Holder is stepping up because there is NO difference between the two administrations and he doesn't want to a standard set. something that could come back on him.

I say block the entire lawsuit. Being that this is a civil case involving government employees and their on the job actions, any money paid out to the plaintiff(s) would come out of the taxpayer's pockets. This could get astronomically expensive to litigate and any judgements levied against any of the defendants could very well bankrupt the USA.

Wait what? Bush and friends being held accountable for the false war in Iraq but then Holder and friends block it? What the deuce?
It's very simple. Holder and the Obama administration will let the previous administration off the hook for just about anything ... BECAUSE ... they want the same treatment from the administration that will follow them. Holder and the Obama administration will expect that the Christie administration let them off the hook for crimes the Obama administration has perp'd. And then Christie will expect the same from whoever follows him. It's the same old back room political deals that have gone on for centuries.
Hows that hope and change coming? Same ol' same ol' ...

Sounds to me like this lady needs to file her case in a court where the U.S. Dept. of Justice has no jurisdiction.

So...by your words...we should all just let this slide...let the governments do whatever they want to do...don't make anybody accountable for any decisions...just so to not set a precedent for the future ?
I wonder if I can pull this off at my workplace...do whatever I want...and not be accountable for any consequences of my actions...
Maybe you should try for once to chose an honest president...a government of the people...that works for it's own people....maybe than...the future administrations wouldn't mind "Justice"...

You're confused? The DOJ is here to protect the government...not the people. Not support what is right.
