    A month after dismissing federal prosecutors, Justice Department does not have any U.S. attorneys in place

    ... But the attorney general does not have a single U.S. attorney in place to lead his tough-on-crime efforts across the country.

    How Trump Will Dismantle Civil Rights Protections in America
    The same way Bush did: by politicizing the DOJ


    ... Nearly a decade since Bush left office, Trump and Sessions have started making their own moves to transform the DOJ and reorient the Civil Rights Division in particular to fit with their agenda. As we look for clues about how far they’ll go, the turbulent 2000s are a reminder of just how bad it can get, and how a new political team might go about pushing the division’s long-serving career attorneys out of the way ...

    The Trump family's conflict of interest issues, explained

    Ivanka Trump recently gave an interview to CBS television in which she attempted to answer concerns about her role as an official adviser to her father, President Donald Trump, and potential conflicts of interest from her fashion business.
