A government watchdog group is now saying that Barack Obama’s Department of Justice went out of its way to make sure U.S. military veterans would be excluded from being qualified to to fill its job openings.
The U.S. Office of Special Counsel has found that Obama’s DOJ worked overtime to make sure military vets would be excluded from job openings despite the fact that a federal law gives veterans preferential consideration for such openings, The Washington Times reported.
The incident involved veterans applying for positions with the International Criminal Investigative Training Assistance Program.
The investigation revealed the DOJ scheduled off-site meetings to try and force candidates with a military background to drop out of the running for the openings in question. Worse, when the military vets refused to drop out, the DOJ canceled the job opening, then DOJ rewrote the requirements to prevent military applicants.
