Senate Meets AG Nominee; Treats Her Like Lethal Poison
On January 29, 2027, the new president announced his choice for Attorney General, Claire Washington. Five days, later, she appeared at her confirmation hearing. Senator Grove Fatheringill III opened his folder and consulted his list of questions—
First of all, Ms. Washington, I want to offer my congratulations on your nomination. It’s about time we had another woman of color as—
Senator, I consider that an insult. I’m not here because I’m black. I’m here because the president thinks I’m qualified to serve. My skin is black. I was raised in what you could call “black culture.” But I’m my own person, which is to say, I’m an individual. My thoughts and actions aren’t black and they aren’t white. And frankly, I don’t care what people think of that remark. I’m not fronting for a particular culture. I happen to believe in the US Constitution. And if I may raise a few more hackles among those people waving their banners of political correctness, I am a sister to two brothers in my family, but I’m a not a “sister” to anyone else.
Ms. Washington, I didn’t mean to imply that as an African-American, you—
I’m not African American. My ancestors have lived in the United States for four generations. Are you British-American, Senator?
No. I was just…Ms. Washington, why don’t you tell us what your background…how your background and education equip you for the position of Attorney General?
I’m not sure they do. But I will say this. My first act upon gaining confirmation would be to pursue wide-ranging RICO cases against major gangs in the inner cities of America.
Excuse me, what?
Termination. Ending. Abolishment. Cancelation. Disbanding. Prosecution. Incarceration. Of gangs. As continuing criminal enterprises. Gangs continue to destroy the quality of life wherever they make their money.
What are the socio-economic causes that lead to the formation of gangs?
I’m interested in what the gangs are causing, as they sell toxic drugs, shoot and kill people, recruit innocent children into their ranks, destroy families, and make streets lethally unsafe.
For decades, the Department of Justice has failed to mount RICO cases against gangs. Do you know why? Because the gangs sell drugs for cartels, and the cartels launder their money in banks. The cartels and the banks are protected, because IMPORTANT PEOPLE are making huge profits from the drug business. If you confirm me, all that will end like the snow ends when spring comes.
Are you accusing—
Yes, Senator, I am. Whoever you were about to ask me about, I am accusing them.
I didn’t even get a chance to—
My second line of attack will be against the CEOs of major corporations that pollute the environment—not with CO2—which is not killing anyone—but with highly dangerous chemicals. Certain key pesticides, for example.
However, you surely understand that modern industrial-scale agriculture—
And three, I will make sure pharmaceutical companies that sell highly toxi
