Obama's DOJ Taking a Hard Look

With the collapse of several backdating cases and the expected shredding of the dishonest "honest services fraud" law by the U.S. Supreme Court, the Rove Republican Racket is imploding.

Now the Obama Administration and U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder are taking a hard look at those two areas of law that were pumped up by the Rove-Bush-Cheney Administration.

Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, the head of the Criminal Division, said in a recent interview with Main Justice that the department was taking a “hard look” at the backdating cases. “We take a hard look — whether we’re talking about stock options cases or whether we’re talking about honest services cases, where it’s our obligation to assess the state of the law,” Breuer said. “That’s what we’re doing in the Criminal Division and that’s what the U.S. Attorneys’ offices are doing.”
