POGO (Project On Government Oversight) Reveals Hundreds of Justice Department Attorneys Violated Professional Rules, Laws, or Ethical Standards

“Administration Won’t Name Offending Prosecutors.”

The violations include instances in which attorneys who have a duty to uphold justice have, according to the internal affairs office, misled courts, withheld evidence that could have helped defendants, abused prosecutorial and investigative power, and violated constitutional rights.” Read more HERE.
