The letter from the ACLU follows an equally remarkable letter from the American Bar Association that was issued on Thursday.

The basic principles that underscore the Senate’s constitutional duty of advice and consent on federal judicial nominees require nothing less than a careful examination of the accusations and facts by the FBI.
