The GOP were seeking to destroy one of their own who refused to prosecute Dems when evidence was lacking. First they forced him to resign, then they bad-mouthed him in public saying his performance was subpar even though it wasn't, and finally they tried to derail his attempt to obtain a Judgeship. The politicization of the Judiciary Branch is the underlying story here, subverting the Rule of Law to obtain political advantages.
