Exclusive: Larry Klayman flays Trump’s AG for allowing corruption to continue at DOJ
By Larry Klayman | 20 October 2017
WORLD NET DAILY — As I chronicle in my autobiography, “Whores: Why and How I Came To Fight the Establishment!” I was once a proud trial lawyer in the Antitrust Division of the U.S. Department of Justice (DOJ). Indeed, as a young 27-year-old attorney in the Reagan DOJ, I was on the trial team that eventually broke up the AT&T monopoly, creating needed and innovative competition in the telecommunications industry. During my time at Justice, I worked closely with special agents of the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI), the investigative arm of the Department. I found them to be generally straightforward and honest people. However, as I discussed in my latest column and in my book, I did find that politics and the so-called “right” connections frequently perverted other cases at my alma mater. That ultimately is why, in large part, I conceived of and founded Judicial Watch on July 29, 1994, to be the People’s Justice Department, untainted by the ever-growing reptilian swamp in the nation’s capital and specifically its government law enforcement and legal communities.
Today, 23 years after I started Judicial Watch, and 13 years after I also founded Freedom Watch – which now does the heavy legal lifting I used to do at Judicial Watch – the politicized state of DOJ and the FBI has grown to cancerous proportions, underscoring the need for a Freedom Watch. Let me give you a rundown of just how corrupted the DOJ and its FBI have become.
First, one need not look much further than the current state of affairs, even under new Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Running scared that the AG himself was legally vulnerable for his “forgetful encounters” with the Russian ambassador during the Trump presidential campaign, Sessions recused himself and allowed his Democratic hack underling, Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, an Obama holdover as former U.S. attorney for Maryland, to appoint as special counsel partisan hack former FBI Director Robert Mueller, who now heads a witch hunt of “the president and all of his men (and women)” over so-called Russian collusion. The attorney general clearly put his own interests ahead of the president and the nation – as the now runaway Mueller grand jury investigation, so riddled with criminal leaks and high-priced leftist pro-Obama and pro-Clinton prosecutors, is now on a legal jihad to destroy the new administration, as payback for Trump’s firing Mueller’s friend, former FBI director and equally corrupt James Comey.
