FRAUD: DOJ Funneled Housing Crisis Money to Immigrant Activists

WASHINGTON EXAMINER — Justice Department officials used unusual bank settlements to fund liberal activist groups without the consent of Congress, rather than help the victims of the housing crisis, according to congressional investigators.

“Instead of trying to help more people who were harmed by the downturn, they instead decided to line the pockets of third-party groups,” House Financial Services oversight subcommittee Chairman Sean Duffy, R-Wis., told reporters Friday morning in a call hosted by Cause of Action.

The DOJ bank settlements have attracted suspicion in both chambers of Congress, where Republicans have practical concerns about where the money went, as well as constitutional problems with how the Justice Department came up with a plan to extract money from banks that it could use without having to go through a congressional appropriations process.
