People are under-reacting to the news of the unilateral installation of Trump cronies to run the Eastern and Southern Districts of New York US Attorney's offices.
At 120 days this vacancy gets kicked to local district court, which can choose to keep or replace the person (see (d):… ).

That "only 120 days" allows Sessions' loayalists complete visibility into a swathe of *sensitive* law enforcement investigations.
That means:

* Felix Sater - EDNY
* Kushner - EDNY
* Zarrab/Atilla/Erdogan - SDNY
* Kushner - SDNY
* Trump Org - SDNY
* Various Russian oligarchs - SDNY
* Manafort - EDNY

and much much more!
There are literally no direct checks and balances for 120 days.

SHORT RUN: We need the Senate to leverage other business to force re-installation of a career prosecutor.

LONG RUN: Fix the broken Federal Vacancies Reform Act.
If you thought it couldn't get worse... you were wrong:
Khuzami has long been known to be one of the worst examples of the revolving door -- e.g.,…

Deustche Bank is *central* -- see, e.g.,…

This news is crazy!…
The SDNY office has all sorts of visibility into Trump and Russian money laundering.

Trump & Russian oligarchs both have conspicuously problematic relationships with Deutsche Bank.

Deutsche Bank's terrible former lawyer is now Acting #2 in SDNY.
Here's an emblematic example of Khuzami at the SEC:… by @eisingerj
I guess Trump has found "his Roy Cohn," huh? The moves at FinCEN (… ), IRS (… ), and SDNY (unilaterally installing Giuliani partner Berman & Deutsche Bank's Khuzami) are Roy Cohn like.
.@eorden of @WSJ just (7:03 a.m. 1/6/18) advanced the story on the EDNY inquiry into Kushner's family business.

It's clear professionals at the SEC are taking this seriously and have cause to proceed further.…

Hopefully professionals are unfettered!
1. Kushner family biz is super shaky financially:…
2. Kushner biz unlikely to survive serious scrutiny.
3. Like Trump, only "beleaguered" Deutsche Bank, shady private equity types, & sovereign countries seeking influence back Kushner financially.
