As the most reliable and balanced news aggregation service on the internet, DML News App offers the following information published by FOXNEWS.COM:
President Trump has withdrawn his nomination of Jessie Liu to serve as a top Treasury Department official, Fox News has learned.
The president’s move to withdraw Liu’s nomination comes just hours after four Justice Department lawyers quit following a move by senior leaders at the department to overrule the prosecutors’ judgment by seeking a lesser sentence for long-time Trump ally Roger Stone after he was found guilty of lying to Congress.
The article goes on to state the following:
Liu is a former U.S. Attorney for Washington, D.C., who before her nomination oversaw the prosecutions of Stone and former Trump national security adviser Michael Flynn over charges of false statements to the FBI.
CNN correspondent Kaitlan Collins reported in two tweets:
Trump has withdrawn the nomination of Jessie Liu to be Treasury Department’s undersecretary for terrorism & financial crimes, three sources confirm. She headed the office that oversaw Stone’s prosecution & one source not dismissing it’s connected to drama today. W/ @LauraAJarrett
Liu was informed this afternoon that the White House was withdrawing her nomination, per a person familiar, on the same day all four prosecutors quit the Stone case after DOJ overruled their recommendation. Her confirmation hearing was scheduled for this Thursday.
