• Justice Department employees overwhelmingly contribute to Democrats, a trend that has become even more lopsided since Barack Obama’s presidential inauguration, according to a campaign finance research organization.
  • In the 2016 election cycle, Justice employees gave $438,077 to Hillary Clinton’s Democratic presidential campaign, nearly 20 times the $23,874 they gave to Republican Donald Trump, according to OpenSecrets.org, an arm of the Center for Responsive Politics that crunched the numbers based on Federal Election Commission reports.
  • The Justice Department currently has 113,000 employees and the campaign-donation numbers show the department’s employees have grown more partisan Democratic in recent years.
  • During the Obama years, the share of Justice workers’ money going to Democrats shot up from 63% in 2010 to 87% in 2016. 
  • It’s not just the DOJ’s employees
  • U.S. attorneys offices, or the Justice Department’s local prosecutors, also gave far more to Democrats in 2016, OpenSecrets.org reported — $68,387 to $12,615.
  • The American Federation of Government Employees, a union representing 670,000 employees, gives over 90% of its campaign cash to Democrats.
