New Hampshire U.S. Attorney Among Obama Appointees Asked To Resign

Mar 14, 2017


  New Hampshire U.S. Attorney Emily Gray Rice has resigned.

Rice was among the 46 U.S. attorneys appointed by President Obama who were asked last week by the Trump administration to submit their resignations.

Rice was unanimously confirmed by the Senate in January of last year, after receiving the support of both Senator Jeanne Shaheen and then-Senator Kelly Ayotte.

In a statement, Rice said she was deeply honored to serve the people of New Hampshire.

First Assistant U.S. Attorney John J. Farley will serve as acting U.S. Attorney until a replacement is appointed.
