Two former Maryland attorneys general have added their names to a letter arguing the FBI's bombshell decision to look into new emails that may involve Hillary Clinton is "unacceptable" and a "serious mistake."

Douglas F. Gansler was the state's attorney general from 2007 to 2015, was co-chair of Barack Obama's 2008 campaign in Maryland and ran an unsuccessful campaign for governor in 2014. Stephen H. Sachs was the attorney general from 1979 to 1987. Both are Democrats.

"As former state attorneys general from both parties, we find the recent actions of FBI Director James Comey to be unacceptable and unfair to all involved," read the letter, which was signed by 50 former state attorney's general and released Monday by Clinton's presidential campaign.

The letter also includes signatures from Republican former attorneys general, such as Grant Woods of Arizona and Jim Petro of Ohio. Woods previously endorsed Clinton instead of his party's nominee, Donald Trump.
