4. He brought in Jack Smith, so I don't know how anyone can rate him at the very bottom of the scale.

That said, I will hold off on an assessment until the end of his time as AG. I think there is a lot that he is doing that is not getting attention and there may well have been multiple issues that have driven his strategy that we are not aware of. Time will tell. It isn't as though he were blocking indictments of Trump. DOJ's actions via Hunter Biden are reminiscent of Comey's treatment of HRC, but his hands-off approach may have been necessary. Not to suggest I haven't shared the frustrations of many here, but I'm still watching before deriding.
