The Senate Judiciary Committee has just approved Zachary Terwilliger to be US Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.
Terwilliger was endorsed by both Virginia Senators and nominated by President Trump.
“This means that Zachary Terwilliger will be confirmed as the US attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia.”
Carl Tobias, Law Professor at the University of Richmond says the court deals in high-profile cases.
“Just this week, Manafort, the Russian hackers and Microsoft. In the past, Congressman Jefferson hiding 90 thousand dollars in the freezer, Michael Vick and dogfighting, Moussaoui in 911 attacks.”
As the court’s chief federal law enforcement officer, Terwilliger leads a staff of 250 and the litigation of all civil matters in which the United States has an interest.
He has served as interim since May 25th.
