Biden quickly went to work flushing out anyone that was appointed by Trump. That includes an army of U.S. attorneys approved by the Senate.
I guess he didn’t want competent people to uphold law and justice?
These attorneys, serving all across the country, were told their “resignations” would be required by the end of two weeks. Oh, how nice, they’re letting them resign.
But apparently, there were two attorneys not even Biden was willing to fire. Because, perhaps, Republicans would revolt.
Here are the men he’s allowing to keep working.
From Fox News:
The U.S. attorneys will begin transitioning out of their roles, with the exception of the prosecutor overseeing the federal tax investigation into Hunter Biden, David Weiss for Delaware. John Durham, the U.S. attorney for Connecticut, will resign from his position as U.S. attorney but will stay on as special counsel to continue his now years-long investigation into the origins of the Trump-Russia probe.
Biden’s got his feet caught in a vice over one U.S. attorney, David Weiss from Delaware. That’s because he’s investigating Hunter Biden’s tax case.
If Biden went out of his way to fire this guy, it might look like he was trying to protect his son.
Make no mistake, Biden would have fired this guy if he could. But it would have sparked intense pushback from Republicans.
John Durham is also apparently safe. Although he resigned from his U.S. attorney post in Connecticut, he will continue as a special counsel.
He, despite a lack of updates or new information, is continuing his criminal investigation into the 2016 Russian probe.
There is a good reason for Biden to fire this guy, too. After all, evidence has emerged to suggest then-Vice President Biden was involved in that case.
But because President Trump made Durham a special counsel, it is harder for Biden to get rid of him.
If he did, it would also make his administration look bad and spark outrage from Republicans.
Do you think Biden should force dozens of U.S. Attorneys to resign?
- Biden forced 56 U.S. attorneys from their posts and cases.
- Two were spared, because of the nature of their work.
- The one investigating Hunter Biden, and John Durham, will stay on.
