Gowdy Calls Out Biden’s AG Office

When Barack Obama was in office, the attorney general’s role changed dramatically in this country.

The change was made with a single declaration by Eric Holder, who claimed he was Obama’s wingman.

That is not the role of the attorney general, but that comments changed the perception of the office, which was the subject of a recent Trey Gowdy rant.

Not a Wingman

The DOJ is supposed to operate separately from the administration.

Yes, it is a presidential appointment, but we have all seen how damaging it can be when that particular office is weaponized for political gain.

To that same point, it can be just as damaging when politicians act as though the office has been politicized when it has not.

I never like Bill Barr as an attorney general simply because of his ties to the Bush administration.

I bring him up because he is the person that Gowdy pointed to, having been unanimously confirmed during the Bush days, but fought against ferociously when Trump appointed him.

Gowdy stated, “Did the office change? Were the qualities we want in an attorney general different in 1991? Did the Senate and confirmation process change?

“Of course, it has, not for the better. But what about us? Did we change? Did we begin to want or expect something different from an attorney general?

“What are the ideal qualities for the nation’s top prosecutor, and who is best to identify that person?

“Does the current process attract, and identify and select the most capable people?”

Gowdy goes much deeper in the segment below…

What do you think? Is Gowdy right?

Has this office become a weapon for the sitting president or do you still think it acts independently?
