Career federal prosecutors oppose what President Barack Obama has plausible reason to view as major potential legislative achievement of his second term – sweeping bipartisan criminal justice reform. And a Senate gatekeeper for the legislation is siding with the prosecutors.
Citing a recent report by federal prosecutors, Senate Judiciary Committee Chairman Charles Grassley would oppose any laws that would reduce sentencing for major drug offenders.
A report by the National Association of Assistant United States Attorneys, “While drug offenders accounted for a large percentage of the federal prison population in 2013 and 2014, virtually all of those were convicted of major drug trafficking crimes, including the trafficking and sale of significant amounts of dangerous drugs like heroin, methamphetamine, cocaine, crack cocaine, and oxycodone."
