ED LINKED THIS OVER THE WEEKEND, BUT THIS BIT FROM CHRISTIAN ADAMS’ PIECE ON THE DOJ SWAMP IS WORTH BREAKING OUT:

Justice is no longer blind. Investigations, charges, and even prison terms depend on the ideological views of the targets.

If you are a friend of the President, the Justice Department “career lawyers” will do all they can to find venue in the District of Columbia where they know a rabid population of Democrat jurors will do all they can to send you to Big Sandy.

If you doubt me, you haven’t heard of Tomeka Hart, the nasty partisan jury foreman in Stone’s trial who should have never been on the jury in the first place.

The Scales of Justice come in two versions, one for Democrats and one for Trump.

Let’s examine those Justice Department “career lawyers.”

It is now plain that “career lawyer” isn’t a euphemism for unbiased and impartial. It’s exactly the opposite. It usually means Democrat, leftist, elitist, culturally hostile to middle America and feverishly anti-Trump.

The DOJ’s behavior is an argument for ending the civil service system and returning to something more like the “spoils system.” The notion of a nonpartisan career civil service isn’t just a mirage, it’s a self-serving lie.
