Huckabee is absolutely correct. All fines, no matter what kind they are, should be going to the general fund since it is the government organization, not the organization itself, that is collecting the fines. Going anywhere else breaks the taxation without representation clause, and fines fall into that category. Bring back the Rule of Law, and SHUT DOWN the organization’s that received the money.
It’s simply outrageous the lengths Obama and the Clintons go to engage in corruption. Of course, so far it has paid off well for them since no charges have ever been charged.
Ok folks we know this is against our laws and our Constitution… my question is what will be done about it?
We have proof that Obama and Hillary committed treason and high crimes against our country but no one has the balls to go after them!!! We are sick of the biggest chunks in the swamp not being removed. They ARE keeping the swamp from being drained.
If you don’t go after these two we are nothing better than a third word banana republic where the rich and politically connected are above the law!!!
Luckily, President Trump is EXACTLY the kind of President to go after them!! Keep praying for Trump. He’s done so much already, but there’s still so much to do.
According to American Conservative Herald:
WATCH Huckabee DESTROY Obama about his “slush fund”:
The story begins with the findings of a congressional committee: “The House Judiciary Committee found that when the DOJ takes legal action against banks and businesses for various reasons, the defendants are often eager to settle. The money from those settlements is often divided between affected customers, the government, or it can be donated to what Republicans call a ‘slush fund’ at the DOJ. Under the Obama administration, recipients of the ‘slush fund’ money included La Raza and the National Urban League, two decidedly liberal entities, FoxNews.com reported.”
Well now, Mr. Obama and his leftist allies are so eager to investigate President Trump, perhaps in the interest of justice, Mr. Obama needs a bit of investigating as well. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee goes even further: “Huckabee said that no matter their ideology, the slush fund violates the Constitution because only Congress can allocate money in that way. ‘Somebody ought to go to jail for this,’ he said, calling the fund ‘a case where liberals have played Robin Hood. They’ve stolen from the government and given it to their pals,’ he said.”
Perhaps somebody ought to, but don’t expect it anytime soon. At this point, all we have is some proposed legislation: “Martha MacCallum reported that Virginia Congressman Robert Goodlatte (R-Roanoke) and Sen. James Lankford (R-Okla.) have sponsored legislation to end the practice.”
Ending the practice is a wonderful idea. But since when does anyone think that a mere law would stop someone like Barack Obama or the Clintons from acting in their best interests? Some prosecutions would make the point much better.
