carol lam was on the justice department's hit list

At least two years before she was fired, U.S. Attorney Carol Lam of San Diego was the subject of "frequent conversation" inside the Justice Department, where her lack of gun and immigration prosecutions and tendency to try her own cases were considered "unusual," according to Monica Goodling, the Justice Department's former White House liaison: Lam targeted well ahead of ouster, Goodling says. I haven't been following this case very closely, but Goodling testified before the House Judiciary Committee last week about her role in the firings of Lam and several other U.S. attorneys, which some lawmakers believe were politically motivated. Looks like they had their sights set on Lam for a long time.
