The U.S. Capitol Police is hiring its own criminal prosecutor, in what observers say is an unprecedented politicization of law enforcement that could pose serious constitutional problems.

A job ad describes the position as “a Special Assistant United States Attorney located in USCP District Offices in Washington, DC,” and states that it reports to the USCP Deputy and General Counsel. But it also says the successful candidate will work “under the direct supervision and authority” of the Washington U.S. Attorney’s Office.

“This position is to represent the United States Government primarily prosecuting individuals and/or groups who have engaged in threats and/or acts of violence against Members of Congress, their staffs, United States Capitol Police employees, visitors to the Capitol complex, and facilities and properties within the Capitol Complex,” the ad continues.

The prosecutor would work on cases stemming from the January 6 riot, but the arrangement would also mean someone working for Congressional leadership could have a role in deciding whether to prosecute congressmen or their aides for corruption scandals.

“Work may involve problems of unusual delicacy, such as allegations of wrongdoing against staff or members of Congress, criminal trespass, investigations of threats or crimes against Members of Congress and arresting or detaining high-profile individuals,” the posting for the job, which pays $145,000 to $186,00 per year, says.:snip:
