  1. Perma’at, don’t waste time pointing out what should be known by informed citizens. There is no longer even a thread of intellectual curiosity about governing norms. This process is part of every administration and US Attorneys know this when accepting this office. For the record President Biden kept in place the Special appointed US Attorney chosen by Trump Admin to remain in charge of the pre-2016 election resulting in the Russia probe to complete it, as well as the Trump appointed US Attorney in charge of the investigation of his own son , Hunter Biden.
