Rick Santorum to Newsmax: Obama’s DOJ Most Politically ‘Corrupt’ Ever

by Todd Beamon  |  published on October 25, 2015

The Justice Department under President Barack Obama is the most “corrupt … that we’ve ever seen” after disclosing Friday that it would not prosecute the IRS in the targeting scandal, Republican presidential candidate Rick Santorum told Newsmax TV.

“This Justice Department will go down, along with this president, as the worst presidency and the worst Justice Department, the most corrupt Justice Department, or I should say corrupt from a political standpoint, that we’ve ever seen,” the former Pennsylvania senator told “The Steve Malzberg Show.”

The department told Congress on Friday that it was closing its investigation of the Internal Revenue Service on the targeting of tea party and conservative groups without bringing charges against the agency and its controversial former director, Lois Lerner.

    This is the small stuff !

  • pete G

    They know how corrupt this Administration is and they do nothing. Jefferson said that big corrupt Government will never destroy a country but the people who do nothing about it will.

  • Jo

    My question is: When will the rest of our elected officials wake up to the eminent destruction of our country and our lives.

  • SDofAZ

    Thus the reason for separating the president from the agencies going forward. This has been an eye opener. This prez has twisted the mandate of every federal agency he has touched. He has placed equal minded individuals in charge and made them accountable only to him. That is wrong. Those agencies are accountable to we the people. BO is not their lord and master but they act like it. Dam traitors in the DOJ and the DHS for an absolute certainty and the IRS and EPA and FCC are in that next tier of traitors to the legal constituents, the constitution, and the country as an entity with sovereignty. This prez will be infamous. He has been like a truly arrogant narcissistic sociopath who cares only for his own wants and desires. When our president will not enforce our laws, he is a rogue president. That is what BO is. We have to snap that relationship between the prez and the agencies going forward. And we have to absolutely make the agencies liable for their decisions and their actions to the legal constituents going forward. No more we report only to the prez, that needs to be we report only to the people and the constitution and the laws of this country.

  • Peter

    Americans are the most giving people and most tolerant group of people. they are falling all over themselves to appear politically correct. You have a president that has stomped on the Constitution which he avowed to uphold, He has lied openly for the last 7 years without repercussion and he will get bolder. A comment was made that it “appears” that they are in the majority. That is wrong. They are not. Of the 6 major media outlets, they control all. They have made your president , a community agitator/lawyer appear to be so wonderful and wise. If every American that was able to vote stopped complaining an got out to vote there would be good changes. Get involved. Talk to friends and neighbors and encourage them to vote. Help them to vote. Be proactive. Find out about your candidates. Forget the labels Democrats/Republicans. Look at their platforms and support the ones that stand for what you believe in.

    • SDofAZ

      Very good post Peter. Keep saying this over and over again. That is a fine soap box you are on. I have one very similar. Bug everyone you know until they all vote. Vote every dem wit dem and rino out who has supported this mess. Of all the candidates running there are only three that have not stood and allowed this prez his PC corrupt way. They are Trump, Carson, and Cruz. Fiorina being a corporate want to be rino is not to be trusted. Everyone has a record you can view saying I am a rino and I supported what has been happening the past two terms of BO. Not voting is the same as voting in my view. One of Rubio’s ploys. All the prez candidates on both sides are NOT doing this country or their constituents any favors. Time to vote accordingly. I am sick of amnesty and hordes of illegal aliens sucking on welfare and coming here illegally. That makes Trump my only pick. McCain in AZ is a traitor, time for anyone to take his seat and depose the old goat!

  • ZACAL

    Black leaders don’t want to help other blacks succeed in america, they want to get even for slavery. Talk about being out of touch, Republican President Lincoln put an end to slavery with a victory in the civil war.

  • gavinwca

    This is the way Fascist governments work. We knew that when the voteing machines elected this piece of S**t

  • We need our military to move on the WH and walk everyone out in handcuffs, line them against a wall on the Front Lawn, and execute each and every one of the treasonous SOB’s of the Obama Administration! They are all Criminals! If Hillary is allowed to continue running, and especially, if the Criminal Whore wins, then it will be a sure sign that we Patriots must take up Arms against the Criminals of this and Hillary’s Administration! We, the People did it once, we can and will do it again! God Bless America and please rid our Nation of these corrupt, godless Democrats! Democrats and Muslims are all the same, nothing more than Filth made Flesh!

  • stonefellow

    Congress needs to formally ask in open committee the head of the DOJ why they are not pursuing the Lerner case. Congress needs to have a special prosecuter if the DOJ fails.

  • a flag waving AMERICAN mike

    P.S. I for got to say good by.

  • a flag waving AMERICAN mike

    I give up I will be leaving this site every one bitches and no one is doing any thing about it my self include s I am going to stop and I am going to pray to my god to stop what is going on in the world if he won’t stop it I hope he will blow us into week so Obama Hillary can’t have it those dirty SOB

  • Jo

    The entire world is laughing at us, because we have the most corrupt administration ever. Our so-called ‘Justice Dept.’ is NOT JUST. Illegals who are arrested for murder, are not deported, they commit crimes over and over. Our I.R.S. has admitted to the crime of slamming the door on Conservative Groups during the last election, but gave an account to Obama’s brother who is a citizen of Kenya, and a member of the Muslim Brotherhood. Congress needs to cut off funds to the I.R.S. and make a law for a ‘Fair Tax’ and cut off funds for the Justice Dept. until they get rid of the current lawyers who refuse to obey the laws of our land.

  • Patriot47

    Why do members of Congress continue to pretend to be “shocked” by the lawless actions of this lawless administration/abomination? It’s SOP. Quit insulting our intelligence.

  • Antonio

    I may add this; “It’s the most corrupt president we ever have. Maybe I didn’t dig deep enough to know for sure, please correct me if I’m wrong.For sure obama is the only president that got away with all the wrongdoing, disregarding the constitution and the voters wishes. I seen it back where i came from, never thought that would happen here in USA. But never say never, I learned that one. God have mercy on us, things doesn’t look good for the future of this nation.

    • billdeserthills

      No other president could have gotten away with the over one thousand lies this president has told. Obama must have something on almost every congressman in washington

      • Antonio

        Skin color and the Kool-Aid drinkers. The Democrats has been working on this since the 50’s, through our Schools, brainwashing the kids. Remember the youths are the ones that goes to the streets and protest, we old folks don’t bother we have our responsibilities; Family, jobs etc. So the youth today are OK with all that this president does. Babies well nurtured don’t cry too often.

        • pete G

          You know the young have been convinced by the liberal communist that this is all about this man’s skin color when experienced older people know this is about corruption from a man who would literally crown himself king of America if he could.

          • Antonio

            Amen my brother. The D booed God out of their last convention, remember? We need to invite God back. No nation gets a good end choosing the devil to be their king. I will never understand the way how liberals see things. Sad times, perhaps I think the end of times is near.

  • reagangs

    When is NewsmaxTV going to get closed captioning???? Regards. Deaf fan.

  • a flag waving AMERICAN mike

    This is why the military has to get a set of balls and remove Obama. you cut the head of a snake from the body it dies and with that being said Hillary won’t be far behind

    • KDC

      And we can then watch the rioting all over the nation. That’s why they do nothing.

  • a flag waving AMERICAN mike

    To every one out there I am going to ask you to go Hillsdale College and take a on line class constitution 101 it will give you some very good info. if you real good insight to the U.S. It free no money you can’t beat the price.It has more info. than I can type an pass on.right now thank you

  • Lily Haley

    He hit that nail on the head. I’ve been calling it the department of injustice for several years. If the issue doesn’t favor Obama and the perverted liberal ideology they rule against it, or won’t even investigate. The Constitution has no influence on them.

  • pete G

    These stinking Republicans are responsible for this woman Barack Obama appointed to the DOJ. Stop your damn crying and fight this out of control DICKtator you’re making us all sick.

  • Webb

    The DOJ…Corrupt From Holder To Lynch, Nothing New Under The Obama Administration! Lies and Deceit Will Continue If Hillary Were To get Elected…
    Learner Lied…Hillary Lied…Rule Of Law Never Followed…D.C. Never Changes!!

  • VM Sheppard

    Does this surprise anyone? The question is, what can be done about it? Does anyone know if Supremes can be disbarred for ethics violations?

    It’s not the only questionable thing they’ve done in recent years… after all, since when does the DOJ make laws? They’ve been doing that, too (ex: making gay marriages legal nationwide)… Their purpose is to interpret the law and clarify the intent of the law. Congress creates laws.

    There are no more checks and balances and the corruption is just disgusting. They’re all demonic. Is there any wonder why we can’t trust our government?

  • We are hearing things of this nature from more and more of the people “On the hill”! Maybe they are getting a clue! This is the most corrupt government EVER in our history! My opinion is, that Hillary will go down this time. I just wish that her supporters would get the same clue, she cannot put everyone on the payroll!!

    • KDC

      No, they aren’t JUST getting a clue. It’s nearing the end of the dictator in chief’s, reign. They are testing the water as it gets closer. They get more emboldened.

  • nonstopca

    If YOU didn’t see this coming…..your blind.

  • Evermyrtle

    I attempted to get on the site with “Stop Criticizing Obama” and was refused ADMISSION, there I will make an attempt to speak here!!!!!!!.

    Are we being denied the right to speak??. Maybe we do not need to criticize him but there is “NOTHING ELSE” we can say about him, THEREFORE WE ARE NOT ALLOWED TO SPEAK THE TRUTH!”. The rest of the world can speak the truth but we are muzzled. He has more rights than GOD has; excuse me, “He is GOD, of the anti-Christ. Islamists hate our “GOD OF THE UNIVERSE” and this is what happens the first time in America’s history.

    • KDC

      You can’t comment about a narcissist. They might get their feelings hurt hearing the truth. Besides, in their eyes, they don’t do any wrong. They are the all knowing, wonderful people who are better than you.

  • YeahBut

    This is why Evil Hillary will never be prosecuted.

    • reagangs

      It’s all a part of the radical liberals, progressives, socialist and commies that use old Sal Alinsky’s Rules for Radicals. Do anything to their political enemies that they can to discredit them. Ignore, pass off, counter argue with dribble and try to confuse the issues. Hillary did a fantastic job of campaigning during the Benghazi hearings time and time again whenever the questions were too hard or asking for the truth. Much like the DOJ and the IRS and EPA hearings on government over reach and harassment.

          crazy if your a democrat

          • Ron Warren

            Democrats are liberals and liberalism is a mental disorder.

          • pete G

            Liberals believe that if you disagree with this President you have to be racist, but i believe if you agree with this President and his policies you have to be corrupt.

        • pete G

          He didn’t lie so how could he be a liberal?

    • KDC

      Yeah, I’m afraid it is going that way. What a crying shame !

    • don

      because they are not held to the law as they hold us

  • mike

    Its like it hasn’t been staring them in the face for the last seven years.Why isn’t anything being done about this

    • paulrph1

      They are just following their leader. Corruptness breeds more corruptness and they have nothing to worry about because the leader-in-chief will do nothing but praise them and they he will give them another job somewhere else and with more money.

      • don

        an us setting lets them run free

    • Ace Dragon

      BECAUSE THIS HAS BEEN PLANED SINCE THEY KILLED KENNEDY.

  • Arthur L. Trevallee

    It looks like the Department of Injustice cannot even see the forest for the trees!

    • Evermyrtle

      They allow themselves to be told what they can say and do by the enemy of whom they fear more that anything in life and are controlled by that fear. It is “A Hell Of a Thing” for America. It is ruling America, it appears there are more of them than there is of us.

    • VM Sheppard

      Oh, they see it… They just don’t have anyone who will stop them.

      • don

        we want stop them–that is the problem

      • gavinwca

        The RINOS voted for this Attorney General to take office even after she told them she agreed with OBOLAS interpitation of the Constitution and laws. Vote a RINO out of office along with the democrats.

        • SDofAZ

          We need a good conservative in AZ. Know anyone? Otherwise it is a choice between rino McCain and a dem. Right now I would vote dem just to unseat McCain in his attempt for his sixth term. Old goat needs to retire and let another republican run. Without him on that ticket they might keep the seat in the GOP. Otherwise, the dem will get it. McCain has voted right along with McConnell on everything. Foolish old man! Lost touch with his constituents. We are FED UP!

          • pete G

            The people in this country have to be willing to shut this regime down no matter how long it takes to regain control of this Muslim wanna-be in the white house. If you’re not willing to do that the corruption will continue. When they shut it down the last time no one suffered, but Obama would have you believe the world was close to ending when in reality it did nothing and all Government employees got their pay so i say shut the damn thing down and play as rough as it takes for this DICKtator to be over thrown.

          • SDofAZ

            You are right! One paycheck in this house if federal and the shut down threat is a JOKE! Everyone even gets paid if they do get sent home and they are labeled non essential employees by the way which means they are not necessary to run the government. The others who are STAY at work. This is a ridiculous argument for the rinos to use for their go along get along actions and that old spider McConnell knows it too. Damn traitors all. Good call Pete G.

      • SDofAZ

        Not this congress or judicial bunch in DC today anyway.

    • don

      no its us who can not see the trees for the forest–an us setting in the middle of it–WE could stop this–but we will not–their is no fight in us an its from not caring

      • reagangs

        When dealing with the Obummer legacy and administration, we are arguing with IDIOTS.

      • Ace Dragon

        YOUR CONFESSING YOUR SELF. I HAVE BEEN CHOPPING DOWN THOSE TREES, SO WE THE PEOPLE CAN SEE THE FOREST.

    • pete G

      You have to be damn corrupt to turn Lois Lerner loose. She deserves a cell next to Obama, Rice, Holder, Hillary, and all who approve of this way to Govern.

  • you just figured that out now, mr santorum??!! wow.

      He’s been saying it for 7 years…..
