US legal professional for Western District of Missouri resigns

US attorney for Western District of Missouri resigns

The US Department of Justice this week asked US attorneys appointed by former President Donald Trump to submit their resignation. One of them is the US attorney for the western district of Missouri.

Tim Garrison said in a press release Thursday that he had sent a letter to President Joe Biden informing him that he would submit his resignation.

Garrison was appointed provisional U.S. attorney on January 3, 2018, and began serving as U.S. attorney for the district on April 26, 2018, following unanimous approval by the U.S. Senate.

Garrison wrote to Biden that he would prepare a smooth transition for the president’s candidate to fill the post. There was not a word about when a new US attorney would be announced.
