What’s Stopping Obama and the DOJ From Going After Wall Street Criminally?

Sean interviewed Former attorney for the Voting Rights Section of the Department of Justice, J. Christian Adams, author of “Injustice: Exposing the Racial Agenda of the Obama Justice Department.” In the book Adams draws the clear picture of how the Obama DOJ, lead by Eric Holder, swept the voter intimidation lawsuit against the New Black Panther Party under the rug, and how the administration changed DOJ hiring policy in order to hire radical leftists to dominate the Civil Rights Division.

A new shocking report posted on the Daily Beast today by Peter Boyer and Peter Schweizer show yet another honey jar the DOJ’s paw is stuck in. Despite tough rhetoric aimed at Wall Street and banks since the collapse and excessive bailouts, the Obama administration has not filed a single criminal charge against any top executives of the financial institutions. While America learned of the extravagant bonuses being doled out even while accepting taxpayer bailouts, Obama simultaneously threw fiery rhetoric in their direction: “My administration is the only things between you and the pitchforks,” and calling bankers “fat cats.” Interesting choice of words since, as Boyer and Schweizer report, “Candidate Obama had been their guy, accepting vast amounts of Wall Street campaign money for his victories over Hillary Clinton and John McCain (Goldman Sachs executives ponied up $1 million, more than any other private source of funding in 2008). Obama far outraised his Republican rival, John McCain, on Wall Street--around $16 million to $9 million.”

Perhaps that explains why the president’s rhetoric and actions have been the complete antithesis of one another. What else? Perhaps we are being too quick to place blame on the president. Let us move along to his appointed Attorney General, Eric Holder. Perhaps the lack of criminal action against “fat cats” can be explained there. Eureka! In fact it can. The man president Obama chose to run his administration’s Department of Justice spent nearly a decade in the Washington office of Covington & Burling law firm. No biggie, except for the fact that the financial institutions’ “marquee names are Covington clients. Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan Chase, Citigroup, Bank of America, Wells Fargo, and Deutsche Bank are among the institutions that pay for Covington's legal advice, some of it relating to matters before the Department of Justice” say Schweizer and Boyer.
