Dumping Trump’s attorneys

February 9, 2021

The Biden administration has asked for the resignation of all US attorneys appointed by Trump, except for John Durham, who will get to finish his investigation into the Russia probe at long last, and David C. Weiss, who is investigating Hunter Biden’s taxes. The US would benefit quite a bit from a Justice Department that is more independent of the executive, and fully capable of investigating and prosecuting crimes within it, regardless of who commits them. I’m not sure how to get there, short of Constitutional amendment, something impossible in today’s political environment.

That said, Biden needs to make wholesale replacement of Trump’s appointees, throughout the government. While some may be competent and honest, that will be by accident.
