Matthew Boyle at the Daily Caller has this late breaking blockbuster story:

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.

The sitting governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands, his attorney general and an unspecified number of Virgin Islands legislators also accepted bribes, the source said, adding that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is aware prosecutors and elected officials were bribed and otherwise compromised, but has not held anyone accountable.

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.

Go read the whole report. You might also want to revisit our reporting here at PJ Media last year about the DOJ’s scuttling of the impending terror finance prosecution of Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR) co-founder Omar Ahmad and the money laundering/tax evasion prosecutions of the executives of the International Institute for Islamic Thought (IIIT).
