December 23 The nomination of the new government’s Attorney General is the most important personnel decision facing President-elect Biden of the United States.
However, the website THE Hill reported that on December 22 local time, President-elect Biden revealed that he did not have a clear choice for the candidate for the Attorney General.
At present, Biden has nominated ministers from the Department of Health and Human Services, the Treasury and said that he will establish a government that reflects the diversity of the United States, and the candidate for the Attorney General will adhere to this principle.
“As you know, there is a lot of controversy in every appointment, whether there are enough African-Americans, Latinos, Asian Americans, and whether there are enough new people and young people. Biden told reporters that the problem is still being solved, but there is no clear candidate for the Attorney General.
The report said that Biden’s nomination for the Attorney General will face strict scrutiny. Earlier, it was reported that the Department of Justice was investigating the financial situation of Biden’s son.
Biden said that his nominated attorney general would be able to handle the affairs of the Department of Justice independently, and he had not discussed the investigation with any candidate.
“I promise you that I will do what I say. The U.S. Attorney General is not equal to the president’s lawyer. I will appoint a person who enforces the law and is not manipulated by me. We seek to build a team that maximizes confidence for DOJ personnel to know that it’s not politics involved.” Biden said.
It is reported that in addition to the candidate for the Minister of Justice, the nomination of several important positions under the Minister has not been determined.
