This should be chilling for all Americans no matter what your party affiliation is, an incumbent US President’s DOJ going after his opponents top campaign donor. No abuse of power or revenge politics here.
President Barack Obama’s Department of Justice is going after Mitt Romney’s top campaign donor Sheldon Adelson. Frightening, simply frightening. The same DOJ that would not go after the New Black Panther Party for obvious voter intimidation sees fit to go after an opponents donor. Who else is on Obama’s enemies list and can you imagine what Obama and his henchman will do if reelected for another 4 years.
And this peons think I am a nice guy, boy do I have them fooled …
The Justice Department is investigating whether Las Vegas Sands Corp., owned by high-profile Republican donor Sheldon Adelson, broke federal law by failing to report millions of dollars of potentially laundered money transferred to its casinos by two high-rolling Las Vegas gamblers, according to the Wall Street Journal.
The U.S. attorney’s office in Los Angeles is investigating deposits made in the mid-2000s by a Mexican pharmaceutical businessman, later indicted for drug trafficking in 2007, and a California executive with Fry’s Electronics, who later pleaded guilty to taking illegal kickbacks, the newspaper said, citing lawyers and federal officials working on the case.
As stated at Weasel Zippers this is a chilling abuse of power, yet the MSM is as silent as a church mouse. Imagine, just imagine if GWB had done this when seeking reelection?
