As the Jeff Sessions non-story percolates, I thought you might want to see a real one – one that, I’m betting, will not get far beyond the coverage found in Melissa Jacobs’ article at Fox News – the first part of which is shown below:

The Obama administration funneled billions of dollars to activist organizations through a Department of Justice slush fund scheme, according to congressional investigators.

 “It’s clear partisan politics played a role in the illicit actions that were made,” Rep. John Ratcliffe, R-Texas, told Fox News. “The DOJ is the last place this should have occurred.”

Findings spearheaded by the House Judiciary Committee point to a process shrouded in secrecy whereby monies were distributed to a labyrinth of nonprofit organizations involved with grass-roots activism.

“Advocates for big government and progressive power are using the Justice Department to extort money from corporations,” Judicial Watch’s Tom Fitton told Fox News. “It’s a shakedown. It’s corrupt, pure and simple.”

There is a recent effort by Republicans to eliminate the practice, which many believe was widely abused during the Obama administration

Now that’s a real story.  One with far-reaching implications.  One which, if it is true – i.e. if the House Judiciary Committee evidence bears out –  is a major scandal.

But see which of the two get more coverage today and tomorrow:  Jeff Sessions’ fully public, not in any way hidden two meetings with the Russian Ambassador (how many Obama people did he meet with during the same period)), or billions of dollars funneled to Obama-supporting left wing activist groups, and “shakedowns” of corporations.

I’ll bet you already know the answer.  So do I.
