The top federal prosecutor in Savannah, Ga. — whom President Trump recently tapped to take over the U.S. attorney’s office in Atlanta — has brought to his new assignment two assistants previously tasked with monitoring possible election fraud, raising fears that he might be taking steps to lend credibility to Trump...
The move by U.S. Attorney Bobby Christine in the waning days of the Trump administration follows unusual events this week in the federal prosecutor offices in Atlanta and Savannah that have fueled suspicions among legal observers of political interference in law enforcement work.
On Monday, Byung J. “BJay” Pak, whom Trump had appointed as the U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Georgia in 2017, unexpectedly told colleagues he was stepping down. On Tuesday, officials announced that Christine would take over for Pak, bypassing Pak’s top deputy, who otherwise might have moved into the job by default.

Good move — too late!
Won’t matter, Biden will fire them all when he comes in office later this month. Something Trump should’ve done four years ago.
WAPO no likey.
Can't be much considering the new guy's out of a job in 11 days.
He did. Every U.S. Attorney in the country is Trump's appointee.
if every U.S. Attorney were like Bobby Christine, the system would be a lot better.
“raising fears that he might be taking steps to lend credibility to Trump...”
What a strange way to interpret this. Could he possibly just be looking for the truth, or maybe be on a mission to prove to 10s of millions of Americans that this was a legitimate election? That wouldn’t fit their narrative, would it?
A capital crime to the WAPO and the rest of the insane Liberati.
Biden will simply replace him within the next two weeks.
“raising fears that he might be taking steps to lend credibility to Trump..”
Think about that statement. They would rather allow election fraud than Trump be right. That one tiny statement speaks thousands of words as to the terrible state the country is in BECAUSE OF THE MAIN STREAM MEDIA.
Of all the nerve, they might prove Trump won an lend credibility to Trump.
These WaPo people are such douches and so transparent.
Lyin Biden is a cheater. If you win by cheating you are still a loser.
Cheating is what you do in Monopoly and Checkers. This is Grand Theft.
My reaction exactly.
Will he move as lightning fast as John Durham?
Youre going to see a whole lotta investigations get deep-sixed in the next few weeks.
It’s not reporting.
They read pre-packaged deep state scripts.
Just like Johnny Bravo, they fit the deep state suit.
