Byung “BJay” Pak, a U.S. attorney in Georgia, resigns under pressure from Donald Trump to investigate alleged voter fraud.
In the hours before he resigned, acting deputy attorney general Richard Donoghue warned Pak that Trump is intensely fixated on his office and that “it might not be tenable for him to continue to lead it,” according to The New York Times.
The Times’ reporting suggests that Donoghue may have worried Pak would become a fresh victim of Trump’s Twitter tirades or be accused by the president of being a player in the election fraud conspiracy.
Pak is the country’s first Korean American federal attorney.
