Clemency, a DOJ Thing?

The clemency program has always been, really, since the Civil War, since there was a Justice Department, the responsibility of the Attorney General and the Justice Department. And, my own feeling, and I will debate Mark [Osler] on this forever, my own feeling is that it should stay there, but it should be run by the Attorney General, at a very high level – Former U.S. Pardon Attorney, Margaret Love, University of St. Thomas, School of Law, April 30, 2015

It’s hopeless, you can’t reform [the clemency system] in the Department [of Justice] - Former U.S. Pardon Attorney, Margaret Love, quoted by The Marshall Project, December 13, 2015.
