DOJ asks Trump-era US attorneys to resign

1

The Justice Department will ask US attorneys appointed by former President Donald Trump to resign, according to a senior official at the department.

The federal prosecutor overseeing the federal tax probe involving Hunter Biden, however, has been asked to remain on the job.

US Attorney John Durham, who was appointed as special counsel to investigate the origins of the Trump-Russia probe, will also remain at his post.

Durham, though, is expected to resign from his other position as the US attorney in Connecticut.

The US attorney transition process is common between administrations.

It is expected to take several weeks for the few dozen remaining Trump-era appointees to leave and be replaced by nominees from President Joe Biden.

A number of US attorneys chosen by Trump have already left their positions.
