Criminal Rot Spreads Through Justice Department

February 2nd, 2012 - 6:56 am

There seems to be a pattern emerging in the Holder Justice Department: DOJ employees committing crimes and very little seems to happen to them.  I’m not just talking about the questionable testimony under oath of Attorney General Eric Holder or Assistant Attorney General Tom Perez. I’m talking about theft, graft, child porn, bribery, and perjury. The fact that very little ever seems to happen to DOJ officials who purportedly commit the crimes tells you a great deal about the leadership of the Obama DOJ.

Matthew Boyle at the Daily Caller has this explosive story on DOJ officials taking bribes from people they are investigating. Yes, you read that correctly. More:

A U.S. Justice Department source has told The Daily Caller that at least two DOJ prosecutors accepted cash bribes from allegedly corrupt finance executives who were indicted under court seal within the past 13 months, but never arrested or prosecuted.

This means DOJ lawyers, criminal prosecutors, are accused of accepting cash from the people they were investigating. But it gets worse. Eric Holder knows about it and is doing nothing:

The bribed officials, an attorney with knowledge of the investigation told TheDC, remain on the taxpayers’ payroll at the Justice Department without any accountability. The DOJ source said Holder does not want to admit public officials accepted bribes while under his leadership.

Eric Holder is both incompetent and ideologically radical.  You cannot have a more toxic mix atop the Department of Justice.  As I mentioned, this is not the first instance of crimes being allegedly committed by DOJ officials where nothing happens.
