And this one?
AG Jeff Sessions has ENDED it!
In March, it was revealed [It had been revealed much earlier than last March] 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.
“Advocates for big government and progressive power are using the Justice Department to extort money from corporations,” Tom Fitton of Judicial Watch said of the scam. “It’s a shakedown. It’s corrupt, pure and simple.”
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.”
As noted by Fox News, “The new policy allows only for restitution to victims or payment that ‘directly remedies the harm that is sought to be addressed.'”
Thank you, Attorney General Sessions, for abolishing this shameful practice!
