Scoop: Trump pulls former U.S. attorney for D.C.'s nomination to Treasury post

Source: Axios

President Trump is withdrawing his nomination for former U.S. attorney for D.C. Jessie Liu to serve as the Treasury Department's undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes, a top position overseeing economic sanctions, according to two sources with direct knowledge.

The big picture: Liu was confirmed in September 2017 to lead the largest U.S. attorney's office in the country, overseeing a number of politically charged investigations that included the case against Trump associates Roger Stone, Paul Manafort and other spinoffs from the Mueller investigation.

Liu stepped down from the U.S. attorney's office after Trump announced his intention to nominate her to the Treasury position in December 2019.

She was replaced by Timothy Shea, who is currently serving on an interim basis.

1. I Didn't Understand The Move In The First Place As It Made No Sense

Shea, who is a stooge of Barr, was needed in that position so the firing of Liu was simply a 2-step process. That was needed in order to shut down the investigations of Trump and associates of Trump and 6 investigations have been shut down. The plan is working to perfection. The purge is picking up steam but Liu was never going to get that job in Treasury. It was a total sham.
