Obama's shakedown

The issue finally came to the firefront of the Obama administration bringing charges against large corporations and then settling for fines instead of seeking criminal convictions of executives -- as President Bush 43 did to a score of CEOs.

The Obama administration then parceled the money out to liberal groups.

This is called a shakedown. Congress and President Trump may stop this gravy train to liberal groups.

From Rush Limbaugh:
Democrat administrations fine anything they can get a handle on and give the money to their own left-wing activist groups. Headline of the story: “Obama Administration Funneled Billions into Left-Wing Activist Groups.” Fox News had this yesterday. They reported on it yesterday. It’s a House Judiciary Committee investigation. I didn’t see it on Fox News. I only know about it ’cause of my show prep and other things. I’m not criticizing anybody here. I’m just saying nobody’s gonna hear about this. (laughs) I guarantee you this story will not ever show up in the New York Times.
Unless… The way it would show up in the New York Times is if the New York Times finds a corporation that didn’t give the money to a nonprofit and writes a scathing hit piece on the corporation for being inhumane and lacking compassion. “Legislation, called Stop Settlement Slush Fund Act of 2017, has been introduced by Lankford to address the scheme. ‘Congress must permanently end the abuses Obama’s Justice Department exploited to use settlements to funnel money to their liberal friends,’ said House Judiciary Chairman Bob Goodlatte…”
About time.

I hope President Trump will take this money and use it to prosecute criminal CEOs.

  4. Congress has the ability to alter this legal practice - which has been in existence well before Obama took office. Glad to see the federal Rs are about as efficient at WV Rs when it comes to putting their money where their mouths are.
    BTW - how is Pence's investigation into major voter fraud coming along?

    1. Nope. Card-carrying Communist Frank Marshall Davis. Google photos of Obama, his mother, his "father,", and Frank Marshall Davis. Put a photo of Obama in the middle with a photo of his mother on one side and a photo of his "father" on the other. Now replace his "father's" photo with one of Frank Marshall Davis. What do you see? - Elric

  6. Darn Fake Media - this is from the very liberal MSM Fox News today:

    "Trump has provided no evidence that Trump Tower was wiretapped during the presidential election. Sources told Fox News that senior federal law enforcement officials were thrown off by the tweets.

    "Those sources said that the officials in question had no idea what Trump was talking about when the president made the allegation on social media Saturday morning. The sources also told Fox that Trump did not consult with senior officials who would have been advised of any such wiretapping operations before posting the messages."

  7. The recipients of this slush money should be forced to pay it back. That would effectively end the practice. - Elric

  8. Operation Choke Point was clearly a classic gangsta shakedown of the banks. "DOJ is essentially employing a variant of the tactics former New York Attorney General Eliot Spitzer used against mutual fund companies last decade: threatening to smear them in the business community and otherwise make their lives miserable unless they settle."
