Yesterday, it was the "family jewels," the day before, it was FBI spying on the National Lawyers Guild, today it's a subpoena about the illegal eavesdropping. The ruling class is having an orgy of contrition over its bad behavior. Or...maybe it's just like what trial lawyers have to do sometimes: Squarely face up to the "bad facts" that are going to come out in front of the jury anyway.
Sometimes, where the government's bad faith is concerned, you have to go looking for the facts yourself. A very smart lawyer did the hard work to track down the number of custody deaths of immigration detainees (the government doesn't keep track!) and wrote a report for the UN.
