    The latter tend to have friends. And better lawyers.

      the trust part goes out the window pretty fast.

      Otoh, when colluders are in positions of trust (and of real power) everything is up for grabs, including democracy itself.  

      Let the State AGs put the Obama DOJ to shame.  It will round out their legacy nicely.  

      This is cusp time, I think.
