Skip to comments.Trump ends Obama's Operation Choke Point
Posted on 08/18/2017 7:48:55 AM PDT by sheikdetailfeather
The Trump administration has ended Operation Choke Point, the anti-fraud initiative started under the Obama administration that many Republicans argued was used to targeted gun retailers and other businesses that Democrats found objectionable.
Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd told GOP representatives in a Wednesday letter that that the long-running program had ended, bringing a conclusion to a chapter in the Obama years that long provoked and angered conservatives who saw Choke Point as an extralegal crackdown on politically disfavored groups.
"All of the department's bank investigations conducted as part of Operation Chokepoint are now over, the initiative is no longer in effect, and it will not be undertaken again," Boyd wrote in the letter.
The letter was addressed to Jeb Hensarling and Bob Goodlatte, the chairmen of the Financial Services and Judiciary Committees, respectively. Their staffs confirmed they received the letter.
The Republicans had written last week to Attorney General Jeff Session for confirmation that the program was over so that businesses that might be targeted could breathe easy.

I’ll be first...Winning!
Didn’t ya hear? He’s gonna be impeached and kicked out any day.
He’s a nazi.
He’s a wannabe hitler.
He’s a ...
He’s the best president since The Great One is what he is.
That man freed HUNDREDS of millions from the bondage of communism so I will not say Trump is a BETTER president.
Just being equal with President RR is praise enough1!
Maybe in 3 years, I dont know.
But “Tear down that wall” was the greatest statement a US President has made since...well I dont know when.
Trump and Reagan have one thing in common. They Believe ANYTHING is possible.
That’s why I love them both.
Yep! We gave Trump the power to click the “undo” button on Obama’s destructive commie agenda. No wonder they are squealing so loud every day.
Ths crazy SOB insanely thought that he could come out of NYC and be on the GOP ticket, having been host of a reality TV show, no REAL proven conservative credentials, no experience in office, previous comments that sounded kind of leftist, 1 in a field of 16, and be elected POTUS!!!!
If only I had 5 percent of that kind of faith in myself.
God bless him.
BTW, as a fellow NYCer, you DO have to nod in agreement or just keep your mouth shut when it comes to liberals to get a job or grow a business here UNTIL you are hired (that’s when my true colros show :) ) or until you are so powerful that you don’t need to anymore (That’s Trump :) )
And they both loved America. MAGA!
Part of the antics of the Left are designed to distract from the NUMEROUS victories by our wonderful President! WINNING!!!
BTW, how the #### is anything BUT sara whatshername slut’s IT workers on any cover of any newspaper?
What a sham the msm is.
Trump should turn it against liberal groups instead of ending it.
EXACTLY! This latest onslaught of vitriol, and distraction started just as he won the current, but assuredly not the last round of whack-a-mole with North Korea. A major win that the left needed to counter, and they grabbed ahold of Charlottesville, and ran with it. Still running with it.
Keep winning Mr. President, for the country.
He has been on the Awan case for almost a year. He posts several short self-made videos every day. He travels all over the country following leads wherever they take him. The Awan case is actually related to multiple other cases.
George Webb is probably the best investigative journalist on earth right now, very well connected, being fed info from many intel sources. His videos aren't pretty but the content is superb.
I do now. Thanks.
I’m pretty in the dark about that whole situation. Time to catch up.
Squealing? No they’re doing more. Sending out people to cause chaos and take our minds off the corruption findings.
He started from scratch and know much more today then he did even a month or 2 ago. You may need to follow him for several days to catch on.
The key to remember is he's not always talking to the public, but he uses his videos to communicate with his network of sources. Keep that in mind if you get confused.
