The import of the Brennan Center project is NOT about optional, feel-good community involvement for U.S. prosecutors; it’s about remaking their professional profile to focus on an SJW agenda — whether that’s what the taxpayers and Congress want, or not. See, for example, opening the “neighborhood prosecutor’s office in a storefront”; the profile of community organizing and political ambulance chasing, at taxpayer expense and purporting to act on behalf of the American people and constitutional government.]
Doug Jones, the Democratic candidate for December’s Senate special election in Alabama, spearheaded an effort on behalf of a legal group massively funded by billionaire George Soros that sought to fundamentally transform the role of U.S. Attorneys from one of prosecuting criminals to activists that enact a so-called progressive criminal justice agenda.
