It’s about time.
For years, we’ve known that while Planned Parenthood’s (PP) most heinous act, abortion, is not “illegal”… the organization was still bending and breaking many other laws in an effort to maximize their blood money.
While much of the abortion giant’s terrible work is subsidized by you, the taxpayer, the abortion mill also works hard to find other avenues to make money.
In fact, the Center for Medical Progress (CMP) was even able to gather the evidence of malfeasance on video.
CMP’s executive director David Daleiden explained, “Over two years ago, citizen journalists at The Center for Medical Progress first caught Planned Parenthood’s top abortion doctors in a series of undercover videos callously and flippantly negotiating the sale of tiny baby hearts, lungs, livers, and brains. It is time for public officials to finally hold Planned Parenthood and their criminal abortion enterprise accountable under the law.”
The Justice Department has now gathered enough evidence to begin a criminal investigation into Planned Parenthood’s many illicit behaviors, and one can only hope that this will be the death knell for the abortion giant.
In a letter first obtained by Fox News, Justice Department Assistant Attorney General for Legislative Affairs Stephen Boyd formally requested unredacted documents from the Senate Judiciary Committee, the same panel that led the congressional probe into the women’s health organization.
“The Department of Justice appreciates the offer of assistance in obtaining these materials, and would like to request the Committee provide unredacted copies of records contained in the report, in order to further the Department’s ability to conduct a thorough and comprehensive assessment of that report based on the full range of information available,” Boyd wrote…
The letter, sent to Grassley and Feinstein on Thursday, is a rare confirmation by the Justice Department of a federal investigation.
“At this point, the records are intended for investigative use only—we understand that a resolution from the Senate may be required if the Department were to use any of the unredacted materials in a formal legal proceeding, such as a grand jury,” Boyd also wrote.
