Big Surprise: Loretta Lynch and DOJ to probe wrong group
At a July 22 press conference, when asked about the Center for Medical Progress’s Planned Parenthood videos, Attorney General Loretta Lynch said she was “aware of those matters generally from the media.and some inquiries that have been made to the Department of Justice.” She then stated she would “review all information and determine what steps to take”
Recall that in 2011 Lynch’s boss used the same talking point regarding the gun-running operation known as Fast and Furious. Obama told CNN Espanol he heard about Fast and Furious “in the news” and had assigned an inspector general to investigate.
Clearly, investigating people selling dead baby parts and murdering border patrol agents are not high on Team Obama’s to-do list.
Lynch refers to the horrific videos of Planned Parenthood execs casually discussing the butchery of human babies for money as “those matters.” Not surprising. This is the same woman, along with Obama, who opposed the ban on partial birth abortions.
In a 2006 amicus brief for Planned Parenthood, U.S. Attorney Lynch and fellow lawyers argued “that the definition regarding what was banned lacked “clarity.” For example, the phrase “living fetus,” was “hopelessly vague as a legal proscription.”
Have the PP officials featured in the CMP video helped Ms. Lynch gain “clarity” on what constitutes a “living fetus?” Will she reconsider her position on partial-birth abortions now that the videos reveal Planned Parenthood has as much regard for human life as Jeffrey Dahmer?
Not likely, according to Politico, the DOJ is set to probe the CMP videographers, not the Planned Parenthood doctors parceling out the hearts, lungs and livers of babies in the womb.
While congressional committees investigate Planned Parenthood’s practices, the Justice Department agreed to look into whether the group that released the sting videos obtained the footage legally.
Planned Parenthood has staunchly defended its practices and claims that the Center for Medical Progress illegally obtained its footage, then excessively edited it to misrepresent what the organization does.
Planned Parenthood knows the Obama administration and his media whores have their backs. Obama has blessed their “practices.”
For AG Lynch, PP doctors describing how to carve up a human being before he or she is dead and then sell the parts is a big yawn. On the other hand, she can’t wait to kill the messengers at CMP.
