  •  Right you are: a U.S. Attorney's office. (0+ / 0-)

    We're still talking about a self-directed, independent law enforcement agency. Some of of the DoJ, such as the Attorney General's office and Solicitor General's office, is very much wired into the White House, while other parts pretty much do their own thing.

    United States Attorneys are pretty far on the independent end of the spectrum. That broke down during the Bush administration - the Yglesias firing, Monica Goodling - but things seem to have gotten more or less back to normal since he left office.

    Art is the handmaid of human good.

      Obama chose Holder. he stood by holder through all his fuckups.

      Obama approved a whole shitload of people in the DOJ, including Lanny Breuer who was heading up these bullshit Espionage Act prosecutions against whistleblowers, which, by the way, were a direct attack on the First Amendment rights of a Free Press that we are supposed to have because we arent supposed to be living in some shit hole 3rd word toilet where the fucking goddamn government has it's arm up everyones ass to the fucking elbow with a goddamn rubber glove made in some shit hole prison labor factory where people get payed 2 cents an hour. its fucking bullshit. this whole fucking thing is bullshit.

        comfortable (and adept) than I am in using profanity, you wrote what I'm thinking.  

        Someone up yonder in this thread has a signature line stating "Repeal the Second Amendment."  To get in line with this administration's policies, he probably should add the First and Fourth to his repeal wish list, as well.

        A wise man hears one word and understands two.
