Brown Named Acting Attorney for Central District

Sandra R. Brown has been named the Acting United States Attorney for the Central District of California, becoming the top federal law enforcement official in the most populous federal district in the nation.

Ms. Brown took charge of the office on Saturday after former United States Attorney Eileen M. Decker resigned her position.

With approximately 270 attorneys, the United States Attorney’s Office for the Central District is the largest Justice Department office outside of Washington D.C. The Central District of California is made up of seven counties – Los Angeles, Orange, Riverside, San Bernardino, Ventura, Santa Barbara and San Luis Obispo – and is home to approximately 20 million residents.

For the past year, Ms. Brown was the First Assistant United States Attorney – the number two position in the office. She has been with the United States Attorney’s Office since 1991, and she was Chief of the Tax Division from 2004 through 2016.

“It is a true honor and privilege to lead the United States Attorney’s Office, home to the nation’s finest prosecutors and staff,” Ms. Brown said. “Over the past 25 years, I have seen firsthand the dedication, outstanding abilities and contributions of the men and women who represent the United States. We will continue our important work, which includes civil and tax litigation; defending the rights of both the government and its agents; and fighting national security threats, violent and organized crime, drug trafficking, hate crimes, financial fraud, public corruption, crimes against children, and the myriad of other threats to our public safety. I look forward to leading the office as we prosecute and defend some of the most important cases in the country.”

As an Assistant United States Attorney, Ms. Brown represented the government in a wide range of matters in federal and state courts, including criminal, civil, appellate and bankruptcy matters.

Is this another Trump force out at 2nd base deal where Eileen M. Decker was told she was fired or she could resign?

It sure sounds like it as Trump works to cleanse the entire Justice Department of any people who would ever rule against him, his family or his billionaire donors.

Bites, doesn't it?

Yup! About half of the US Attorneys had already resigned and the other half were told by Jeff Sessions to resign or be fired.

This is routine practice. BC, GB and BO did it too.

It may be a routine practice, but the method used here is very different. Usually it is staggered over time so as not to disrupt the case load and the outcomes in a drastic way. Forcing 46 AG's to resign at the same moment is not exactly a peaceful transition.

Yes, its Trumps handiwork.

Karma will catch up with him soon, his family and supporters sooner than later...

Wonder how many Republicans are too scared of Putin to pull the trigger and torpedo Trump now...
