC Trump Dossier collusion racket as well.

The Obama Administration, along with Hillary has much to answer for regarding both of those. But that’s not all. There’s a THIRD scandal that hit this morning as well. 

On Tuesday, House Financial Services Committee Chairman Rep. Bob Goodlatte revealed that documents obtained in a separate, ongoing investigation show that former President Barack Obama’s administration directed money intended for victims of Wall Street mortgage meddling to progressive activist organizations who now form much of the “resistance” to President Donald Trump.

Members of the House Judiciary Committee mentioned, several weeks ago, that they suspected Obama’s Department of Justice had iced out conservative organizations looking for their share of the more than $1 billion legal settlement the DOJ collected from “big banks” who’d played a part in the housing crisis of the late 2000s. The DOJ required banks included in the settlement agreement to make “mandatory donations” to non-profits working on housing and property rights policies.

Wait what? Let’s look at this again.

  • The ‘big banks’ settled with the DOJ for over $6.76 billion, and in fact the DOJ raked in $15.3 billion in 2016 from those and other cases.
  • That settlement money was supposed to go to the VICTIMS only
  • Obama and the DOJ, which was run by Eric Holder and then Loretta Lynch during that time frame, instead worked to direct the money to 3rd party acceptable liberal organizations.

WOWWWWW.

Yes folks, they seriously engaged in bankrolling liberal organizations and their leftist causes!

Interestingly, information regarding this was discussed in May of 2016.

However, given the events of that time and through the rest of the summer (that 2016 Presidential election thingie), it’s somewhat understandable that this slipped under the radar. Not anymore. Emails have been obtained that specifically highlight the cartwheels those at the DOJ turned in efforts to make sure the liberal leftist organizations of their choice raked in the dough. You can read all of the emails here, below is a sample:

In one email, a senior official even appears to admit that they worded a memo with a mind to “not allowing Citi to pick a statewide intermediary like the Pacific Legal Foundation” because PLF “does conservative property-rights free legal services.”

This effort completely contradicts Deputy Attorney General Geoffrey Graber’s February 2015 testimony to the House Judiciary Committee. He was under oath when he bluntly stated the following:

“the Department did not want to be in the business of picking and choosing which organization may or may not receive any funding under the agreement.”

Guess what? He lied, and they did pick and choose!

Who benefitted? Organizations such as:

The National Council of La Raza

The National Community Reinvestment Coalition

The National Urban League

Any conservative organization that advocates for Constitutional property rights policies got nothing. Zip. Nada. Zilch. Keep in mind that the organizations that benefitted weren’t adversely impacted by the banks predatory lending practices. Furthermore, the reimbursements to the ACTUAL plaintiffs was dollar-for-dollar. But the organizations listed above and others? Their payday was TWOFOLD in comparison to what the victims received. That’s some serious Pay for Play folks!

Very very true.

Attorney General Sessions issued the following memo in response to this highly unethical activity.

“When the federal government settles a case against a corporate wrongdoer, any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people — not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power,” Sessions said.

Exactly! $15.3 BILLION folks! I want my money back!

This is just one more piece of evidence highlighting what many of us have known for years. During the Obama Administration the Department of Justice became the Department of INJUSTICE, and this Republic was left holding an empty bag.

    I surely hope that the current DOJ and AG will do everything they can to bring charges against all involved, up to, and including the previous occupant!

  • George V says:

    Didn’t we hear about this a couple of years back? I seem to recall reading about it somewhere, somewhere behind the “Page 1” stories, that the Obama DOJ was having the various companies paying penalties by directing money to “suitable groups” as a way to “invest in the communities the companies serve” or some such blarney. Anyone else recollect such reports?

    • Nina says:

      Yes, It was discussed in 2015 and then dropped. It was one of those that slipped under the radar. And no one at that time had emails that verified that DOJ was actually pushing to make it happen. they do now.

    • SDN says:

      This is just a more sleazy version of the “sue to settle” tactics the EPA and various “civil rights divisions” of the government have been using since the Clinton Administration.

      Obama took it to the next level, of course, by immunity grants and charging minions it wanted to protect from real prosecution with lesser crimes they could “plead guilty” in such a way as to avoid the full penalty while attaching double jeopardy.

      “The Justice Department instructs prosecutors that when Congress has given a federal offense its own conspiracy provision with a heightened punishment (as it has for money laundering, racketeering, narcotics trafficking, and other serious crimes), they may not charge a section 371 conspiracy. Section 371 is for less serious conspiracy cases. Using it for money laundering — which caps the sentence way below Congress’s intent for that behavior — subverts federal law and signals to the court that the prosecutor does not regard the offense as major.

    When I last read about this – a month or so ago – I recall the Left slush fund for these same three groups (one is actually an umbrella of groups) was in the $600+ million range.

    Has this payout for Obamunist corruption grown?
