Trump Withdraws Treasury Nomination Of Former US Attorney Jessie Liu – Who Oversaw Flynn, Stone Cases

February 12, 2020   |   by James G. Dalton

President Trump withdrew the nomination of former US attorney for DC, Jessie Liu to the #3 spot at the Treasury – which she quit her job last month in anticipation of.

Liu oversaw several politically charged prosecutions, including Trump associates Roger Stone, Michael Flynn, Paul Manafort and others, according to Axios, following a scoop by OAN‘s Jack Posobiec.

The move comes hours after four prosecutors in the Roger Stone case tendered their resignations because the DOJ rejected their absurdly punitive sentencing recommendations in Stone’s case.

Liu was confirmed in September 2017 to oversee the DC US attorney’s office, and was expected to stay through her nomination. Instead, she was unexpectedly informed last month that she would be replaced by Attorney General Bill Barr’s close adviser, Timothy Shea, per Axios – which adds that her withdrawn nomination to the Treasury Department’s undersecretary for terrorism and financial crimes was the “president’s call,” according to a former administration official familiar with the situation.

On top of that, Liu came under fire last week for declining to press charges against two U.S. Park Police officers who fatally shot a harmless and unarmed driver four times in the head.

The Conservative Treehouse has covered Liu extensively. Read more about her here.

In short – the swamp just got a little lower.

    Thank heaven. President Trump is on top of all that keeps his administration running like a well-tuned clock. It’s high time the wheels of justice began moving in the right direction. Just keep it up so that swamp will continue to lower.

        Lesson learned. When the opposite party takes over the executive branch, replace everyone with honest people for your party. (Speaking mainly going from Dems to GOP).

    “the swamp just got a little lower” … Meaning? The slimey water got lower? Or less alligators and other vermin? Was Liu a dumb Dem? Or was it withdrawn because she did not prosecute the Park Police officer? Or was she buddies with the Stone prosecutors? Hard to figure out what is going on here! The pool of qualified candidates for these government jobs must be getting small as our fearless leader keeps firing them all! Well, just hire someone from 5th Ave … doesn’t matter. If Barr is qualified, then a lot of other people are! Seig Heil!!! MAGA, mannnn, as Mr David might say ….

    It is great to see that he . President Trump is doing his homework on the over persecution of roger stone. Mr Flynn and Paul Manafort and how they were treated so badly.
    She had a part in it . She deserves not to get a job in the Trump administration.
    God bless Donald Trump and his cany abilities about people and can see what they are about and not let them burrow in and make his work harder for making the country greater than ever before.
    She should be investigated to see what else she was involved with his troubles with his administration and trying to get things done for our country.
    This man is a miracle worker and getting things done even when the dummycrates are constantly up his ass looking for something all the time.
    The dummycrates don’t have a license to practice medicine by doing a proctology on president Trump as much as they have.
    He should clean house in every department of past Obama hold overs and from the Clinton administration as well .
    Then go after the Democrats who are involved with the overthrow of his election that we put him in fair and square.
    Trump 2020 .
    Hey dummycrates get over it .
    I hope Adam Schiff will be recalled from Congress.

      All the people that got boned during the hoax should’ve been released from jail now! Their cases should be dismissed with extreme prejudice. With no double jeopardy anything crap. The case for impeachment was fabricated, The Mueller case was fabricated. Any US Judge should see this and do the right thing

    75% of the people living in DC are making the swamp. It would be hard to drain it. President Trump, fire all the TRAITORS bo the TRAITOR put in. When the idiots have lost their asinine leaders, those worthless DEMONRATS, the small rats will destroy each other. Thank to their stupidity and lack of common sense.

    I love this story! Those who are of the deep state are appointed or hired, not voted for nor accountable to U.S. Citizens, and usually, the only way to get rid of them is to eliminate their position – they are no longer needed. Trump is very smart, and his focus, for now, is getting rid of deep state positions who are not loyal to the U.S.A. Constitution, the citizens who duly elected Trump, and now they just sit back **waiting** and doing nothing – “on the job” for dems to gain control. LOL* Trump is simply eliminating positions, the many many hires and appointees under his rule will be the deep state for the dems eventually! Gotta love his logic!

    I heartily agree with all of the above comments. It’s reassuring to know there are so many smart people who share my opinions. The miracle of Donald Trump’s election has rescued America for a few precious years. Only a true hero could handle so many issues at once while being constantly harassed by deranged mobs. By sharing Trump’s vision, conservatives have helped create an especially consequential moment in American history.
