Here come the hyperpartisan hounds.
A new nonprofit called American Oversight launched this week to combat President Trump’s “culture of impunity.” The outfit declared itself “nonpartisan” and claims its crusaders will fight for a “transparent and ethical government.”
But like Waylon Jennings once crooned, “Baby, that dog won’t hunt.”
These Democrat operatives aren’t interested in accountability. Their mission is to attack, obstruct, and destroy their political opponents at all costs.
Executive director and Obama donor Austin Evers is certainly familiar with the “culture of impunity.” He worked as a lawyer at Williams and Connolly — the firm representing Hillary Clinton and the same firm that boasts longtime Clinton consigliere David Kendall, who shepherded scandal-ridden Bill and Hill through Whitewater, Lewinsky-gate and Email-gate. Evers had zero experience handling public records and classified document requests before he was hired by the State Department in 2015 to be Hillary’s information blocker. But the ethical olfactory nerves of the Democrats suddenly shut down over the clear conflict of interest.
“At the very least, this suspect arrangement raises questions about the State Department hiring process,” GOP representative Bob Goodlatte complained to the agency’s inspector general. “At worst, it suggests willful obstruction by handpicked Clinton associates at the State Department on behalf of former Secretary Clinton, to ensure damaging or incriminating documents never saw the light of day.”
American Oversight also employs Obama donor John Bies, who served as counselor to former corruptocrat Obama attorney general Eric Holder. Bies and Holder worked together at white-shoe law firm Covington and Burling. That’s the same law firm that represented 17 Yemeni terror suspects held at Gitmo — including at least a dozen who rejoined al-Qaida after being freed.
Among Holder’s countless subversions of transparency was his refusal to cough up the names of appointees who had been involved in legal work on behalf of Gitmo detainees.
In February 2010, after 9/11 families raised hell, GOP senator Charles Grassley finally forced Holder to acknowledge that at least nine DOJ attorneys officially represented or served as advocates for Gitmo detainees before joining the Obama administration. But he still refused to reveal their identities. Bies was one of the suspected nameless abettors.
That kind of backside-covering secrecy and conflict-of-interest cover-up are government failings that American Oversight senior adviser Melanie Sloan might have once protested.
