  1. three branches of government: legislative , executive, judicial – FBI goes from executive and marshalls from Judicial. thanks for sharing this one – it helps.

    • No – this article is poorly written, and the response is also wrong. Both FBI and the U.S. Marshals (spelled with one “L”) are under the executive branch of government; both fall under the U.S. Department of Justice, and both report to the U.S. Attorney General. The Marshals are also located in foreign countries as well. Please check your information/sources before putting mis-information on any forum.
