Fitzgerald Will Stay
By | February 12, 2022 2:26 am

US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who brought criminal fraud charges against former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich, will stay on with the Obama administration, reports Pete Williams at NBC.  Since all 93 U.S. Attorneys are political appointees, they are usually replaced by the new president when there is a change of political parties in the White House.  The suggestion for Fitzgerald’s retention was made to Attorney General Eric Holder by Sen. Dick Durbin (D-Ill.) and was “well received” according to officials at the Justice Department and Durbin’s office.
