We’ve had about eight years to recognize and understand the deep corruption and cronyism that runs through the Obama administration, unchecked, because of either cowardice or a common affinity between parties for holding onto a power structure that puts politicians above the very people who give them their jobs, in the first place.
Purpose and dignity have been so eroded in the upper halls of American government under the Obama administration, that no longer can anyone truthfully consider the Department of Justice, without finding the title to be a complete misnomer.
There is no “justice” involved with the DOJ, disgraced by Eric Holder, then kicked into an overdrive of corruption and incompetence by Loretta Lynch.
Much of this has been revealed through hacked emails, obtained and released by WikiLeaks over the last couple of months.
Earlier today, newly released emails show that the Department of Justice may have collaborated with the Clinton campaign, in order to keep her ahead of the ongoing investigation into her mishandling of classified emails, during her tenure as Secretary of State.
Brian Fallon, Clinton’s campaign spokesman and a Justice Department alum, wrote in May 2015 that “DOJ folks” had tipped him off to an upcoming status hearing in a high-profile lawsuit that threatened to expose Clinton’s 30,000 work-related emails to the public.
An earlier email from an unidentified source shows someone alerted Fallon to filings in the Clinton email case.
In one email, dated May 19, 2015, Fallon wrote:
“DOJ folks inform me there is a status hearing in this case this morning, so we could have a window into the judge’s thinking about this proposed production schedule as quickly as today.”
In coordinating with Clinton aide, and Clinton Foundation board member, Cheryl Mills, Fallon relayed:
“DOJ just filed a briefing saying the gov’t proposes releasing HRC’s cache of work-related emails in January 2016.”
Since that time, the public has witnessed obstruction of the investigation on every level. From an FBI director who refused to charge Clinton, based on “intent,” even as he acknowledged Clinton’s team had taken unusual measures to destroy evidence, to IT technicians granted immunity behind the backs of the investigating committee, the DOJ has had some hand in actively shielding Hillary Clinton from what would have been a swift conviction for anyone not in her privileged position.
