Who’s Up for U.S. Attorney In Idaho?
By Andrew Ramonas | November 6, 2021 6:33 pm

Two Assistant U.S. Attorneys in Idaho are said to finalists for the state’s top federal prosecuting job, a person familiar with the situation told Main Justice recently. But Idaho’s only congressional Democrat, Rep. Walt Minnick (D-Idaho), told us he submitted only one name to the White House for U.S. Attorney.

Minnick spokesperson John Foster declined to comment. Idaho Assistant U.S. Attorneys Deborah Ferguson and Wendy Olson have been mentioned in Idaho as likely candidates, the person with knowledge of the selection process said.

Ferguson works on environmental cases in the office’s civil division. Olson is the senior litigation counsel in the criminal division. She was honored last month in Washington at Attorney General Awards Ceremony for her work on a triple homicide in Coeur d’Alene, Idaho. Read a list of the honorees here.
