Trump pulls nomination for former U.S. attorney for D.C. to Treasury post
[www.axios.com]

President Trump is withdrawing his nomination for former U.S. attorney for D.C. Jessie Liu to serve as the Treasury Department's undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes, a top position overseeing economic sanctions, according to two sources with direct knowledge.

The big picture: Liu was confirmed in September 2017 to lead the largest U.S. attorney's office in the country, overseeing a number of politically charged prosecutions that included the case against Trump associates Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and other spinoffs from the Mueller investigation.

What? Emperor Cheeto doesn't want anyone with integrity in his Treasury Department.

Even the tiniest shred of integrity. I would speculate that Liu pulled his nomination in solidarity with the other four prosecutors.

Remember when we had a president who appointed a member of the opposite party as SecDef?

Must have been a 100 years ago.

She was a pretty terrible US Attorney, if you ask me. Awful record on hate/bias crime prosecutions during her tenure. Not crying for Jessie Liu.
