Why didn’t the Justice Dept indict Kobach as well as Bannon?

The wire transfers of $250,000 and $100,000 that Steve Bannon and Brian Kolfage were indicted for would have to be approved by the We Build the Wall foundation’s general counsel — Kris Kobach. The payments were in direct violation of the foundation’s by-laws. Furthermore, Kobach used the non-profit’s donor list to raise money for his Senate run, normally a felony crime.

Palast Scores Victory in Lawsuit Against Brian Kemp

The 2018 Gubernatorial election in Georgia became ground-zero for Republican-led vote suppression when then Secretary of State Brian Kemp ran against Democrat Stacey Abrams. As State Secretary, Kemp had unique access to the state’s voting systems in the same election in which he ran for higher office. Now, a lawsuit filed by investigative reporter Greg Palast
