NEW: Two notorious political operatives, Jacob Wohl and Jack Burkman, have been charged by the Michigan Attorney General in connection with an alleged orchestration of robocalls which the AG's office says was an attempt to suppress the vote.

They each face 4 felony counts.
If convicted the two could face as many as 7 years in prison.
The Michigan AG alleges the calls were orchestrated by the duo in New York, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and Illinois “all of which reported similar robocalls being made to residents in their states who live in urban areas with significant minority populations.”
