The DOJ is in a pickle.

If the DOJ indicts Trump, its claim to autonomy or absolute immunity is toast. DJT will have accomplished the exact opposite of what Barr and the other Catholics burrowed in the federal government had in mind.

The reason we have had far fewer organized crime prosecutions is because their crimes have been legalized. As I have argued before, behind the veil of money and the law the exploitation of humans has gone on apace. The status of slave may not be legal, but enslavement is. The role of chattel is an open question.

What does it say of a culture where the status of the newborn is chattel?
