I don't know how it is in other areas, but around here the prosecutors for the state and even county can pick and choose their own cases. Which is why some folks run for Attorney General and boast a 95%+ conviction record: easy to get a high rate if you choose the low-hanging fruit.

Most could be eliminated. They have convinced us we need their “services”.
Both sides defend their favorite agencies and can’t imagine America without them.
The result is never ending expansion.

I bet getting rid of the party junkets they call "conferences" in places like Las Vegas and other vacation areas would save a few billion $$$$

I heard of this for the first time today. How can I trust senior FBI personnel who are ignorant enough to document this idiocy in text messages? I had to have a talk with my youngest Granddaughter concerning texts, e-mail, and social media but she was 11 years old in her first year of Middle School. I expect senior FBI personnel to know better.

I know. Silly question.
For me, it's a no brainer. The answer is no and no. Both agencies are so full of leftover loyalists to the Obama administration that I don't trust them to be fair and impartial. That being said, I do believe that a lot of the rank and file of both are honest and hard working, but by the time a report gets to the top, it's been 'filtered' to say whatever the higher officials want it to.
Look no further than Robert Mueller. He was the FBI director when the Uranium One deal was occurring. He either knew what was going on and chose to look the other way, which makes him complicit, or didn't know, which makes him incompetent. Either way, he doesn't seem interested in looking in that direction but would rather try to find dirt on Donald Trump.

I am more of a libertarian than anything else, and I think Fedgov being cut by 1/3-1/2 would only be a good START on what this country needs

I don't trust any of them anymore. To much corruption going on and nothing is being done about it.

I don’t care if the agencies are made up of card carrying Reagan Republicans. I don’t trust them. Period.
