For years, the FBI has been one of Trump’s biggest enemies.
But with William Barr now leading the Justice Department, things are turning around.
And what the FBI just did will destroy a top Trump enemy’s life.
Unions consistently have been one of the biggest enemies for President Trump.
They give millions of dollars to Democrats every year, and viciously attack Republican politicians using their fat pockets.
And one of the most vicious of these unions is the United Auto Workers (UAW).
In fact, the UAW gave millions of dollars to exclusively support Democrats during the 2016 election.
And now they are under a microscope in an investigation led by the FBI and IRS in relation to corruption.
The investigation alleges that the auto industry has been using shady tactics to influence union negotiations.
Already, eight people have pleaded guilty for enriching themselves through kickbacks from union vendors.
The most recent development in the probe came two weeks ago when a former UAW official was charged.
And just this week the FBI raided UAW President Gary Jones’ home to carry out a search warrant.
The UAW responded to it, alleging that the FBI went too far.
“The UAW and President Gary Jones have always fully cooperated with the government investigators in this matter,” the UAW said in a statement. “As the leader of the UAW, President Jones is determined to uncover and address any and all wrongdoing, wherever it might lead.”
They also blasted the use of the search warrant, claiming that the UAW has been voluntarily working with authorities already.
“There was absolutely no need for search warrants to be used by the government today — the UAW has voluntarily responded to every request the government has made throughout the course of its investigation, produced literally hundreds of thousands of documents and other materials to the government, and most importantly, when wrongdoing has been discovered, we have taken strong action to address it.”
Overall, unions have been having a very hard time since the election of President Donald Trump.
Trump was a major enemy right off the bat for them due to his support for Right to Work, which bans the practice of forcing individuals to pay dues to a union as a condition of employment.
Along with that, a 5-4 Supreme Court decision in 2018 bans unions from forcing government workers to pay dues to stay employed.
This is a big hit not only to labor unions, but to the Democrat Party.
Unions spend many millions of dollars to support Democrat politicians.
It is essentially a racket.
Unions use their ability to force workers to pay them money in a highly unethical fashion.
And to keep it legal they give money to Democrats who will fight to protect the practice.
So these allegations of corruption are very bad news for them.
Many states don’t allow unions to force employees to pay dues.
So following these allegations, many will likely leave their union.
Do you think that labor unions should be able to force employees to pay dues?
