Posted March 29, 2018 09:18:52When I first began researching the DC government’s corruption scandals in the fall of 2018, I found the DC Department of Justice (DOJ) to be a particularly concerning entity for me.
The DOJ was the first federal law enforcement agency to target an organization called the DCCC, which was a major lobbying firm and political action committee for the Democratic Party.
In late 2018, the DOJ launched an investigation into DCCC lobbyist Beth Karpinski, who worked as the communications director for the DCC for several years.
The investigation was spearheaded by the DOJ’s Office of the Inspector General (OIG).
The DOJ investigation into Karpinks investigation into the DDC was conducted by the Office of Professional Responsibility (OPA), a division of the DOJ that is charged with investigating the agency’s own investigations of misconduct by federal employees.
The OIG was the lead agency on the DOJ investigation of the DC government’s misuse of taxpayer dollars for political purposes.
However, the OIG’s investigation of Karpinskis actions is being handled by the National Security Division (NSD), which was created by the Trump administration to oversee and oversee the activities of the National Geospatial-Intelligence Agency (NGA).
Since the inception of the NSD, the agency has received significant funding from the Department of Defense, the National Science Foundation, and the National Institutes of Health (NIH).
The NSD’s mission is to conduct and oversee intelligence and cyber investigations, and is charged by the Secretary of Defense with conducting such investigations.
When I started researching this story, the NSR’s office was focused primarily on the DCR’s use of taxpayer funds for political campaigns.
However in the months since, the focus has shifted to the DCD’s use on behalf of the Trump Administration to promote and defend the Trump agenda and to influence policy decisions in Washington.
While the NSDS’ Office of Inspector General is not the agency charged with conducting the DOJ IG investigation of Beth KARPinks corruption, the Office is an important element in the DOJ probe into the DC’s DCCC-funded campaign.
In early 2019, the DRC announced that it would hire a private firm, Caputo Law Group, to investigate the DCDC for potential misconduct and to report back to the Office within the following months.
In July 2020, the NGA announced that they would conduct a review of the NSPA and the DNC for potential ethical violations and will present its findings to the NSC in December 2020.
Caputo hired a private attorney to represent them, and after two weeks of negotiations with the DOJ, the firm submitted its report to the DOJ in late January 2020.
On March 2, the DC Attorney General announced that the DC Government had decided to fire Caputo.
In an interview with the Washington Examiner, Caputos Chief of Staff, Robert J. Tilton, said that “the DOJ’s investigation was the result of Caputo’s efforts to gain access to sensitive government records and documents.”
Caputo also hired former White House counsel Neil Eggleston to assist them with their probe.
Caputors investigation into Beth KARPS corruption and the DOJ-led probe into her hiring by the DCA was the subject of a scathing article in the Washington Post.
According to the article, the investigation into whether the DAC used taxpayer dollars to promote a Trump agenda was spearheaded and supervised by the OIP, the division of OIG.
Caputiros probe into Beths actions was conducted in partnership with the NSE, a division that oversees the Office for National Security.
NSE Director, David N. Loomis, told the Washington Business Journal that “a lot of what Caputo was trying to do was investigate the [DDC’s] use of money to influence government policy.”
Caputios investigation into this particular corruption scandal was undertaken by the NSP, which is an Office of Special Counsel (OSC) that oversees and reviews OIG investigations.
The NSP is also responsible for the investigation of other corruption scandals at the DDA, such as the firing of two former attorneys general (AGs) in 2017, and former Attorney General Sally Yates’ resignation in 2018.
The Trump administration has also reportedly paid the NSA to conduct an independent investigation into how the DDO improperly used taxpayer funds.
The Washington Post’s article, however, did not disclose whether the Trump DOJ-funded probe into DC’s misuse for political gain was part of the investigation by the DC AG.
In the weeks following the publication of the Washington Times article, DC AG Andy Beshear announced that he was launching an independent review of Caputores investigation into DC corruption.
According the Washington City Paper, Beshears team will include “three outside law firms” that “will seek to conduct independent reviews of the Office’s investigation.”
The investigation will “look into whether, and to what extent, Caputi roamed the city’s streets to curry favor with
