    The FBI is the domestic intelligence and security service of the United States, which simultaneously serves as the nation's prime federal law enforcement agency. Operating under the jurisdiction of the U.S. Department of Justice (wikipedia)

    DOJ is Judiciary, as is the AG. But the AG is part of the executive cabinet. Justice = Judiciary. The Supreme court is Judiciary branch also. The courts and lawyers and enforcement are Judiciary.

    Yup. The DOJ is not part of the Judicial Branch of government, which is comprised of our Federal Courts. The Supreme Court is the highest in the land. Once a decision/interpretation is made by the Supremes, the lower courts are bound by it.

    Just pretend we still live under the structural rules of the US Constitution then. Does anyone know someone who works at the FBI who could perhaps answer this question?
