Top Biden Official Found in Violation of Federal Law in Effort to Promote Democrat Agenda

New findings have revealed that a top Biden administration official broke federal law by using her position to promote Democrats.

Biden’s Energy Secretary and former Michigan Democrat Governor Jennifer Granholm violated the Hatch Act during an October 2021 interview where she used her office to promote Democratic candidates.

The violation was revealed after watchdog group Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust (FACT) requested that the U.S. Office of Special Counsel (OSC) investigate comments Granholm made to media outlet Marie Clare on October 6, 2021.

During the interview, Granholm said it was “good news … voting gave Democrats a bare majority (in Congress),” before attempting to clarify by stating she was “using Democrats as a substitute for the policies that you believe in, the policies that you would like to see happen,” the Detroit Free Press reported.

Following its investigation, the OSC reached the determination that Granholm’s comments crossed the line as they were directed at the success of the Democratic Party.”

 

Per usual, the Democrat will face no consequences for breaking the law as the special counsel decided not to pursue disciplinary action and instead simply give her a warning, writing that she had not received “significant” training on the Hatch Act before making those comments.

Granholm was sworn in as energy secretary in late February 2021, more than seven months prior to making the comments about Democratic candidates.

Secretary Granholm has been advised that if in the future she engages in prohibited political activity while employed in a position covered by the Hatch Act, we will consider such activity to be a willful and knowing violation of the law, the OSC letter sent to FACT on June 9 said.

The Hatch Act was designed to prohibit federal government employees from engaging in “activity directed at the success or failure of a political party, candidate for partisan political office, or partisan political group – while the employee is on duty, in any federal room or building, while wearing a uniform or official insignia, or using any federally owned or leased vehicle.”

A Department of Energy spokesperson confirmed that Granholm had received a warning from the OSC.

Secretary Granholm takes her ethics obligations seriously,” the spokesperson claimed, according to Fox News. “And, she remains laser focused on delivering President Biden’s equitable clean energy agenda which will help lower energy costs for American families and enhance our nation’s security.”

However, this is not the first time Granholm has broken the law while serving as energy secretary. In 2021, she broke the STOCK Act — a law that requires top federal officials to disclose their asset transactions within a 45-day window — at least 9 times.

The dates of Granholm’s stock sales ranged from April to late October, according to federal disclosure documents first reported by Business Insider. But Granholm did not disclose any of them until mid-December, which was in some cases a full 6 months after the deadline to report the sale had passed…

  1. All my life I have been told in school, “ignorance of the law is no excuse”. Over and over again (taught by liberal teachers by the way), this was taught (preached). We, the peons of society must comply. Oh, but not the lawmakers? THAT IS NOT RIGHT!!!! I am getting sick and fed up with this perverted self righteous Democratic hypocrisy that has permeated our current society. DC is not a swamp but rather an entire ocean of S H I T.

  2. How about stop posting this here! People are getting very anxious to start a fight! If DOJ is not going to do the job by the book! It now TYRANNY!

  3. There will be NO punishment for her. WHY??? Because she is a DEMONCRAT. According to them thay can do no wrong. As long as they cheat and do NOT follow the law, they can get by with it. That I S THE DEMONCRATS WAY.

  4. Perhaps all Presidents reward personnel who were big assets during pre-elections, but until Obama was elected, not many key cabinet members were appointed in key Governmental posts. Obama started hiring people who helped invest tons of currency to pay for his election, some of them being outright corrupted asskissers, then with quite a few being gfiven very sensitive positions . Along comes Biden and scrapes the bottom of corruption to come up with many top key Government officials whose performance has been absolutely unsatisfactory. Look at the USA overall. What do you see? Corruption, outright thievery, sexual illegalities, dramatically increased crime (to include murder), commmunists teaching kids from age 3 to end of collage/university students how to rebel against our form of Government, and to dissipate whatever they can.
    A legitimate reveiw of wealth records (stocks, bonds, cash on hand and in banks) of each of Biden’s appointed staff would reveal that corruption within members on Federal payrolls grows tremendously whenever a damned Democrat is elected as President. A great percentage of Biden’s appointed officials have no idea of whaty they should be doing to earn their pay. But, name all of those you believe are honest and doing an honest day’s work – you probably can’t count more than two or three. Look at the Department of Defense: Not any of the top military leaders sare worth a damn. As a retired Air Force pilot, I sure as hell would not want to risk my life again to fight a war for no reason. World War II simply enabled certain businesses to make millions manufacturing war goods. The same occurred in Korea in the 1950s, Vietnam in the 1960-1973s, and every war and/or contingencies in which we, the USA, became involved. Waste: take a look at what was left in Afghanistan after Biden screwed up so badly insisting on an immediate pullout. How m,any American citizens still remain in Afghanistan and are unable to get out of the country. I was raised by a Patriotic Family, and I carried on the family tradition serving in combat in Korea and Vietnam. I was proud of the 532 men who fought with me as their commander or better yet, as their leader. We were, and still are, a family – for those who are still alive. We, and millions of others fought to keep the USA free and contented. We did not fight so that some politicians can increase their wealth ten-fold without even picking up a pen to sign their name. Our society today grooms people to become dishonest and corrupt, then become politicians. Most of the old bastards who have been in Congress or the House for more than ten years are now wealthy and should retire and make way for younger, and perhaps less greedy and corrupt “workers for the people.” Your thoughts?

    1. First, thank you for serving our country and for being a true patriot.

      Your comment is spot on. Come November, we must regain the government and reel in these anti-American liberal Democrats. This country is in serious need of a shake-up!

    2. MY PRAYERS TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY FOR YOUR SERVICE AND DEVOTION TO THE AMERICA WE BOTH GREW UP KNOWING SURLY NOT THE CURRENT AMERICA WE SEE!! ALL OF WHAT YOU STATED I SAY “ YES”. !!!!

  5. Isn’t that dandy! The article states, “The Democrat will face no consequences for breaking the law as the special counsel decided not to pursue disciplinary action and instead simply give her a warning, writing that she had not received ‘significant training’ on the Hatch Act before making those comments.”
    I guess mass-shooters should be let off the hook if they didn’t receive significant training on firearm safety? What kind of logic is that? Oh, right… it’s the Biden Administration… no logic at all.

  6. Another POS SCUMBAG, CRIMINAL Demonrat got off the hook again. No doubt that would NOT be the story if it were a Conservative. The two tier justice system is worse than Mexico’s. Another slap in the face to the American Justice system by another Liberal excrement.
