It was apparent from the beginning of the investigation into Hillary Clinton’s emails that she would never face justice for her actions because the Department of Justice (DOJ) would not prosecute her due to the corrupt nature of the agency. A look at the political donations of DOJ employees reveals just how entrenched the bias for Clinton at the department truly is.
The Hill poured through Federal Election Committee data to determine the amount of donations from federal government employees to presidential candidates. Federal workers donated a total of $2 million to the presidential candidates, and $1.9 million of it went to Clinton. But the most notable part was the amount of donations that DOJ employees gave to Clinton: (emphasis bolded)
Employees of the Department of Justice, which investigated Clinton’s use of a private email server while she was secretary of State, gave Clinton 97 percent of their donations. Trump received $8,756 from DOJ employees compared with $286,797 for Clinton.
In other words, almost every employee who donated politically at the DOJ wanted to see Clinton as president of the United States. Charges would have destroyed the chances of their candidate of choice. Politics is now above the law at the DOJ.
While people have rightly criticized FBI director James Comey for refusing to recommend indictment charges against Clinton, evidence suggests that the DOJ sabotaged the FBI’s efforts to build a case against Clinton. J. Christian Adams, who used to work in the DOJ, picked up on something Comey said when he was being grilled by Congress: (via the Right Scoop)
Adams appeared on the Mark Levin Show and explained that in FBI investigations, there is a “give-and-take” between the FBI and DOJ,
Where “the FBI agents realize how high the hurdle is for them to make a case,” which appears to have been an insurmountably high hurdle given the DOJ’s bias in favor of Clinton.
“Those guys [in the DOJ] could be rolling their eyes, they could be pushing back, saying, ‘Well that’s not good enough evidence,'” Adams told radio host Mark Levin, per the Right Scoop. “There is a constant give-and-take.
Comey said he’s talking to [Attorney General Loretta] Lynch about it. Those are the moments when the antagonism manifests, when the DOJ shows that they don’t like the case.
And when he says in the hearing today that they had ‘grave concerns’
about using the statute, that tells me it was DOJ that sabotaged this, not the FBI.”
The FEC data uncovered by The Hill indicates that Adams is correct: they never intended to prosecute Clinton.
