One of the things I have noticed in this entire Trump investigation travesty – and something not mentioned by the media – is just how often some high ranking DOJ official or un-elected bureaucrat is married to someone who works for a law firm, think tank, or research group associated with a political party.
I know people tend to marry inside their peer groups because people often date within their proximal social network. For example, there are a lot of doctor-doctor or lawyer-lawyer relationships.
But the frequency of these influential spousal groups in DC makes me wonder if there is something more nefarious going on.
Something like a political party saying to a law firm or research group:
“There is this rising star at the DOJ or a judge getting noticed for an appellate court seat, go offer his wife a $400,000 per year make work job.”
It’s not exactly a bribe… but everyone kind of has an understanding. Not to mention the protection of spousal privilege.
If the latter is the case, I’m all for draining the swamp Stalin style.
