Though ignored by the Corporate Media, US Attorney-General Jeff Sessions shut down a corrupt policy instituted by Obama flunkies Holder and Lynch. Obama and his henchmen in the Justice Department instituted a policy whereby third-party 'activist groups' who sued entities in Federal Court could receive a 'contribution' as part of an out-of-court settlement in a lieu of a federal fine against the Defendant.
What this policy actually amounted to was legalized extortion. Corporations, municipalities, state governments, churches, etc. were forced to shell out millions of dollars to Left-Wing front-groups---oftentimes simply to avoid negative publicity or a lengthy court-case.
Sessions put a stop to this yesterday. He stated: "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 whomever is in power. With this Directive, we are ending this practice and ensuring that settlement funds are only used to compensate victims, redress harm, and to punish and deter unlawful conduct."
Sessions' actions follow recommendations from a Congressional Inquiry begun earlier this year into allegations that tax funds and other government monies were being funneled into Left-Wing fronts through the Justice and State Departments. Sessions investigated immediately and acted. In contrast, 'Rainbow Rex' Tillerson not only refused to investigate, he praised George Soros and the good works Soros was doing.
Congressman Bob Goodlatte, one of the team investigating the DOJ thanked Sessions for his prompt and decisive action. Goodlatte said that the investigation will continue into possible illegalities and conflicts-of-interest involving Obama, Holder, and Lynch. He issued a statement noting that preliminary investigations have found that nearly $1 billion in settlement funds were channeled to Liberal activist groups while Conservative nonprofits received little or nothing.
"The practice is wrong no matter which party is in power." Goodlatte said. "Attorney-General Sessions' integrity stands in stark contrast to the behavior of Obama Administration officials."
