If the Trump appointed attorneys leave, then Biden gets to appoint political hacks. Word has it that the Biden administration will ask for the resignation of all the U.S. attorneys appointed by former President Donald Trump barring two exceptions.
John Durham, who was appointed by former Attorney General William Barr to investigate the origins of the Russia probe, will continue with his investigation as special counsel but is expected to resign as the U.S. attorney from Connecticut.
David Weiss, the U.S. attorney for Delaware, will reportedly remain in office and continue to oversee the tax investigation into the president’s son, Hunter Biden.
The Biden administration may also keep the acting U.S. attorney in Washington D.C., Michael Sherwin, onboard as he oversees a sweeping investigation into the January 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol.
The Senate has yet to schedule a confirmation hearing for Biden’s attorney-general nominee, Merrick Garland, a federal appeals court judge who in 2016 was snubbed by Republicans for a seat on the Supreme Court. Let Garland fire these folks and let’s see if it’s legal.
So Joe wants his own hacks in there so they can watch over Antifa and BLM. Protect them in other words.
This information was leaked yesterday to CNN. Reuters, Forbes, ABC and other MSM ran with the story. It looks as if there are 56 attorneys left. I say the ones who were appointed by the Senate should stay.
What say you?
