Professionals across the country have to abide by rules surrounding conflict of interest. Accountants, auditors, attorneys, and others must abide by these rules. These rules however do not apply to the corrupt Department of Justice (including the FBI) where conflicts are customary.
We reported on the many material conflicts of interest surrounding the Mueller gang’s attempted coup of President Trump and his Administration.
Citizen Free Press reported on another material conflict of interest in our government going on right now. These conflicts make it clear there is no integrity in our Justice Department anymore.
A top adviser to Merrick Garland is facing calls to recuse herself from the Justice Department’s investigation of the Trump-Russia probe, which has looked into the actions of her husband Jake Sullivan.
Margaret Goodlander serves as counsel to Garland, who oversees Special Counsel John Durham’s investigation. Garland has oversight of Durham’s budget, the scope of the investigation, and the release of a report Durham is believed to be writing. Sullivan, who married Goodlander in 2015, has been referenced in Durham’s indictment of a cybersecurity lawyer who worked for the Clinton campaign.
While there is no indication that Durham is targeting Sullivan, he could be a witness for the investigation given his role as a foreign policy adviser to Hillary’s campaign. Durham’s report could also reveal embarrassing details about Sullivan’s work to dig up dirt on Donald Trump.
Sen. Chuck Grassley and the watchdog group Empower Oversight say Goodlander should be formally recused from the Durham investigation to maintain public trust in the probe.
“The Justice Department’s standing guidance calls for employees to avoid even the appearance of a conflict of interest, especially when it comes to ongoing criminal investigations,” said Grassley.
“It’s in Garland’s best interest—and he’s obligated—to be transparent about whether his department is walling off officials who have a real or even perceived conflict, just as prior administrations have done.”
Goodlander’s husband worked in the corrupt Obama administration where he laughed with others in the Administration about their lies.
Anyone who wants justice in our Justice Department should be concerned Jake Sullivan’s wife is at a high-level position in the DOJ.
