From The Hill:

Criminal justice reform advocates are pushing the Senate Judiciary Committee to more closely scrutinize President Trump’s nominees to be U.S. attorneys.

Families Against Mandatory Minimums, Right on Crime, the R Street Institute and the American Conservative Union in a letter Wednesday asked Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) for the second time to have members question nominees, either in writing or via confirmation hearings. The groups want nominees to be asked about their prosecutorial philosophy on key issues, including sentencing, asset forfeiture and respecting the authority of the states.
