President Joe Biden is getting bipartisan backlash for forcing a federal prosecutor in Illinois to resign.
U.S. Attorney John Lausch was appointed in 2017 by former President Donald Trump, and is being asked to leaving his position along with all but two Trump attorney appointees by the end of this month, The Washington Free Beacon reported.
Lausch was assigned to prosecute the allies of Illinois’ notorious Democratic state legislator, Mike Madigan.
