Is it any wonder why there are still government leaks and gridlock? The Department of Justice is still filled with holdovers from the Obama administration. Trump’s team needs to be more proactive in getting rid of these folks and replacing them with their own people.
The Hill reports:
Obama holdovers at the Justice Department still run the show
The recusal of Attorney General Jeff Sessions from all things Russia has unexpectedly revealed the political proclivities of so many deeply embedded Justice Department and FBI employees. Texts, memos, FISA warrants and dossiers have the Russia scandal boiling over, but not in the way some anticipated.
None of this is surprising to anyone aware of the lopsided support for Democrats in campaign donations by Justice Department employees. The unraveling over the last few weeks of the texts, actions and emails of FBI agents, FBI leaders and Justice Department enablers — some even appointed by President Trump, such as Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein — has revealed a federal law enforcement apparatus that wished the 2016 election never occurred.
But the problem at the Justice Department is even worse. Unfortunately, in important components of the Justice Department, the deep-state strategy of seeking to nullify the results of the 2016 election is being employed without garnering as much attention.
The election was almost a year and a half ago. It is high time for members of Obama’s team to find new jobs elsewhere.
