Biden’s Backroom Deals with the DOJ and DNC

Looks like this political theater took another twist.

The Biden administration, the Department of Justice, and the DNC have been revealed to be real close friends.

The latest character in the spotlight, Matthew Colangelo, a former Biden DOJ member that’s now taking shots at Trump in court.

Well, it turns out Colangelo took big bucks from the DNC for “political consulting” back in 2018. Coincidence?

Doubtful. Looks like the lines between justice and politics just got blurrier.

Surprised? Anyone surprised at all?

Red State reports:

With each passing day, it becomes more and more apparent that there is an incestuous relationship between the Biden administration, the Department of Justice, and the Democratic National Committee (DNC). Now we see that a former Biden administration DOJ, currently one of the attorneys prosecuting former President Donald Trump in his New York fraud trial, accepted thousands from the DNC for “political consulting.”

The Democratic National Committee paid Trump prosecutor Matthew Colangelo thousands of dollars for “political consulting” in 2018, Fox News Digital has learned.

Colangelo delivered opening statements in the unprecedented criminal trial of former President Trump and currently serves as a top prosecutor with Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s Office on the case.

Colangelo joined Bragg’s office in December 2022 after the resignations of Mark Pomerantz and Carey Dunne — prosecutors who were investigating Trump and resigned in protest of Bragg’s initial unwillingness to indict the former president. Colangelo left a senior role at the Biden Justice Department to join Bragg’s team. Bragg afterward brought charges against the former president in April 2023, raising questions among some in the GOP about alleged politicization of the case.

There’s an interesting timeline here; the payments came in 2018, Colangelo began work at the Justice Department as an acting associate attorney general in 2021, and then resigned from the DOJ and took a position in New York working for DA Alvin Bragg in December of 2022.

According to Federal Election Commission records reviewed by Fox News Digital, DNC Services Corp/Democratic National Committee paid Colangelo twice on Jan. 31, 2018. Colangelo was given two payments of $6,000, for a total of $12,000.

The “description” for the purpose of payment is labeled “Political Consulting.”

Granted $12,000 isn’t a huge amount in this game, but it’s still significant.

This begs at least one question: What was Matthew Colangelo being paid to do, precisely? “Political consulting” could cover an awfully lot of ground. When the DNC was paying him for whatever he did, he was working as a “deputy attorney general for social justice,” which sure sounds like a patronage gig. What possible value could Colangelo have returned to the DNC that was worth $12,000 to them?
