The department of justice, commonly known as justice department and abbreviated DOJ is a federal executive department that works for the United States Government. It functions as the primary authority for enforcement of the law and administration of justice in the United States. It was formed way back in 1870, under the Ulysses S. Grant administration and DOJ is well known for prosecuting members of the KKK or Ku Klux Klan in its early days. The DOJ administrates quite a few law enforcement agencies, including the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA).
