拜登落后于特朗普, 奥巴马和布什拖拖拉拉任命总检察长

总统当选人拜登 has parted ways with years of presidential precedent by not picking an attorney general by the end of the election year.

Former President Obama announced Eric Holder on Dec. 1, 2008, and former President George W. Bush announced John Ashcroft on Dec. 22, 2000.

Bush carried over Reagan-era Attorney General Richard Thornburgh to start his term. Bush had been former President Ronald Reagan’s vice president.

The Biden-Harris transition team did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Lagging over the president-elect’s pick is also a potential federal case against his son, 猎人拜登, over his tax affairs.
