    I don't think the strategy(?) of a citizen's grand jury works any better after being taken out of the title, but maybe it can be salvaged.

    I'm not sure why you're citing Rakoff: I don't see any hint in the article that he thinks anyone at DOJ is guilty of corruption. He even says:

    At the outset, however, let me say that I completely discount the argument sometimes made that no such prosecutions have been brought because the top prosecutors were often people who previously represented the financial institutions in question and/or were people who expected to be representing such institutions in the future: the so-called “revolving door.”
    (And he elaborates.) If one can trust his stated judgment, going after DOJ for "conflict of interest" probably isn't the best way to go after the failure to prosecute. Of course you aren't bound to defer to Rakoff just because you quoted him, but I was stuck by the omission of context.
