A: Michael Cullen. Bernard Darnton explains:
Remember how Franklin Roosevelt used to set the IRS on his political opponents? I'm sure Cullen does; he's a professional historian and a Roosevelt-admirer. Remember Richard Nixon's 'Enemies List'? Seems Cullen's starting one too. Nixon's Attorney General John Dean explained the purpose of the 'Enemies List' in a memo:
- "This memorandum addresses the matter of how we can maximize the fact of our incumbency in dealing with persons known to be active in their opposition to our Administration, Stated a bit more bluntly —how we can use the available federal machinery to screw our political enemies."
There are some limits to power.
