A lot of noise about not a lot: US attorneys
Many pearls have been abused over
The Trump administration acted abruptly Friday to force out the remaining U.S. attorneys who had not already stepped down.
"On the issue of Clinton [U.S. attorneys], we called each one and had them give us a timeframe. Most were gone by late April. In contrast, Clinton [Justice Department] told all but a dozen in early March to be gone immediately," McNulty said.
The difference appears minor. Both McNulty and Sampson acknowledged that the Bush administration, like the Clinton administration, brought in a new slate of U.S. attorneys within a few months of taking office.
But historical data compiled by the Senate show the pattern going back to President Reagan.
Reagan replaced 89 of the 93 U.S. attorneys in his first two years in office. President Clinton had 89 new U.S. attorneys in his first two years, and President Bush had 88 new U.S. attorneys in his first two years.
In a similar vein, the Justice Department recently supplied Congress with a district-by-district listing of U.S. attorneys who served prior to the Bush administration.
The list shows that in 1981, Reagan's first year in office, 71 of 93 districts had new U.S. attorneys. In 1993, Clinton's first year, 80 of 93 districts had new U.S. attorneys.
In my opinion if you find one scandalous, you find all of them scandalous.
The politicization of the judiciary is scandalous in itself, but has received wide bipartisan support for a very long time. SCOTUS being more political than constitutional doesn't seem to worry many at all.
All that the winning of the US Presidential election seems to mean to the party faithful is that now one of "theirs" can be appointed for life and for the good of the party. It wasn't Hillary that mattered, it was the empty seat on SCOTUS that was primordial.
I am really having trouble in understanding what motivates these people, I must have broken my party politically tinted glasses at some point.
