Author’s Take

*Biden’s DOJ is definitely committed to equal application of the law, like when parents are labeled domestic terrorists or when states are no longer allowed to determine the laws of their elections. The Department of Justice is being weaponized to prosecute political adversaries.

Yet, the notion of a person outside the executive branch asserting executive privilege could provide a rough road ahead.
