DOJ Shakes Up Criminal Case Against Aaron Schock

Politico reports:

The Justice Department is replacing the prosecutors overseeing the criminal case against former Rep. Aaron Schock, an unusual move that could delay the proceedings in the case.

In a court document filed on Thursday, John Childress, the U.S. Attorney for the Central District of Illinois, told U.S. District Court Judge Matthew Kennelly — himself new to the case — that the change was being made.

Childress didn’t specify in the court filing why the prosecutors were being swapped out, although he did say members of the new team would not come from his office.
