The Department of Justice under Attorney General Jeff Sessions has officially ended the Obama regime's multi-billion dollar "slush fund" used to finance liberal activist groups.
The US Justice Department will no longer pay settlements to third parties that were "neither the victims nor the parties of the lawsuit." The funds were meant for community organizations but conservatives said only liberal organizations benefited.
“When the federal government settles a case against a corporate wrongdoer, any settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people – not to bankroll third-party special interest groups or the political friends of whoever is in power,” Sessions said, adding, “With this directive, we are ending this practice and ensuring that settlement funds are only used to compensate victims, redress harm, and punish and deter unlawful conduct.”
In January, House Judiciary Committee Chairman Bob Goodlatte (R-Virginia) introduced the Stop Settlement Slush Funds Act of 2017, which would prohibit the practice.I would have preferred if they funneled the money to right-wing groups to fight fire with fire.
That said, this is going to deprive far-left activists of literally billions of dollars. This is a major win and there's no way in hell this would have happened under Hillary Clinton.
