Biden Welcomes Back The Washington Swamp – Joe Plans To Bring Back Obama’s “Slush Fund” Payouts For Special Interests

What’s Happening:

Joe Biden is promising to bring back a “calmer” Washington. Whatever that means.

If Washington wasn’t calm during the Trump administration, it’s because the president was busy burning down the swamp.

He was going after the insiders that put globalists and special interest groups ahead of you and me.

Now, it looks like Biden is showing us just what he meant by rebuilding a major swamp establishment. From Fox News:

Joe Biden is calling for the Justice Department to look into reinstating a controversial Obama-era practice that allowed prosecutors to make settlement agreements that resulted in defendants paying outside groups instead of victims or the government…

A Republican-backed bill known as the “Stop Settlement Slush Funds Act of 2017” would have made the practice illegal.

Only after Obama left office did we really hear about this nice, little arrangement. Under his DOJ, companies were forced to payout to often left-wing groups, rather than the victims involved in their cases.

The government would essentially go after big companies, prosecute them in court, and take their money and give it to special interests.

Many called it a “slush fund,” because it aided political allies of the president, not Americans.

It looks like Joe Biden will restore this practice, according to reports.

It’s hard not to think this is a way Biden wants to repay those activists and PACs that helped him get elected.

But even if that’s not the case, how can anyone justify this kind of system? If a company is found guilty of a crime and has to pay a penalty, shouldn’t it go to the people they wronged?

And how can the government say it’s perfectly okay for this money to go to political groups, who just happen to support them?

Do you think the swamp will get worse under President Biden?

Key Takeaways:

  • Joe Biden is reportedly looking to bring back the DOJ “slush fund.”
  • This practice existed under Obama and gave cash settlements to political groups.
  • Companies found guilty were not required to repay victims, but progressive organizations.
