Does this new development have anything to do with the election farce? I doubt it. But the timing is certainly interesting.
According to Politico,
President Donald Trump has replaced the top federal prosecutor in Atlanta with another Trump-appointed prosecutor from southern Georgia, bypassing a top career prosecutor.
Trump’s move came after the U.S. attorney in Atlanta, Byung “BJay” Pak, abruptly resigned Monday. Justice Department officials have declined to say whether Pak resigned voluntarily or was asked to do so.
Definitely interesting, given that Pak was expected to serve through inauguration day; Trump’s second inauguration day.
For those wondering, Trump appointed Pak.
But that doesn’t mean that Trump actually knew Pak. For all we know, Pak could be a swamp rat recommended by another swamp rat. Because far too many “Republicans” tried to sabotage Trump with swamp rat recommendations.

U.S. Attorney for Southern District of Georgia Bobby Christine said on his office’s website that he was named as the acting U.S. attorney in Atlanta on Monday “by written order of the President.” Christine, a former state prosecutor and magistrate, has served as the senate-confirmed U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Georgia, which includes the cities of Savannah and Augusta.
In tapping Christine, Trump bypassed the prosecutor who would normally take over on an acting basis in the event of an emergency or sudden vacancy, First Assistant U.S. Attorney Kurt Erskine.
I tried to research Kurt Erskine, but little info exists except his resume. But I was able to find out more about Christine.
Christine is an Iraq War veteran and holds several military honors, including the Bronze Star and Meritorious Service Medal. And is a brigadier general in the National Guard. So a military loyalist, likely hand-picked by Trump’s trusted advisors.

A White House spokesperson referred questions about the shuffle back to the Department of Justice.
Trump’s installation of a new leader in the U.S. attorney’s office in Georgia’s largest city comes as he continues to rail against the Justice Department and the Federal Bureau of Investigation for failing to move aggressively against what he has baselessly alleged was rampant fraud in the November election in Georgia and in other swing states.
Georgia election officials have rebutted Trump’s claims in detail. In addition, former Attorney General Bill Barr said late last year that he saw no evidence of widespread fraud that could have affected the outcome of the election. Barr declined to appoint a special counsel to investigate such claims before he resigned last month.
U.S. attorneys are typically replaced following a change in presidential administrations and some do leave in advance of the formal transfer of power. Pak had been expected to stay on through Inauguration Day.
Pak’s resignation and Christine’s assignment were first reported by Talking Points Memo, which quoted an internal memo from Pak attributing his hasty departure to “unforeseen circumstances.” As of mid-morning Tuesday, the “Meet the U.S. Attorney” web page that used to contain Pak’s biography simply said “will be added shortly.”
Pak’s resignation came a day after the release of an explosive audio recording of a telephone call in which Trump berated Georgia Secretary of State Brad Raffensperger, repeatedly raising specious claims of election fraud and insisting that the Republican official change the vote counts to show that Trump won.
I guess leftists were shocked that Trump didn’t just “go gently into that good night.” Instead, he definitely raged “against the dying of the light.” And I can say with certainty that Patriots expected nothing less.
