Time for term limits. These should apply cumulatively to Congress, DOJ at DAAG level or higher, federal judges, etc. We have a tight inner world of law profs, clerks, judges, DAAG profs, big law firms, House and Senate Judiciary committees, and profs who serve on their staff briefly who are loyal only to themselves.

Was the Jamie Gorelick Wall Memo written to keep the FBI from telling Assistant US Attorneys about this privileged inner circle and then it also let terrorists in?

Is the President told if NSA picks up chatter overseas that he is withholding info from investigations?
