    WASHINGTON — The Department of Justice did not want to discuss why the agency refuses to investigate alleged harassment and death threats toward Electoral College voters in states that went for Donald The Justice Department seemed concerned about protecting voters from being intimidated at the polls on Election Day. It deployed 500 monitors to 67 jurisdictions in 28 states to watch polling stations this past presidential election cycle.

    Before Donald Trump’s stunning victory on Nov. 8, liberals called for acceptance of election results. But since the election didn’t go as they’d planned, some have taken to harassing and intimidating electors in an attempt to change the election results. Some of these threats may violate federal law, yet the Justice Department acts strangely uninterested in investigating. Following the election, a coalition of liberal activist groups launched #NotMyPresident Alliance, an organization dedicated to fighting the inauguration of President-elect Trump. As part of that effort, #NotMyPresident distributed personal contact information — including telephone numbers and addresses — of electors in states...

    Senior Department of Justice official Peter J. Kadzik, newly exposed by WikiLeaks as colluding with Hillary Clinton’s campaign chairman, is the same Obama appointee who helped cover up the Internal Revenue Service’s deliberate targeting of conservative and Tea Party groups. It is troubling that Assistant U.S. Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Kadzik is involved in, and possibly overseeing, the Justice Departments’s investigation of the 650,000 potentially sensitive emails found on a laptop computer thought to have been used at home by disgraced former Rep. Anthony Weiner (D-N.Y.) and his estranged wife, longtime senior Hillary Clinton aide Huma Abedin.

    The Obama Department of Justice has been corruptly aiding and abetting the Democratic Party’s presidential nominee, Hillary Clinton, to escape legal accountability for her actions. From Attorney General Loretta Lynch on down through the Justice Department’s political ranks, the Department has blocked the FBI from searching for the truth and following the evidence of potential criminality to its logical conclusion. Whether it is Hillary’s use of a private e-mail server while serving as Secretary of State or her involvement in the pay-for-play Clinton enterprise known as the Clinton Foundation, the Obama administration is applying a banana republic-style double standard to...

    A top Justice Department official leaked information to the Clinton campaign about the legal case concerning Hillary Clinton’s secret email server, according to a new email released Wednesday by WikiLeaks that could further taint the administration’s claims of impartiality. Assistant Attorney General Peter Kadzik sent a heads-up to Clinton campaign Chairman John Podesta in May 2015 letting him know the government was going to try to delay posting Mrs. Clinton’s secret emails until 2016. In the message, sent from his private account rather than his government-issued account, he also warned of a looming House hearing where he expected a Justice...

Lynch made it known that she thought his decision violated department policy, a source familiar with the matter told Reuters on Monday. As Comey and Lynch aides debated last Thursday whether alerting Congress about the emails would comply with longstanding Justice Department policy against announcing overt investigative steps that would influence an upcoming election, Comey asked whether he was being explicitly directed not to do so.

In addition, the FBI was actively probing former Clinton Foundation board member and current Governor of Virginia Terry McAuliffe, but...

    Texas Sen. John Cornyn is demanding answers from Attorney General Loretta Lynch about the Justice Department’s decision earlier this year to decline an FBI recommendation to investigate the Clinton Foundation. The Republican points out in the letter that the DOJ’s decision not to pursue an investigation despite the FBI’s recommendation is in stark contrast to its decision last month to accept the bureau’s recommendation not to charge Clinton following its email probe. "The outcome in both cases favors Secretary Clinton," Cornyn writes. On Thursday, CNN reported that the FBI and three Justice Department field offices recommended that Justice Department headquarters...

    Sen. John Cornyn is stepping up pressure on Attorney General Loretta Lynch to respond to reports that the Department of Justice ignored an FBI request to investigate the Clinton Foundation. Cornyn sent a letter to Lynch on Friday with a series of questions stemming from a CNN report this week that FBI officers approached the Justice Department earlier this year about opening a case regarding the relationship between the State Department and the Clinton Foundation. The Justice Department declined to investigate, according to the report, because it had already looked into similar allegations and found there was not sufficient evidence...

    Baltimore police officers routinely discriminate against blacks, repeatedly use excessive force and are not adequately held accountable for misconduct, according to a harshly critical Justice Department report being presented Wednesday. The report, the culmination of a yearlong investigation into one of the country’s largest police forces, also found that officers make large numbers of stops — mostly in poor, black neighborhoods — with dubious justification and unlawfully arrest citizens for speech deemed disrespectful. Physical force is used unnecessarily, including against the mentally disabled, and black pedestrians and drivers are disproportionately searched during stops, the report says. The Justice Department released...

    U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch said Thursday that the DOJ has the ability to “reach into specific jurisdictions” that demonstrate a pattern of unfairly targeting minorities for minor traffic infractions and can use its “power of persuasion” to discourage other jurisdictions with a similar pattern from engaging in the same practices by pointing to the DOJ’s report on the investigation of the Ferguson Police Department. […] Lynch said that oftentimes small municipalities have “a system or structure of fines for various offenses ranging from your property issues and license tags that really do fall disproportionately on minority individuals.” …

    An undercover FBI agent claimed to be the Islamic State's "eyes" when they attacked Garland last year, and even goaded one of the shooters to "tear up Texas," according to federal court records. ... "Tear up Texas," the agent wrote. "That goes without saying," Simpson replied. It's unclear how much the FBI knew about the plot against the contest, but Hendricks told the agent to attend it, according to court records. So on May 3, when blogger Pamela Geller flew in to host the event, the undercover agent was in Garland, too. "If you see that pig make your 'voice'...

    It has always been taken for granted that presidents appoint wealthy donors to commissions, ambassadorships, and other honors. But we have never before seen evidence of the way the transactions are carried out. However, thanks to Wikileaks, we have an actual spreadsheet listing donors and possible purchases of office being circulated among DNC officials. Chuck Ross of the Daily Caller has the story. The spreadsheet — which was accompanied by emails sent between officials with the DNC’s finance team — contains 23 names of little-known corporate executives and professional fundraisers who have donated to the committee and various Democratic political...

    It appears as though Hillary Clinton isn’t the only one who is above the law these days. Apparently President Obama and Loretta Lynch really know how to play the shell-game. One would think Lynch would be watching her behavior after the appearance of a conflict of interest in meeting privately on an airplane with Bill Clinton right before the final Benghazi report came out, but apparently not. President Obama. along with the top law officer of the United States, Loretta Lynch, as the Attorney general made life extremely difficult for a veteran law enforcement officer and process server to deliver...

    So, let’s review what took place: Tuesday, June 28: Former President Bill Clinton suddenly appears to Attorney General Loretta Lynch in the cabin of her airplane parked on the tarmac in Phoenix, Arizona. Secret Service agents deny access to news photos and videos of the visit. They visit for 30 minutes. Thursday, June 29: Lynch denies that any discussion with Bill Clinton of the FBI’s investigation of Hillary Clinton’s email scandal took place, and states that she expects to accept the recommendation of the FBI as to further actions in the Clinton case. She does not, however, recuse herself or...
