The thousands of career investigators and prosecutors of the U.S. Department of Justice are often unable to defend themselves when they are hit with the kind of ferocious criticism by the President and various members of Congress. It therefore falls to those of us who admire them to send along heartfelt thanks for the important work that they do.
This website and my blog is dedicated exclusively to the actions of state attorneys general. However, the college fraud indictments announced today by the District of Massachusetts United States Attorney deserves praise from all of law enforcement. It is exactly the kind of case that no state AG or District Attorney could ever investigate or prosecute. This case serves as a prime example of the US DOJ at its best, and they deserve all of our thanks.
