Hillary Clinton raked in nearly $75,000 in political contributions from employees of the Justice Department, which will ultimately decide whether to pursue charges against the presidential candidate for using a private e-mail server, the Washington Free Beacon reports.

The donations exceed those given to rivals Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump.

Clinton received $73,437 from 228 Justice Department employees. Twelve employees donated the maximum $2,700.

Clinton collected less money from Justice Department employees when she ran for president in 2008. She received 23 contributions totaling $15,930.

Dave Bossie, president of the watchdog group Citizens United, said he’s not shocked but he donations this year.

“I’m not surprised in the least to see more evidence that shows the politicization of the Justice Department,” Bossie said in a statement to the Free Beacon. “How can Democrat political appointees fairly investigate someone who is about to become their nominee for president? That’s why last July I called on Attorney General Lynch to appoint an impartial special counsel to investigate the private Clinton email server.”

Another spin headline. “Nearly” makes this seem like a lot of money, which it may not be. This is why everyone hates the media.

It would be equally accurate to say, “Hillary Clinton Only Received $75,000 in Donations from Justice Department Employees”

Are you implying bias on the Justice Department?

Alternatively, “Federal Employees Who Know her Best, Support Clinton”

“Clinton Support Increases after to Work with Her”
