1. Obama Team Faces Major Task in Justice
Dept. Overhaul
by By Carrie Johnson of the Washington Post

....Obama will have to do a careful balancing act. At a conference in
Washington this week, former department criminal division chief
Robert S. Litt asked that the new administration avoid fighting old
battles that could be perceived as vindictive, such as seeking to
prosecute government officials involved in decisions about
interrogation and the gathering of domestic intelligence. Human rights
groups have called for such investigations, as has House Judiciary
Committee Chairman John Conyers Jr. (D-Mich.).

"It would not be beneficial to spend a lot of time calling people up to
Congress or in front of grand juries," Litt said. "It would really spend a
lot of the bipartisan capital Obama managed to build up."
