Ind. Courts - Trump announcement sweeps out U.S. Prosecutor for N.D. Indiana
The AP is reporting:
HAMMOND. - The federal prosecutor for northern Indiana has resigned after President Donald Trump sought the dismissals of dozens of U.S. attorneys nationwide who were holdovers from the Obama administration.Here is a longer story, with photos, from the Gary Post-Tribune.
The U.S. attorney’s office in Hammond said David Capp resigned after 31 years as a federal prosecutor. * * *
Trump’s Friday request for resignations didn’t include Indianapolis U.S. Attorney Josh Minkler. He’s a career prosecutor appointed by the district’s federal judges after Obama appointee Joe Hogsett resigned in 2014 to start his successful campaign for Indianapolis mayor.
The NY Times yesterday had a major story on the resignation/firing of Preet Bharara, the very visible United States attorney in Manhattan.
