Andrew Krause Quits SDNY
Update: It was not acting US Attorney Audrey Strauss who resigned from U.S. Attorney’s Office of the Southern District of New York but Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Krause. Krause was involved in several high profile cases including the prosecution of former Trump Campaign Manager Steve Bannon and war hero and triple amputee Brian Kolfage stemming from the “We Build The Wall” project.
Update: We have contacted the main office of the United States Attorney’s Office. The fellow who answered says to the best of his knowledge Ms. Strauss is not leaving. We have calls to the press office and to Andrew Krause.
A letter from Assistant United States Attorney Andrew Krause saying he is leaving the United States Attorney’s Office is flying around the web. It’s dated yesterday, Sept. 30. It says that he is terminating his involvement in The New York Times Co. vs U.S. Department of State and will be replaced by Assistant United States Attorney Lucas Issacharoff.
Many, including ourselves, misread it as Ms Strauss resigning. As acting U.S. Attorney, she runs the office.
The SDNY website has not announced any significant changes.
Here is the letter to Ms. Strauss from Krause found on the web:
