Justice Department Officials Accepted Bribes, and Attorney General Eric Holder Knew About It

February 2, 2012 at 10:13 am (Bribe, Corruption, DOJ, Eric Holder, Justice Department, Virgin Islands)

But, but, he had know idea what was going on in his own department…

A stunning report from the Daily Caller:

A U.S. Justice Department source has told The Daily Caller that at least two DOJ prosecutors accepted cash bribes from allegedly corrupt finance executives who were indicted under court seal within the past 13 months, but never arrested or prosecuted.

The sitting governor of the U.S. Virgin Islands, his attorney general and an unspecified number of Virgin Islands legislators also accepted bribes, the source said, adding that U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder is aware prosecutors and elected officials were bribed and otherwise compromised, but has not held anyone accountable.

The bribed officials, an attorney with knowledge of the investigation told TheDC, remain on the taxpayers’ payroll at the Justice Department without any accountability. The DOJ source said Holder does not want to admit public officials accepted bribes while under his leadership.

Isn’t his alleged lack of knowledge – despite clear evidence of his actual knowledge – of Justice Department corruption just as worthy a reason for Holder’s resignation?
