The U.S. Senate has confirmed President Donald Trump’s nomination for U.S. attorney for the Eastern District of Wisconsin.
The Senate on Wednesday approved Trump’s pick, Matthew Krueger, who has worked in the U.S. Attorney’s Office since 2013 as an assistant U.S. attorney. Trump nominated Krueger in September, and the Senate Judiciary Committee gave him a favorable recommendation in January.
Krueger, who previously worked for Chicago-based Sidley Austin and the U.S. Solicitor General’s Office, earned his law degree from the University of Minnesota Law School in 2006.
He replaces U.S. Attorney Gregory Haanstad, who took over the spot when Jim Santelle retired in 2015.Follow @erikastrebel
