Durbin, Duckworth Get Trump’s U.S. Attorney Choice 

(Washington, DC) — Senators Dick Durbin and Tammy Duckworth are learning today whom President Trump is nominating for U.S. Attorney for Chicago. The name hasn’t been released yet, but the four finalists reportedly include former Chicago federal prosecutors John Lausch, Michael Scudder and Andrew Porter. Once the Senators get the paperwork from the White House, a screening committee they formed in May will vet the candidate and forward their recommendation to Durbin and Duckworth, who have the ability to block it.
