Joe Doakes from Como Park emails:
The Justice Department is part of the Executive Branch. They work for the President.
In theory, the Justice Department ought to be non-political. But as these articles note, the career bureaucrats have their own agenda and they resent their bosses telling them what to do. The comments by former Obama administration officials make it clear that they believe they are not accountable to the President. They’re not accountable to anybody.
The notion of unaccountable bureaucrats pursuing their own agenda is anti-American. There is no authority for it in the Constitution, legislation or case-law. It usurps lawful authority. It’s a form of coup, undermining the rightful government. They are the swamp Trump promised to drain.
Take a lesson from Ronaldus Magnus. Fire them all.
I’m becoming more convinced every day that Federal Law Enforcement is the “standing army” that the founding fathers were worried about, but couldn’t have possibly conceived of.
