NBC:

The Biden administration will begin removing all Senate-confirmed U.S. attorneys appointed during the Trump administration, with two exceptions, a senior Justice Department official said.

The process, which is not uncommon, could start as early as Tuesday. They will be asked to resign.

  • John Durham will remain to to investigate the oranges “origins of the Russia probe, but not as U.S. attorney for the district of Connecticut.”
  • David Weiss, U.S. attorney for Delaware, will also remain in place to investigate Hunter Biden’s taxes.
  • In 2017, Trump demanded “the resignation of 46 U.S. attorneys who were holdovers from the Obama administration.”
  • Preet Bharara, U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, publicly said he did not resign and was instead fired.
