I blog about this at the American Spectator today: Conrad Black has a great essay against out-of-control federal prosecutors, in which he highlights a case I wrote about a few weeks ago. (Sorry for the internal links, but they are well worth following. Please do check out my post and the Black column.)
What I want to note here is that these stories are a continuing manifestation of a problem of overcriminalization and rogue prosecution that I have written about here at CFIF several times. See here and here. This is an important issue. It’s especially important when lawless people, like those now in charge, run the top ranks of the Justice Department.
