According to a new report, Joe Biden has sought the resignation of all but two of U.S Attorneys appointed by Trump.
The only two exceptions are David Weiss and John Durham. David Weiss is overseeing the tax investigation into his son. John Durham is investigating the origins of the Trump-Russia investigation.
The Justice Department as soon as Tuesday will ask the remaining U.S. attorneys appointed by former President Donald Trump to submit their resignations, paving the way for President Biden to choose the nation’s top federal prosecutors, CNN and The Associated Press reported Monday night, citing a senior Justice Department official. The requests will affect 56 Senate-confirmed U.S. attorneys appointed by Trump. Many of Trump’s appointees already resigned.
There are two big exceptions to the resignation requests, the official said: David Weiss, the U.S. attorney in Delaware who is overseeing a tax investigation of Hunter Biden, and U.S. Attorney John Durham. Acting Attorney General Monty Wilkinson called Weiss on Monday night and asked him to remain in office, CNN reports, and Durham will reportedly keep his position as special counsel overseeing the origins of the Trump-Russian investigation while resigning as U.S. attorney for Connecticut. Former Attorney General William Barr secretly made Dunham a special counsel in October.
