Federal prosecutor in Philadelphia resigns as Trump departs

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The top federal prosecutor in Philadelphia says he will step down next week when President Donald Trump leaves office. U.S. Attorney William McSwain said Thursday he plans to return to private practice. McSwain sparred frequently during his tenure with District Attorney Larry Krasner. McSwain blamed Krasner’s progressive policies for an uptick in gun violence and fought plans for a nonprofit group to open a medically supervised drug injection site. Kranser is an advocate of criminal justice reform. McSwain’s top deputy will step into the job until President-elect Joe Biden names a replacement.
