And now they have aggressively and foolishly taken on the appointment of U.S. attorneys”—who traditionally get named via consultation with the U.S. Senators from the state in which the district is located—”and turned this political move into a seeming criminal conspiracy. If these guys were the lawyers you hired to handle your divorce, you’d complain to the state bar.”
