Biden asks Trump-appointed U.S. attorneys to resign – The Washington Post

The Biden administration on Tuesday asked the remaining U.S. attorneys appointed by President Donald Trump and confirmed by the Senate to submit their resignations, sparing only two federal prosecutors who are conducting politically sensitive probes, including of President Biden’s son, according to a Justice Department news release and officials.

The resignations will not necessarily take effect immediately. The U.S. attorneys were told on a conference call that they would be allowed to stay until Feb. 28 and transition out, people familiar with the matter said. Still, the move generated some criticism from both sides of the political aisle.
