Indeed, a fitting end.
Sadly, when his records are finally unsealed, 12 years from now, we will just begin to understand what a criminal organization Obama ran.
Obama’s Justice Department was more of a criminal arm of Obama’s cartel than anything to do with justice.
When possible, justice was blocked to suit the whims of the administration.
With Eric “The Gun Runner,” Holder followed by the yet to be charged criminal, Loretta Lynch, there was little justice to be found during both Obama’s terms. (Source)
“Acting US Attorney General Sally Yates, a Obama appointee, ordered the Department of Justice not to defend President Trump’s executive order on immigration.
I couldn’t think of a more fitting capstone to the Obama record on Justice than its carrying on about President Trump’s immigration order.
The legal arguments weigh strongly in favor of the administration, and the Justice Department has a legal obligation to defend it.
It can only refuse if there are no reasonable grounds on which to defend or the Justice Department has come to the conclusion that the law is unconstitutional, which it could only do it if disregarded existing statutes and case law.
Once again the Obama Justice Department has put its left-wing politics before its legal duties.
On the other hand, this is meaningless grandstanding.
Attorney General Sessions will be confirmed soon, and on day one he will direct DOJ attorneys to defend the order.
