#1 If I were a defendant in a federal court, I'd be using this to attack the prosecution. I'd get it in any way I could so that the jury would see that federal prosecutors not only do this sort of thing, they get away with it.
Does the DoJ not see this? Do career, honest, ethical prosecutors not understand how much more difficult their jobs are going to be?

#2 I don't know about the career part, but honest and ethical don't seem to be part of Holder's DOJ at the moment.
In business, problems are often triaged like this:
1) does it affect me this quarter?
2) does it affect me in 2 years?
3) after 2 years, I'm either gone or in a different position, so no problemo!
So I guess the question is, do prosecutors stay with the DOJ from one admin to another?

#3 They dont care, they got the Senate seat for a Dem. To libs, the ends matter, by any means necessary.
