The top federal prosecutor in Brooklyn is leaving his post for a job at the U.S. Justice Department in Washington.
Richard Donoghue, the U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of New York, told his staff Thursday that he will become the top deputy to Deputy Attorney General Jeffrey A. Rosen.
The change takes effect on Monday, said John Marzulli, a spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office.
The Justice Department later Friday posted a statement indicating that Attorney General William Barr had installed Seth D. DuCharme as acting United States attorney for the Eastern District. DuCharme acted as counsel to Barr from March to December 2019.
