Former President Obama and his administration are under the microscope after allegations have resurfaced from May of last year. U.S. District Court Judge Andrew Hanen criticized the Department of Justice officials, stating their “conduct is certainly not worthy of any department whose name includes the word ‘Justice’.”
According to Hanen the DOJ “has now admitted [to] making statements that clearly did not match the facts. It has admitted that the lawyers who made these statements had knowledge of the truth when they made these misstatements.”
According to Angry Patriot “The DOJ claimed its lawyers “lost focus” and that the facts somehow got lost in their memory, but Hanen did not buy it. He knew that the lies happened on multiple occasions and began with the very first hearing.”
This excuse by the DOJ is a very convenient theory for the parties at fault, but Hanan isn’t ready to let them off the hook just yet. He believes that the government is being “intentionally deceptive” and he ordered then-Attorney General Loretta Lynch to come up with a plan “to prevent this unethical conduct from ever occurring again.”
While some of the sanctions that Hanan leveled at the DOJ have since been withdrawn, it’s becoming clear that the Department of Justice under President Obama were given free reign for unethical and down right shady practices.
