President Joe Biden on Tuesday nominated veteran prosecutor Damian Williams to be the U.S. attorney for Manhattan, which would put him in charge of one of the most high-profile federal prosecutor offices in the country.
Biden also announced seven other U.S. attorney nominations, including the Eastern District of New York as well as the Eastern and Western districts of Virginia.
If confirmed by the U.S. Senate, Williams would become the first Black man to oversee the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York. He currently serves as chief of a securities task force in that office.
