It is not something new that the wealthy buy their positions in any presidential administration….it is just a way of life in the DC or our political system.
So when I read the William Barr had gave a bunch of dollars to the GOP Senate…..I was not surprised….may be you will be……
Attorney General William Barr donated $51,000 to the committee tasked with electing Republican senators just as the Republican-led Senate began considering his nomination in late 2018.
Quartz released the details of the conveniently timed donations in a report on Thursday.
Barr occasionally made political donations to the Republican Party between 1993 and 2018.
“In the lead up to his Senate confirmation hearings for attorney general earlier this year, his giving habits suddenly changed,” Quartz reported. “Barr’s donations became far more frequent, notable for their size, recipients, and possible utility to him.”
He gave thousands to the National Republican Senatorial Committee (NRSC) between November 7, 2018, and February 14 of this year, when he was confirmed. Barr’s nomination was publicly announced by Trump on December 7.
Again the old saying holds true….”American politics is the best government money can buy”……
And tomorrow is the big day….a former DoJ employee testifies before Congress…..and the games will begin in earnest.
