Trump Nominating Giuliani Crony as U.S. Attorney, January 3, 2018

It is NOT NORMAL for the president to personally interview and handpick a political ally for the United States Attorney job in New York. Typically, the president is not involved with the interview process for such positions. This is particularly alarming because the president, his businesses, and members of his family may be under investigation by this attorney.

Update: a New York Senator has announced that she will use her “blue-slip prerogative” to attempt to block this nomination.
