There is one thing Obama and the Democrats did very effectively over the years. They politicized government agencies. Just as we saw with the IRS attacking Tea Party groups, the Department of Justice now overwhelmingly leans left.
The Washington Free Beacon reports:
DOJ Employee Donations Overwhelmingly Favor Democrats
Political donations from those who work at the Department of Justice (DOJ) overwhelmingly favor Democratic candidates so far this cycle, data shows.
Individuals at the DOJ have contributed a total of $192,534 so far this election cycle, with $159,800 (83 percent) of this amount going to Democrats. Republicans, on the other hand, have been the recipients of just 14 percent of the total contributions from those at the agency, pulling in $27,129 in donations.
Throughout the 2016 election cycle, employees at the DOJ also overwhelmingly favored Democrats.
DOJ workers handed out nearly $950,000 in total political donations in 2016. Of this amount, $818,985 went to Democrats, or 87 percent of the total donations. Republicans garnered $108,882 in donations from those at the agency in 2016, or 12 percent of all the money given.
Government agencies as a whole shunned President Donald Trump during the 2016 election cycle while giving big to Hillary Clinton’s campaign. Federal employees from 14 agencies gave roughly $2 million in donations, with $1.9 million of that amount going to Clinton, the Hill reported at the time.
This is part of what Trump is talking about when he mentions the swamp and he is fighting it every day.
