Skip to comments.Huckabee goes off on DOJ ‘slush fund scheme’: Worse than a mafia shakedown

A Justice Department slush fund scheme under former resident Obama reportedly funneled billions of dollars to leftist activist groups in what Mike Huckabee said was worse than a mafia shakedown.
The practice was widely abused under the Obama administration, with liberal groups like La Raza and the National Urban League receiving some of the slush fund money
Virginia Congressman Robert Goodlatte and Sen. James Lankford, both Republicans, have sponsored legislation to end the practice, which investigators have found accounted for $3 billion paid to non-victim entities

$3 billion??? That is a ton of money. One wonders what else it going on with all these departments. No wonder these clowns are screaming like stuck pigs. Trump will be cutting off their money supply.
“The practice was widely abused under the Obama administration, with liberal groups like La Raza and the National Urban League receiving some of the slush fund money “
HEY LIZ, I wonder if Huckabee reads your posts ?
This slush fund used to divert money to far left activists groups by DOJ was clearly done in violation of federal law. Who allocated the funds and who received them?
It is time for Trump to drain the swamp. They want a special investigator for Sessions? Fine - Trump should say I am appointing an independent prosecutor and asking that a Grand Jury be convened to investigate the Clinton foundation.
He must do it. Taking the high road is not working and frankly, there are many of us who would like to know where all that money went! I even remember the government, yes our government, telling people that wanted to donate to Haiti to text the Clinton foundation. Given that we pushed donations to the foundation, we deserve a full accounting (as do the Haitian people) of where that money went.
In fact, if Trump were smart he would announce three investigations for every investigation they call for. Did the FISA court authorize wiretaps of Trump campaign officials? Scandal. Did the prior administration try to sabotage the Trump administration? Did Hillary violate national security and did President Obama know (and also violate it with emails to her?) I want to know. Did the IRS target conservative groups? Did the EPA divert funds to radical environmental groups?
The list goes on and on - Trump needs to fight fire with fire. I am tired of the nonstop fabricated hysteria by the left so President Trump - the other side has called the dance and its time to get on the floor!
This happens all throughout government
The EPA wants to enforce rules for which it doesn’t have power. So it has groups like Sierra Club to sue the Government in a friendly court to get the regulation instituted that way. Funds are then paid to the interested parties like Sierra Club, thus increasing their bank account for the next advocacy push.
Everyone involved in that should go to prison.
Sue and settle is a huge scam. Not just the money; also no public hearings where the public can speak out - when public lands are then closed.
Not to mention O’Communist issuing an Executive Order making domestic CIA disinformation operations legal....
Is the CIA behind the flood of FAKE NEWS coming out of CNN, New York Times, WSJ, MSNBC, Faux News,....?
It is well known that many of the MSM talking heads are CIA trained.....Anderson Cooper, Wolf Blitzer,....
why didn’t they do something BEFORE?....they knew about this...
Making the enemies of the US rich so they can fight us. It was easy to see what they were doing. All the money should be confiscated and Obama, Holder ect in prison.
The Trump administration has to bring Huckabee on board. His observations usually get right to the point, yet he never undermines the message. His TV experience would be an excellent asset for pushback against the maniacs.
Looks like Macho Trump is becoming George W Bush.
Get hammered everyday and do nothing
Trump needs to set up a bulldog posse to go after these pukes on a daily basis while he does his presidential thing
That’s my fave expository post ucs2. Fleshes out the utter corruption of the Royal Idiot and his henchmen.
And Sessions said “Hi” to the Russian Ambdr.
