The Biden administration will begin removing U.S. attorneys associated with the Trump administration, according to the Daily Wire.
“The resignation request is expected to apply to 56 Senate-confirmed US attorneys appointed by Trump.”
“Justice officials have scheduled a call with US attorneys around the country to discuss a transition that is expected to take weeks. The Justice official didn’t say when the resignations would take effect.”
Acting Attorney General Monty Wilkinson requested that Delaware US Attorney David Weiss stay on course.
Weiss is currently overseeing the Hunter Biden federal criminal investigation regarding his foreign business dealings.
Bret Baier Tweeted, “US Attorney John Durham, who AG Bill Barr tapped to investigate the origins of the Trump Russia probe, is expanding his team by adding additional prosecutors, and is making, ‘excellent progress,’ according to a federal law enforcement official familiar w/ the situation.”
Federal law enforcement officials put the investigation into Hunter Biden on hold “in the months before the election” and “now that the election is over, the investigation is entering a new phase.”
“Federal prosecutors in Delaware, working with the IRS Criminal Investigation agency and the FBI, are taking overt steps such as issuing subpoenas and seeking interviews, the person with knowledge said.”
Hunter Biden “violated tax and money laundering laws in business dealings in foreign countries, principally China.”
From The Daily Wire:
Wilkinson will also not touch Special Counsel John Durham’s criminal investigation into the origins of the Russia probe, but he is expected to resign from his role as U.S. attorney in Connecticut. In December, Fox News reported that Durham was continuing to expand his criminal investigation, which began before the pandemic.
The criminal investigation into Hunter Biden began before William Barr became Attorney General of the United States.
