Subject: I second the message of your earlier e-mailer

This whole notion that “morale is terrible” at DOJ is a press created fantasy that simply plays into the Dems storyline about Gonzalez.

I’d say 99%of DOJ prosecutors come to work and find the cases sitting on their desk, and go about doing their job the same way regardless of who the AG is.

And, I can tell you from first hand experience, FBI and DEA agents couldn’t give a rip about who the AG is.  From their perspective they work for the Director/Administrator of their agency, and not for the AG even though he sits at the top of the chain.
