Wait, has Barr found his spine?

Spine? A broomstick up his derrière thanks to the civil courage of several DOJ employees.

Perhaps they're forgetting that Trump appoints the new one.

Barr is under intense scrutiny by everyone.

The DOJ will be shooting themselves in the foot, because the honeymoon period of the new AG will last pretty much through to the election.

And frankly, the DOJ have fucked up enough elections for everyone's lifetime.

I googled "is US President chief law enforcement officer".  It seems it all derives from ones understanding of Article II of the Constitution. There is so much opinion written on this, past case law, "expert" opinion, etc., that there was no way I could distill it all and present it here.  If you agree with the article you posted, you'll find opinion to support it.  If you agree with Trump, you'll find opinion to support him, and both opinions are formed from the wording of Article II, Section 2 of the Constitution.  It gets even muddier when the Vesting Clause is invoked.  As far as I can tell, whether or not one believes the President is the US Chief Enforcement Officer depends on ones political point of view and how one interprets the words of Article II, Sections 2 and 3 and the Vesting Clause.

Even your post says "Constitutional experts say the President is technically correct."

Sorry if this is muddled.  My head got muddled just trying to understand what I was reading.  Try it if you dare.
