New Assistant Attorneys General

Posted on

CREDIT:

Four Assistant Attorney General slots filled today:

  • David Kris, Assistant Attorney General for National Security;
  • Tony West, Assistant Attorney General for Civil Division;
  • Lanny Breuer, Assistant Attorney General for Criminal;
  • Christine Varney, Assistant Attorney General for Antitrust.

Kris is probably the most interesting among these to a general audience. Apparently he’s written what looks to be a long-ass book called National Security Investigations and Prosecutions.
