  •  the innuendo is when the diarist (0+ / 0-)

    implies that because the newly hired defense lawyer knows and is friends with holder, somehow justice will not be served.

    first of all, holder does not prosecute cases.  secondly, many top lawyers know each other and are friends.  they don't take their cases "personally" - they defend the law (or the client USING the law).

    i think that on this site, folks are too quick to disparage a group of people they don't like - without using their heads.

    to quote meteor blades, we need a "think" button around here!

    It's the Supreme Court, Stoopid!

      when it comes to conflicts of interest.

      There was no innuendo, there was simply a fact stated.  Holder should consider removing himself from overseeing any investigations into allegations against Goldman Sachs to the extent he has had any prior dealings with the lawyers GS and its execs have employed..
