The Justice Department isn’t independent. It is part of the Executive Branch, and the entire Executive power is vested in the President. https://t.co/phMtouey3u

Maybe a daylong viewing of every episode of Schoolhouse Rock is in order.

Vox has no f@@king clue.

Eric Holder called himself Obama’s “wingman”. Independence, indeed.

It works under the President. The people in DOJ serve at the pleasure if the President
