Bush Administration, as Chief Crime Counsel to Senator Orrin Hatch, as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia, as a trial attorney at the United States Department of Justice, as an Assistant United States Attorney in the Southern District of California.

In 2006, Friedrich was appointed as a member of the United States Sentencing Commission, a position she held until 2016. In that capacity, she helped establish sentencing policies and practices for the federal criminal justice system by promulgating guidelines for congressional review and recommending changes in criminal statutes. On May 8, 2017, President Trump announced his intent to nominate Friedrich to serve as a United States District Judge of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia, to a seat vacated by Reggie Walton who assumed senior status on December 31, 2015, she was formally nominated on June 7, 2017. On July 25, 2017, the Senate Judiciary Committee held a hearing on her nomination, her nomination was reported out of committee by voice vote on September 14, 2017. On November 16, 2017, the U. S. Senate voted 93 -- 4. On November 27, the Senate voted 97 -- 3, she received her judicial commission on December 1, 2017. In June 2018, Friedrich rejected Russian-owned Concord Management and Consulting's request that she examine the instructions provided to the grand jury before the jury indicted the company.

Concord accused Special Counsel Robert Mueller's prosecutors of giving faulty instructions, tainting the grand jury's decision to approve charges. On August 13, 2018, in the case of United States v. Concord Management and Consulting LCC, she ruled against the defendant, one of 16 Russian entities charged by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, when it sought to void its indictment on the ground that Mueller's appointment to his position violated constitutional separation of powers. In a 41-page opinion, she held that although "no statute explicitly authorizes the Acting Attorney General to make the appointment, Supreme Court and D. C. Circuit precedent make clear that the Acting Attorney General has the necessary statutory authority," "the appointment does not violate core separation-of-powers principles. Nor has the Special Counsel exceeded his authority under the appointment order by investigating and prosecuting Concord."In January 2019, Friedrich rebuked the attorneys for Concord Management and Consulting for making personal attacks on Mueller's team.

The rebuke was triggered by a January 4 filing that questioned the trustworthiness of Mueller's office. Friedrich called Concord's recent filings "unprofessional and ineffective," and said their "relentless personal attacks" would not affect her decision.

Five solae

The five solae of the Protestant Reformation are a foundational set of principles held by theologians and clergy to be central to the doctrine of salvation as taught by the Reformed branches of Protestantism. Each sola represents a key belief in the Lutheran and Reformed traditions in contradistinction to the teaching of the Roman Catholic Church; these Reformers claimed that the Catholic Church its head, the Pope, had usurped divine attributes or qualities for the Church and its hierarchy. The solae were not systematically articulated together until the 20th century. For example, in 1554 Melanchthon wrote, "sola gratia justificamus et sola fide justificamur". All of the solae show up in various writings by the Protestant Reformers, but they are not catalogued together by any. In 1916, Lutheran scholar Theodore Engelder published an article titled "The Three Principles of the Reformation: Sola Scriptura, Sola Gratia, Sola Fides". In 1934, theologian Emil Brunner substituted Soli Deo gloriam for Sola Scriptura.

In 1958, historian Geoffrey Elton, summarizing the work of John Calvin, wrote that Calvin had "joined together" the "great watchwords". Elton listed sola fide with sola gratia as one term, followed by sola scriptura and soli Deo gloria. In commenting on Karl Barth's theological system, Brunner added Christus solus to the litany of solas while leaving out sola scriptura; the first time the additional two solae are mentioned is in Johann Baptiste Metz's 1965, The Church and the World. In most of the earliest articulations of the solae, three were specified: scripture over tradition, faith over works, grace over merit; each was intended to represent an important distinction compared with teachings claimed in Catholic doctrine. Sola Scriptura, is upheld by Lutheran and Reformed theologies and asserts that scripture must govern over church traditions and interpretations which are themselves held to be subject to scripture. All church traditions and teachings must be in unity with the teachings of scripture as the divinely inspired Word of God.

Sola Scriptura asserts that the Bible can and is to be interpreted through itself, with one area of Scripture being useful for interpreting others. This principle is based on 2 Timothy 3:16, which says, "All scripture is given by inspiration of God, is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness." That scripture can interpret. As all doctrines are formed via scriptural understandings, all doctrines must be found to align with Scripture and as such are subject to scripture before the believer can begin to apply them; this particular sola is sometimes called the formal principle of the Reformation, since it is the source and norm of the material cause or principle, the gospel of Jesus Christ, received sola fide, sola gratia. The adjective and the noun are in the ablative case rather than in the nominative case to indicate that the Bible does not stand alone apart from God, but rather that it is the instrument of God by which he reveals himself for salvation through faith in Christ.

Methodist theology, on the other hand, enshrines prima scriptura in its theological concept of the Wesleyan Quadrilateral, which holds that Sacred Tradition and Experience are sources of Christian theology, but are subordinate to Sacred Scripture, the primary authority. Sola fide, or "by faith alone", asserts that good works are not a requisite for salvation. Sola fide is the teaching that justification is received by faith alone, without any need for good works on the part of the individual. In classical Lutheran and Reformed theologies, good works are seen to be evidence of saving faith, but the good works themselves do not determine salvation; some Protestants see this doctrine as being summarized with the formula "Faith yields justification and good works" and as contrasted with a putative Roman Catholic formula "Faith and good works yield justification." The Catholic side of the argument is based on James 2:14-17. "What does it profit, my brethren, if someone says he has faith but does not have works?

Can faith save him? If a brother or sister is naked and destitute of daily food, one of you says to them,'Depart in peace, be warmed and filled', but you do not give them the things which are needed for the body, what does it profit? Thus faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead." The Methodist Churches emphasize that ordinarily, both faith and good works play a role in salvation. Bishop Scott J. Jones in United Methodist Doctrine writes that in Methodist theology: Faith is necessary to salvation unconditionally. Good works are necessary only conditionally, if there is time and opportunity; the thief on the cross in Luke 23:39-43 is Wesley's example of this. He believed in Christ and was told, "Truly I tell you, today you will be with me in Paradise." This would be impossible if the good works that are the fruit of genuine repentance and faith were unconditionally necessary for salvat
