Corruption of the justice system has two major elements. The first—at issue in the Ukraine scandal—is the use of state power to go after one’s enemies. The other is the ability to restrain government power to reward one’s friends and allies.
A dramatic display of this latter power took place today, Feb. 11, when the U.S. Department of Justice, having articulated in court its view of an appropriate sentence for President Trump’s associate Roger Stone—convicted recently on multiple felony counts—confronted an angry presidential tweet and then meekly reversed course in a second filing.

On one ride in 2010, he said, he had an epiphany. While Tazewell was losing one natural resource — coal — there was another to replace it: the serpentine roads around him. He remembers thinking, “This road is a hidden natural resource for tourism and development.”
Seventy of the state’s 133 cities and counties gained population between April 1, 2010, and July 1, 2018, according to data released recently by the Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service at the University of Virginia. The population of Loudoun County jumped 30 percent, to more than 406,000. T
he remaining localities — including all of far Southwest Virginia — saw population declines. The population of Buchanan County, which borders West Virginia and Kentucky in the heart of coal country, dropped more than 10 percent, to fewer than 21,600 residents.
