Another big setback for Trump’s Justice Department

Gotta love the few remaining educated, intelligent conservatives. Jennifer Rubin more than makes up for a million moronic Whells.

https://www.washingtonpost.com/blogs...ce-department/

Before this president arrived, it has always been an honor to work in the Justice Department; the department has attracted the best and the brightest, those dedicated to public service. Courts expect and to an extent have presumed that Justice Department lawyers conduct themselves honorably and with an eye not simply toward winning, but with the aim of achieving justice. That is rapidly changing.

In July 2017, former acting attorney general Sally Yates wrote, ” The Justice Department is not just another federal agency. It is charged with fulfilling our country’s promise of equal and impartial justice for all. As an agency with the authority to deprive citizens of their liberty, its investigations and prosecutions must be conducted free from any political interference or influence, and decisions must be made based solely on the facts and the law.” She explained that independence from the White House on specific matters “is essential for the career men and women to be able to do their jobs. I served in the Justice Department for over 27 years, the vast majority as a career prosecutor in both Democratic and Republican administrations. I know from firsthand experience how seriously the career prosecutors and agents take their responsibility to make fair and impartial decisions based solely on the facts and the law and nothing else.”

In short, attorneys who could be making a lot more money in private practice don’t go work at the Justice Department to make lousy, losing arguments and jump when the president barks commands. No wonder the administration cannot fill top jobs (e.g. the No. 3 spot). Now it is a question as to whether the department will experience the same exodus of career employees as the State Department did. (The Justice Department has already lost McElvain, a highly acclaimed attorney who has been honored by the department in the past.) If so, the department will be one more victim in the Trumpian effort to destroy competent, corrupt-free governance. The rule of law that protects all Americans from capricious government officials will have suffered another setback.

Donald Trump shrugs off Kim's human rights record: 'He's a tough guy'

As Fox News host presses Trump over North Korean regime, president is dismissive: ‘A lot of people have done bad things’

Trump cares nothing for human rights, to the contrary he admires 'toughness.'

He telling them - MSM - that they have made a lot of adjustment for Saudi Arabia and Israel and that there are the FSB, Mossad, CIA, MI5/MI6 etc which operate, do bad things, on behalf of smiling leaders.

In other words his approach is amoral.

It seems his charitable foundation is about as legitimate as Trump University.

Looks like New York's new AG Underwood isn't letting any moss grow under her feet. Good! More power to her!

I like how she's applying the 10 year ban on Trump owning/operating a charity, it's usually reserved for penny ante grifters.
