    The Chief Law Enforcer cannot even enforce his own life let alone the People and State of Utah. His alleged conversations and implications to individuals is that he is the law by himself. A year ago a lot of the Republicans were against him getting the nomination. Why? He showed his colors long ago. You can't be above the law,

    DN Subscriber2, I feel you are living in a bit of a dream world. We as citizens deserve better than the likes of John Swallow. I hope that the investigation sheds light on ALL the government so that we may rid the systems of ALL the corrupt.

    Memo to Republican elected officials: You have a problem, sitting on your hands and looking around waiting for someone else to do something is mimicking what you are so critical of what POTUS is doing. Man up and start your own investigation.

    I am afraid that this whole mess proves the Peter Principle for the governor, State Senate and House leaders as well as the AG himself. They have all risen to their level of incompetence, and cowardice in my not so humble opinion.

    It ain't going to blow over boys and girls. Do something, now.

    This is getting curiouser and curiouser.

    Utah officials are now waiting for signals from the *federal* government to help them understand how to proceed?

    The apocalypse must be imminent...

    Seriously? Why has this guy not resigned? That's all he has to do. Silly, and a total disgrace to law enforcement. I met someone who works for this guy, she says he is a total joke.

    Round up enough lynch mobs with unlimited investigative powers and you can probably bring charges against anyone.

    Worse, for public officials, the time needed to defend themselves against even totally false charges is the same as if they had actually done something wrong. And then the politcal opponents eager to smear them will demand they resign because they are spending time other than at their elected position.

    Swallows opponents are seeking political victories (or in the case of the guy in St.George, a reduced sentence for his own crimes). None of them are seeking the truth.

    There are more than enough potential State infractions that the Feds are not investigating to do an independent review. I think fellow Republicans are needlessly stalling. The problem isn't going away folks.
