President Obama’s push to grant early release to federal prisoners has prompted the Justice Department to announce it’s drastically increasing the number of attorneys to handle the clemency, The Daily Caller reports.

The hiring would more than double the agency’s staffing level, which currently has seven permanent attorneys.
