In a recent interview,  New Hampshire Democrat Sen. Maggie Hassan blamed the 2006 Republican-controlled DOJ for allowing Big Pharma companies to accelerate the opioid crisis.

“Career prosecutors had really done a ton of work reviewing tons of Purdue Pharma internal documents, and they had recommended really serious criminal charges against Purdue Pharma and their executives. At the eleventh hour, political appointees at the Department of Justice intervened and said you can only go after minor charges with these guys,” Hassan told New Hampshire Today with Jack Heath. “There is untold harm that might have been prevented here, and we might be in a very different place, and we need to know what happened.”
