    Such conduct is certainly not worthy of any department whose name includes the word ‘Justice,News Precise

  • Sidney Powell

    These government lawyers should be barred from practicing in his court. Judge Hanen could invoke that sanction and send a more powerful message to Ms. Lynch. For more true stories of similar and yet more egregious miscinduct, read Licensed to Lie: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice --an Amazon 5star bestseller that reads like John Grisham but is true and names names.

    LOL! Couldn‘t happen to a better DOJ. Maybe Holder‘s - and now Lynch‘s - time would have been better spent prosecuting Michael Brown‘s stepfather for inciting to riot and commit arson two Novembers in Ferguson, MO after all.And at the top of the rot, our "constitutional law professor" now occupying the WH. Thanks for wasting more of the taxpayers‘ money, Hussein!
