Obama Names 4 DOJ Division Chiefs
President Barack Obama has named four chiefs of the Justice Department.
- David Kris is assistant AG for national security.
- Tony West is assistant AG for the Justice Department’s civil division.
- Lanny Breuer is assistant AG for Justice’s criminal division.
- Christine Varney is assistant AG for the antitrust division.
It's the criminal division, responsible for prosecuting crimes in our federal courts, that I'm interested in.
Breuer is a partner at the Washington law firm Covington and Burling, where attorney general-nominee Eric Holder also served as partner. He was special counsel to President Clinton and defended Clinton during his impeachment. New York Yankees pitcher Roger Clemens also hired Breuer last year to represent him during Congress’ investigation into the use of performance-enhancing drugs in professional baseball.
