The fix is in. Obama’s Department of Justice (DOJ) is going through all the appropriate motions to signal that they are conducting a proper and thorough investigation into Hillary Clinton’s email scandal. However, this same DOJ is infused with diehard Clinton supporters who have forked-over nearly $75,000 in donations.
This is the same DOJ that is tasked with deciding whether or not to prosecute the former Secretary of State. As prosecuting Clinton will effectively end her rocky presidential bid, those who have gone out-of-pocket to support her presidential campaign will be tasked with deciding whether to pursue justice or to allow their chosen candidate to continue on.
The Washington Free Beacon reports on the campaign disclosures:
Clinton collected $73,437 from individuals who listed the “Department of Justice” as their employer. Twelve of the 228 contributions were for $2,700, the maximum individual amount allowed by law.
The fundraising haul marks a dramatic increase over Clinton’s unsuccessful presidential run in 2008, when she took in 23 contributions totaling $15,930 from employees at the agency, according to data compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics.
Trump, by comparison, has received little help from Justice Department employees, recording justtwo contributions for a total of $381.
Sanders has taken 51 donations totaling $8,900 from Justice Department employees.
In any other venue, this would be called a “conflict of interest.” However, as President Obama has maintained the most-corrupt DOJ in the history of these United States, it’s hardly surprising to see that those who are supposed to remain objective are financially invested in her success in evading prosecution.
David Bossie, president of campaign watchdog group Citizens United, criticized the evident conflict of interest, saying,
“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.”
“Today, I renew my call that Attorney General Lynch must appoint a special counsel to determine if Hillary Clinton or her agents broke the law and compromised our national security,” he continued. “This investigation needs to be conducted free of political influence once and for all.”
Attorney General Lynch has already made her leanings clear as she has donated $10,700 in contributions to Democrats between 2004 and 2008.
Howard Krongard, the former inspector general of the State Department, has already noted that the case against Clinton is not likely to result in an indictment despite the overwhelming evidence of her guilt. Krongard claims that a decision to indict would have to pass through “four loyal Democratic women.”
It has been confirmed that Clinton maintained the private, unsecured server and transmitted over 2,000 classified and top-secret documents over the server. Though she claims that she did not always realize that the material was classified, such ignorance is immaterial as motive plays no role in assessing the criminality of the violation.
In summary: the FBI knows that Clinton maintained an unsecured email account in violation of her contract with the State Department. They know that she routinely transmitted classified and top-secret documents over this unsecured email account. They possess her signed State Department contract that outlines explicitly that the aforementioned activities are strictly prohibited regardless of intent.
Still, the FBI is lingering-on and investigating.
Even if the FBI does decide to act objectively, an indictment would likely be quashed by the Obama Administration as President Obama shielded disgraced former Attorney General Eric Holder from prosecution to escape the consequences of his criminal activity during the Fast and Furious investigation.
