John Durham of Connecticut will remain to lead the investigation of the origins of the Russia probe, and U.S. attorney for Delaware David Weiss will also remain.
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.
