Remember when Eric Holder warned us of the dire consequences of the sequester cuts?
As we speak, these cuts are already having a significant negative impact not ust on Department employees, but on programs that could directly impact the safety of Americans across the country....Our capacity—to respond to crimes, investigate wrongdoing, and hold criminals accountable has been reduced. And, despite our best efforts to limit the impact of sequestration, unless Congress quickly passes a balanced deficit reduction plan, the effect of these cuts-on our entire justice system and on the American people—may be profound.
Wow, that sounds bad. Now that the sequester is actually in effect, we would expect Justice to have pared down and streamlined, so as to focus its efforts on the most threatening of criminals and dangerous crimes. Or maybe not.
The Justice Department late Tuesday formally filed its case against Lance Armstrong and his company Tailwind Sports for millions of dollars that the U.S. Postal Service spent to sponsor the cycling team.Rest easy, folks. Rest easy. Eric Holder's DOJ is on the case.
