Minnesota's top federal prosecutor to heed Biden's call for resignation


February 10, 2021

Erica MacDonald, formerly an assistant U.S. attorney, served as a Dakota County district court judge for nearly a decade.

Minnesota's top federal prosecutor plans to resign her post by the end of the month, following President Joe Biden's call for U.S. attorneys across the nation to make way for new blood, a spokeswoman confirmed Tuesday.

Erica MacDonald, an appointee of former President Donald Trump, was sworn in as Minnesota U.S. attorney in 2018, more than a year after the forced resignation of Obama-appointee Andrew Luger.

The Department of Justice will appoint an interim prosecutor while a search committee, led by Minnesota Sens. Amy Klobuchar and Tina Smith, finds replacement nominees for the state's U.S. attorney and U.S. marshal spots.
