Prosecutors sought to demonstrate that Ms. Martin, a lawyer with the Transportation Security Administration, was not part of the Justice Department team handling the Moussaoui case. But Judge Brinkema said that she was "an attorney for the United States and you all represent the United States. It's not the Justice Department against Mr. Moussaoui, it's the United States" that is trying to have him executed.

The witnesses, all government aviation safety officials, generally testified today that nothing in the coaching from Ms. Martin would have changed their testimony and some described her as a nuisance who wasted their time. But as they testified in detail about their contacts with Ms. Martin, Judge Brinkema seemed increasingly exasperated.

It's the same as when one agency of the federal government seeks to disavow a deal made by another agency. The extensive case law say that's there's only one United States government and that a deal with one agency is a deal with all. The theory is the same in this case.
