Is justice blind in Obama's America? Has President Obama turned the Justice Department into a patronage haven for partisan political advantage? The indictment of conservative activist Dinesh D'Souza raises some troubling questions. The man leading charge against D'Souza is Preet Bharara, who does little to hide his partisan nature. Can Dinesh D'Souza get a fair trial when Preet Bharara is listed as a "Obama Inaugural Donor" according to Open Secrets. All of this raises a larger question, why did Justice Department employees make the top 20 list of financial donors to Barack Obama in 2008 and 2012? How can the public trust the justice system when the money flow shows such a partisan nature? No word yet on this story from MBA-less investment banker Rahm Emanuel of Freddie Mac fame. Also, now word yet on this story from Democrat party donor Jon Corzine of MF Global fame. If the Justice Department did their job they'd realize that Freddie Mac and MF Global were real financial frauds. But, that's Eric Holder style justice for you. In conclusion, Preet Bharara is " Co-Chair of the Securities and Commodities Fraud Working Group of the interagency Financial Fraud Enforcement Task Force" but finds Jon Corzine and Rahm Emanuel's financial actions not worthy of criminal indictment but must throw the book at Dinesh D'Souza!
