Is it important for an Attorney General to have a Democratic House and Senate? [View all]

One could see, as we have seen, how a Party can obstruct and block investigations from an opposing Party.

In reality, that should have no bearing on the pursuit of justice. But, it did.

Is that why Biden is waiting to nominate his choice for Attorney General? Perhaps until after the Georgia special election? There is no reason to believe that McConnell and his comrades would not continue to block investigations of criminal wrongdoing.

Just a thought, because we do not know how serious the new Administration will be in pursuing the crimes of the previous Administration? They may believe the most important thing for our nation is to heal the divisions and move forward?

We are leaving four years where everything was relative to the narcissism of the Leader. People that are lacking in empathy have no sense of guilt or crime. Emoluments is just an obsolete phrase in the Constitution. It really doesn't matter if the President does business with foreign allies, or even with foreign adversaries. There is no sense of guilt when there is no empathy.

The same relativism would apply when the President attempted to bribe a foreign leader to mount a character assassination against his political opponent. There was no sense of guilt. It was just an advantage he was looking to gain.

Will the country attempt to move forward after the Inauguration of Joe Biden? Will he attempt to "unite" the country? Will he be successful?

Some may argue that if justice is ignored, then it would be to the detriment of the country, no matter the good intentions of healing the divisions?

It is going to take a very strong leader to lead the new Justice Department.
