(The Hill) Lawyers for Aaron Schock expect the former Republican congressman from Illinois to be indicted by a federal jury looking into whether his office misused campaign funds.
In a statement reported by The Associated Press, Schock attorney George Terwilliger said the indictment will "look bad" but will represent a "misuse of power" by Justice Department attorneys.
He said underneath the charges are "made-up allegations of criminal activity arising from unintentional administrative errors."

"These charges are the culmination of an effort to find something, anything, to take down Aaron Schock," Terwilliger said.
