Duty Calls

Jennifer Rubin’s Washington Post article this morning is an open letter to Justice Department lawyers, laying out their Constitutional and professional duties, which they are called upon to obey rather than directives from corrupt officials, including any emanating from Attorney General Bill Barr. They must be willing to lose their jobs rather than accede to those who would betray our democracy. Few of us expected that we would reach such a point, but there are times in the unfolding of history when people of good will are called upon to be heroes, and such a time has come.
