Summary, etc.:
"CNN legal analyst Elie Honig analyzes how Attorney General William Barr has demolished norms and destroyed faith in the Department of Justice, turning one of the most apolitical and respected American institutions into a private law firm supporting and protecting its client: Donald Trump"-- Provided by publisher.
Using his own experience as a prosecutor at the Department of Justice, Honig shows show how, as America's top law enforcement official, Bill Barr repeatedly violated the Department;s written rules, and those vital, unwritten norms and principles that comprise the "prosecutor's code." Barr's first act as Attorney General was to distort the findings of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, earning a public rebuke for his dishonesty from Mueller himself and, later, from a federal judge. He intervened in unprecedented manners to undermine his own DOJ prosecutors of political allies of the President. Honig proves that Barr, in service of his own deeply-rooted, extremist legal and personal beliefs. corrupted the Justice Department-- and explains what we must do to prevent this from ever happening again. -- adapted from jacket
