Attorney General Jeff Sessions just gave liberals across the U.S. the worst surprise. He triggered many tender snowflakes with the long-awaited announcement regarding federal funding.

Sessions stated that the DOJ will no longer fund liberal groups. The new policy announced on Wednesday prohibits payouts to third parties in settlements reached by the Justice Department.

All U.S. attorneys and Justice Department leaders received a memorandum with the details of the announcement.

For decades, through a variety of initiatives, the DOJ has insisted on donations to third parties as part of the settlements it reaches with defendants, especially corporations. During Obama’s presidency, this practice became a so-called “slush fund,” which funneled hundreds of millions of dollars from these corporate defendants and put it into the hands of non-government organizations.

There were many recipients of this funding, including left-wing “community organizer” groups such as the National Council of La Raza, or “The Race,” a Latino racial advocacy group that supports mass illegal immigration, reports UConservative. The National Urban League and the National Community Reinvestment Coalition were also among the recipients, as well as NeighborWorks America, which is a congressionally chartered mortgage aid group that has come under widespread criticism.

“Effective immediately,” Sessions wrote, “Department attorneys may not enter into any agreement on behalf of the United States in settlement of federal claims or charges … that directs or provides for a payment or loan to any non-governmental person or entity that is not a party to the dispute.”

Previously, the House Judiciary Committee passed a bill co-sponsored by Trey Gowdy to stop an Obama “slush find” policy.

“The House Judiciary Committee’s passage of a bill to stop an Obama-era slush fund policy is nothing less than Congress taking back its constitutional powers lost over the last eight years,” Gowdy said of the bill.
