According to a senior official of the U.S. Department of Justice Department, a senior official said that the Department of Justice would require former President Trump to submit resignations as soon as Tuesday, although two senior prosecutors in Delaware and Connecticut may be exempted.
On a call Monday night, acting Attorney General Monty Wilkinson asked Delaware prosecutor David Weiss, who is overseeing a tax investigation into Biden’s son Hunt, to remain in office.
Justice Department officials say John Durham, who was appointed as special counsel by former Attorney General Barr, will also continue to work, but he is expected to resign as Connecticut prosecutor.
The report said that the resignation request is expected to apply to 56 federal prosecutors appointed by Trump.
Justice Department officials have arranged for telephone calls with federal prosecutors, and personnel changes are expected to require a transition period of several weeks.
Judicial officials did not indicate when the resignation would take effect.
The report also pointed out that the change of U.S. prosecutors is routine, but it is often full of politics. In 2017, then Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked 46 Obama-appointed U.S. prosecutors to submit resignations.
A few were allowed to stay in office for a short time, but most had to leave immediately.
