“There is a massive left-wing infrastructure in place trying to protect the monstrous government created by the Obama administration.” Those are the words of Tom Fitton from Judicial Watch.
What Fitton is referring to is the recent uncovering of a large slush fund at the Department of Justice that was used to fund insurrectionist Leftist protestors and social agitating groups. It is a development that is shocking in breadth, in the level of criminality as well as for its purpose.
Fox News has learned of “a process shrouded in secrecy whereby monies were distributed to a labyrinth of nonprofit organizations involved with grass-roots activism.”
It appears that the largest source of this money derives from big banks targeted by Obama’s (In)Justice Department, you know the one headed by Eric Holder and then Loretta Lynch, for lawsuits. The banks were ‘encouraged’ to settle the suits out of court and that reward was then piped through to “third-party groups” that include Leftist activist organizations like “National Council of La Raza, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition and the National Urban League.”
Fox reports that so far, $3 billion in such payments have been tracked to these groups.
Fitton told Fox, “It’s a shakedown. It’s corrupt, pure and simple.” Another watchdog group official called the illegal practice a “clear abuse of power.”
That it most definitely is.
