Overly Politicized And Biased DOJ Now Super Worried About Their Reputation Under Trump

Here’s the NY Times digging for Controversy in the Age Of Trump

Fearful of Trump’s Attacks, Justice Dept. Lawyers Worry Barr Will Leave Them Exposed

In an email a few days ago to the 270 lawyers he oversees, Nicola T. Hanna, the United States attorney in Los Angeles, offered a message of reassurance: I am proud of the work you do, he wrote.

Other U.S. attorneys in the Justice Department’s far-flung 93 field offices relayed similar messages of encouragement after President Trump’s efforts to influence a politically fraught case provoked the kind of consternation the department has rarely seen since the Watergate era. “All I have to say,” another United States attorney wrote to his staff, “is keep doing the right things for the right reasons.”

But the fact that the department’s 10,000-odd lawyers needed reassurances seemed like cause for worry all by itself.

In more than three dozen interviews in recent days, lawyers across the federal government’s legal establishment wondered aloud whether Mr. Trump was undermining the Justice Department’s treasured reputation for upholding the law without favor or political bias — and whether Attorney General William P. Barr was able or willing to protect it.

Well, that’s interesting. First, it seems more like they meant to share this with the media, rather than being anything internal, so, right there that is political. Second, the entire story is meant to be a hit-job on Trump and Barr, with not one current DOJ employee needing reassurance named. Do they exist? It’s all anonymous, which is par for the course.

Third, what of when the Attorney General attempted to meet secretly with the husband of an investigation target on a tarmac? The media made excuses for that, and we didn’t get any articles about DOJ employees being concerned. Nor about when the DOJ, including the Director of the FBI, ignored actual federal laws, serious felonies, when they declined to charge Hillary Clinton, nor even put the fruits of the investigation in front of a federal grand jury. Which would have happened had you or I done half of what she did.

How about spying on reporters? Operation Fast and Furious? Blowing off the prosecution of the New Black Panthers thugs blocking a voting office with clubs. AG Eric Holder being Obama’s “wingman.” The entire department was politicized, and you had employees working to actively defeat Donald Trump. Perhaps the folks from high to low in, specifically, the DOJ itself and the FBI should have been worried about what was going on during 8 years of Obama using it.

  1. Elwood P. Dowd says:

    Should tRump fire all 10,000 of them and replace them with loyal, conservative lawyers?

    After all, this was quite an act of disloyalty to Dear Leader. And those horrible supervisors encouraged disloyalty by telling their charges, “All I have to say,” another United States attorney wrote to his staff, “is keep doing the right things for the right reasons.”

    No doubt tRump sees “…doing the right things for the right reasons” as a direct insult, bordering on insurrection.


    Does he think the DOJ, the AG, and the FBI owe their allegiance to the president, and not the nation?

    • Jl says:

      J conveniently forgets Clinton firing 93 US attorneys upon taking office on in 1993. Did he think they owe their allegiance to the president, and not the nation?

      • Elwood P. Dowd says:

        J conveniently forgets that most incoming administrations replace many if not all the US Attorneys heading the 94 districts. Reagan, Clinton, Bush, Obama, Trump.

        This issue concerns the 10,000 or so attorneys who do the work in the 94 districts and report to the 93 US Attorneys. The federal attorneys appear concerned about the reputation of the DOJ and the work they do.

        Let’s hope tRump doesn’t go on a rampage because a US Attorney told his charges to keep “… doing the right things for the right reasons” and not bow to political pressures.

      Your party is a dumpster fire.

      As for The swamp we know you love you some goverment swamp critters. Poor Lawyers QUIT cause they got their feelings hurt. Seriously??????? Really if your boss came to you and said, no were not doing it that way would you quit?

      If you would then your a snowflake leftist with the skin of a paper tiger.

      Bosses tell their underlings all the time Nope not gonna do it that way. This was orchestrated. Everyone of these lawyers already hava their pension and will get massive deals from Soros or Bloomberg or any one of a 1000 leftist organizations.

      LOOLLOOOLOLOLLLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOL….at the dumpster fire that is the Democratic party.

      You are so desperate to rag on Trump you still have no clue that the right and independents see this as a good thing. And apparently so does the independent. One only has to look at the number of democrats now showing up at Trump rallies and realize the movement is bigger than Trump and the GOP. Its the BIG TENT the GOP talked about for decades but were too afraid to try and make work because they owed their fealty to Wall street.

      Impeach him or Barr one more time and watch a 45 state landslide. Go on. I dare you!!!!!!!!!!!

      Why not?

      Democrats do it all the time.

    • Kye says:

      After 50 years of every law school in the country inundated with leftist, socialist, communist and other assorted Red pigs, here would we find 10,000 loyal conservative lawyers? That would require finding 10,000 lawyers who value America and patriotism over the state and the party. Not likely.

      When disloyal commie deep state supervisors say “do the right thing for the right reason” that is code for “fuk Trump and his people because Orange Man Bad”. You know it, we know it and they know it so stop acting all innocent and blind. Saying a line like that to a leftist is the same as Ralph Northam saying “I just want to stop crime”. It’s a fukin’ trap.

      Trump 2020 Don’t fall for the left’s lies and hate.
