Time and again we discovered how Obama was cheating the American public.
He worked to undermine our democracy and use his position to help his liberal buddies. Even when it violated the law or betray Americans’ trust, he pushed for it.
Time will tell how much damage he caused to this country. But at least now we can happily say real leaders are putting it to an end.
From The Daily Wire:
In March, it was revealed that the Obama Administration was funneling billions of dollars to left-wing activist groups via a “slush fund” scheme at the Department of Justice. Essentially, the federal government would make secretive settlement agreements with large companies, directing them to bankroll nonprofit left-wing activist groups like National Council of La Raza, National Urban League, and National Community Reinvestment Coalition, instead of funneling the cash to the victims in question or the Treasury Department…
On Wednesday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions put an end to the corrupt practice once shrouded in secrecy.
“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,” said Sessions in a statement.
“Unfortunately, in recent years the Department of Justice has sometimes required or encouraged defendants to make these payments to third parties as a condition of settlement,” the attorney general added. “With this directive, we are ending this practice and ensuring that settlement funds are only used to compensate victims, redress harm, and punish and deter unlawful conduct.”
It’s shocking to realize that Obama was shaking down companies to bankroll liberal groups. He was taking advantage of corporations who were found guilty of wrongdoing, using that as an opportunity to fund progressive activism.
That’s what we call extortion.
Yet the liberal media never blew the whistle on it. Obama supporters and democrats never demanded that it’d stop. They were content to look the other way, just as they did with every other violation the Obama administration committed.
Thankfully we now have an attorney general who actually cares about upholding the law. We have leaders who will do the right thing for the American people, not liberal activists.
Let’s hope the people responsible for Obama-era abuses get what they deserve.
