Biden picks former New Jersey attorney general to lead DEA

Source: Washington Post

President Biden has selected Anne Milgram, a former state attorney general, prosecutor and longtime advocate for reform of the criminal justice system, to lead the Drug Enforcement Administration, the White House announced on Monday.

Milgram, who once declared, “there’s no system that is more old-school and broken and problematic than the criminal justice system,” currently works as a lawyer in private practice, and as a law professor and podcaster.

Milgram did not respond to a request for comment. The Washington Post first reported Milgram’s selection.

The DEA has been without a Senate-confirmed leader since the Obama administration. Former president Donald Trump relied on several acting administrators to steer the roughly $3 billion agency, which investigates violations of the nation’s drug laws.

1. She served briefly under both Jon Corzine and Crispy Creme as AG of NJ



Also at the very bottom of the OP article is mention of the nomination of Kenneth A. Polite Jr. to head up DOJ's Criminal Division (a pretty critical office).



During his career, he had been the U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Louisiana during Obama's 2nd term.
