Exposed: Inside the DOJ 'Hit Squad'
An interesting (and informative) look at how Obama weaponized various agencies such as SEC, FEC, IRS, etc etc.
Normally when someone falls afoul of one of those agencies, there's an administrative fine, no jail time, and no criminal record. Examples might be Elon Musk being fined $20M by the SEC for market manipulation following his attempted joke about taking Tesla private at 420. Evidently "420" was a marijuana reference aimed at his girlfriend, which none of us, and none of the media, got. Or Obama 2008 campaign fined $375,000
, a fine imposed by the FEC (federal election commission) for 2008 campaign violations involving more than $1.8M.
In some instances, a violation is handled as a criminal matter by the DOJ rather than as an administrative matter by the agency involved, and this leads to jail time and a criminal record. Whereas Obama got a fine for campaign finance violations involving more than $1.8M, Duncan Hunter Jr, a republican congressman who was an early supporter of Trump, has been accused of campaign finance violations involving $60k, so about 3% of the amount Obama copped to, and his case is being dealt with by the DOJ as a criminal matter, with the prospect of jail time.
The linked article explains how Obama weaponized the various agencies. People on his enemies list were given extra special scrutiny, and if any violations were found, those cases were dealt with as criminal matters by the DOJ rather than being settled by paying an administrative fine.
Sadly, President Trump has not yet drained the swamp, so the bad actors put in place by Obama remain in place.
