From Voice of America:

“There are two things at stake,” said Paul Rosenzweig, a senior fellow at the R Street Institute, a conservative and libertarian think tank. “At the biggest and highest level, it’s about whether or not the Senate will retain the power to act as a check against a president in his appointing authority. More narrowly but also importantly, it’s about whether or not a presidential loyalist is going to take charge of the Mueller investigation.”

Critics are unpersuaded. Rosenzweig called the opinion an “extreme view” handed down by an office that is “in the business of advancing executive power.”
