Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Mediaite.com: “Bill Barr Decries 'Headhunting' at Justice Dept.”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Attorney General Bill Barr spoke at Hillsdale College on Wednesday night and teed off on what he decried as “headhunting” of big targets within the Department of Justice.

He said of the department he runs, per CNN, “Name one successful organization or institution where the lowest level employees’ decisions are deemed sacrosanct, there aren’t. There aren’t any letting the most junior members set the agenda… It might be a good philosophy for a Montessori preschool, but it is no way to run a federal agency.”

Barr said, throughout history, prosecutors have sought to “amass glory” by prosecuting prominent people, and he regularly witnessed that phenomenon during his supervision of the Justice Department.

“I’d like to be able to say that we don’t see head hunting in the Department of Justice,” Barr said. “That would not be truthful. I see it every day.”

Barr also teed off on the “criminalization of politics” where “now you have to call your adversary a criminal, and instead of beating them politically, you try to put them in jail.”
