Attorney General Sessions Set to Investigate Slush Funds

A memo sent to US attorneys late last month ordered a review of a decade’s worth of payouts that many have called a “political slush fund.” These slush funds, according to the New York Post, “regularly arranged for major corporations to make large donations to left-leaning groups during settlement negotiations to end banking, environmental, civil-rights, and other federal lawsuits.”

“Settlement funds should go first to the victims and then to the American people — not to . . . the political friends of whoever is in power,” said Attorney General Jeff Sessions in a recent statement.

This investigation serves as the “first tally of the cash that ended up in the hands” of special interest groups, concludes the article.
