The sad thing is, the judge thinks Holder cares about the law:
U.S. Circuit Judge William Pryor Jr., a member of the U.S. Sentencing Commission, expressed his unease with Holder directive to federal prosecutors on reducing prosecutions and sentencing for drug crimes, thus bypassing the regular commission process.
“The law provides the executive no authority to establish national sentencing policies based on speculation about how we and Congress might vote on a proposed amendment,” Pryor said.
The Sentencing Commission was already forming an amendment to the sentencing guidelines to submit to Congress for consideration.
“I regret that before we voted on the amendment, the attorney general instructed assistant United States attorneys across the Nation not to object to defense requests to apply the proposed amendment in sentencing proceedings going forward,” Pryor said. “That unprecedented instruction disrespected our statutory role.”
Read the rest.
Laws and protocols have no impact on what this administration does.
The agenda is all. : Does it further the agenda? : Then do it. : It’s against the law?
We are dealing with a lawless administration.
It’s time we all realize that.
