U.S. Attorney Durham Announces Departure from Office

After serving as the United States Attorney for the District of Connecticut for more than three years, and as a federal prosecutor in Connecticut for more than 38 years, John H. Durham today announced his resignation from the U.S. Attorney’s Office, effective at midnight on February 28.

“My career has been as fulfilling as I could ever have imagined when I graduated from law school way back in 1975,” said U.S. Attorney Durham. “Much of that fulfillment has come from all the people with whom I’ve been blessed to share this workplace, and in our partner law enforcement agencies. My love and respect for this Office and the vitally important work done here have never diminished. It has been a tremendous honor to serve as U.S. Attorney, and as a career prosecutor before that, and I will sorely miss it.”

Prior to his appointment as an interim U.S. Attorney in November 2017 and subsequently as the presidentially appointed U.S. Attorney in February 2018, Mr. Durham served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney in various positions in the District of Connecticut for 35 years, prosecuting complex organized crime, violent crime, public corruption and financial fraud matters. From 1978 to 1982, he served as an Assistant State’s Attorney in the New Haven State’s Attorney’s Office, and from 1977 to 1978, he served as a Deputy Assistant State’s Attorney in the Office of the Chief State’s Attorney.

First Assistant U.S. Attorney Leonard C Boyle will serve as Acting U.S. Attorney upon Mr. Durham’s departure.

“The Office will be in the extraordinarily capable hands of Len and our superb supervisory team who, together, guarantee that the proper administration of justice will continue uninterrupted in our District.”

Mr. Boyle has served as First Assistant U.S. Attorney since June 2018, when he returned to the U.S. Attorney’s Office after serving as Deputy Chief State’s Attorney in Connecticut for approximately nine years. He previously served in the U.S. Attorney’s Office from 1986 to 1998, and from 1999 to 2004.

Mr. Boyle is the 53rd U.S. Attorney for the District of Connecticut, an office that was established in 1789.

The U.S. Attorney’s Office is charged with enforcing federal criminal laws in Connecticut and representing the federal government in civil litigation. The Office is composed of approximately 68 Assistant U.S. Attorneys and approximately 54 staff members at offices in New Haven, Hartford and Bridgeport.

John Durham:

He was asked to resign by the Biden Administration. This is a usual request when an Administration changes. He is still a Special Prosecutor, His insurance policy, a CYA for leverage against the DNC/Communist, Let's see what his next move is. Guest appearance on FOX News or CNN ? may-be a BOOK ? The Durham Report? looks like a chess game and we will have to wait & see who makes the next move?

You are correct, it's not out of the norm when a new administration comes in. Regardless of that many tie this resignation with his role as Special Prosecutor.

My understanding is it is routine for all US attorneys to get the axe with a new administration. Special prosecutors do not usually get the same treatment least inappropriate intervention be apparent.

for those of you dismissing this as "routine," how do you explain his dismissal while digging into the shenanigans of the current POTUS when he was Vice during the last administration and their attempted coup?

Insert Trump's name in there instead of Biden's and see if this would quietly pass in the night.

There is that tid bit, but any US Attorney serves at the pleasure of whatever administration. Do recall that the Bush II administration dismissed (7) US attorneys back in December 2006 under similar circumstances. For the time being despite Durham's resignation he still remains the Special Council of the Trump/Russia Probe.

If Trump had been involved in similar, there would likely be a media melt down and a third impeachment proceeding.

What's to say there won't still be a third impeachment?
They can still hold another investigation to cover their fabrication of evidence - then, Bang! Pow! Boom! - we use the next batch of lies to roll right back into another episode of impeachment proceedings.

I'm expecting to hear the next mentions of impeachment start popping up in the media right about the time of the 2022 midterm election announcements. Gotta get the impeachment word out to try and taint anyone that wants to use Trump's support to unseat a democrat. 2022 is going to be an uphill battle - with all the soon to occur election law changes. Who knows, the harris administration may have already banned conservatism by them
