A former Justice Department attorney does not expect the federal agency to indict the swamp.
Joe Biden's alleged involvement in the firing of a Ukrainian prosecutor who was investigating his son has spurred calls from Republicans and conservatives for the Justice Department to launch a full-scale investigation. And Trump's supporters continue to be frustrated about why no indictments have been filed against the Justice Department and FBI officials involved in the attempts to undermine the president and overturn the results of the 2016 election.
J. Christian Adams, a former Justice Department attorney who now serves as general counsel of the Public Interest Legal Foundation, does not think that can be expected.
"The Justice Department is not going to be indicting the swamp," he asserts. "I said that about Hillary. I said that going back years every time I'm asked, that nothing is going to happen. And I try to explain how the department is its own creature that is biased and beyond the ability of an administration to control, generally speaking. They can do some things on the edges, but it is still a rock-solid bastion of Democratic thinking."
So Adams reluctantly admits that there is indeed a two-tiered justice system -- one for the Democrats, and one for everyone else.
"That's how it is in Washington," he laments. "You have a biased government that is in favor of big government, because that's who pays their bills. And until you have real energy and zeal in cleaning out federal agencies -- which if anybody's going to do it ,it's this guy -- I just think that the ministerial state in Washington has come unconnected to the political branches. They exist unto themselves."
