Posted on 10/25/2017 3:01:10 PM PDT by ForYourChildren
Emails written by Obama administration Department of Justice officials confirm reports the agency engaged in a systemic effort to funnel money to liberal advocacy organizations from settlements reached with big banks.
The documents, obtained by the House Judiciary Committee as part of an ongoing investigation, reveal the Obama Justice Department effectively skirted Congresss budgetary authority by requiring that major financial institutions donate to a group of affordable housing nonprofits and legal advocacy organizations as part of settlement agreements resulting from predatory mortgage lending practices.
The internal DOJ documents represent the latest revelation in a two-year investigation spearheaded by House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte.
The investigation has thus far yielded evidence implicating the Obama DOJ in using mandatory donations to funnel roughly $1 billion in settlement money to activist groups, including The National Council of La Raza, the National Community Reinvestment Coalition and the National Urban League. The list of third party organizations were unrelated to the legal settlements, except through general claims that they would use the funds to aid the low income Americans most severely harmed by predatory lending practices.

$1 billion, to:
The National Council of La Raza
National Community Reinvestment Coalition
National Urban League
.. and others
Here is your copy of the email showing this funneling of $1B.
The email asks...
Can you explain to Tony the best way to allocate some money to an organization of our choosing?
Trump stopped this via Attorney General Jeff Sessions issued a memo banning the DOJ from entering into third party settlement agreements after substantial evidence emerged implicating the Obama DOJ in such practices.
0bama weaponized every facet of government.
Sure makes me feel all warm inside about that big check I write every April.
The purpose of the Democrat Party is to elect thieves to public office so that they have access to the public treasuries in order to loot them.
So tell me, why should ANYONE obey the tax laws in this country?
F U B O!
Well, that should put someone in prison! /s
In many ways you have to admit 0bama was brilliant...just not in a way that was good for the American people.
Yeah, we knew that when they were doing it, so?
Nothing will happen to anyone involved with the myriad crimes of the Kenyanesian Usurpation because there is NO ONE is the District of Corruption that is not complicit.
Except President Trump.
This is organized crime level stuff.
Its done with judges and political operatives instead of Mafioso.

This should be codified into US federal law.
This is government acting as an enforcement arm of private political groups.
I suspect that Valerie Jarrett was mostly responsible for 0bama’s apparently brilliant strategies. He signed off on it though so he must have liked it.
yep, sad state of affairs
all enemies foreign and domestic...
Well get it back
So is anyone going to be prosecuted for this? For all I know you might have trouble finding some laws that they broke. They meaning people in the Obama/Holder DOJ/
This is such creative skullduggery there might be no laws against it.
Money and assets of these organizaations should be frozen immediately, and these groups should be made to surrender it to the US Treasury, where it belongs.
These groups also should be barred from making political donations of ANY KIND; otherwise, it’s just going to be (already has been) laundered back to the people who created this corrupt arrangement in the first place.
Just like Jesse Jackson, Obama and his administration were in the shakedown business...
