Biden’s top lawyer LEAVES White House as Republicans plan investigations
Biden’s top attorney LEAVES White House after more than a year and a half with Republicans planning their investigation as they retake the House and West Wing exodus grows
- White House Attorney Dana Remus Leaves Administration
- She will be replaced by Deputy White House attorney Stuart Delery
- Keisha Lance Bottoms to join the administration as the president’s senior advisor on public engagement
- Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) Introduced Biden Impeachment Resolution
- Republicans Promise to Investigate Hunter Biden and Other Subjects If They Take Control of the House
White House counsel Dana Remus is preparing to leave her post next month — as the president’s legal team must prepare for the possibility of aggressive Republican investigations or even a GOP impeachment lawsuit.
As the head of a team of White House attorneys, Dana Remus has helped the president understand the uses and limits of executive power on matters like gun control, while helping direct sensitive cases by authorizing the National Archives to turn over data from the Trump era to the House Jan. 6 committee.

She also helped oversee the selection and confirmation of Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson to the U.S. Supreme Court.
She will be succeeded by her deputy, Stuart Delery, who served with the Justice Department in the Obama administration, according to the White House.
White House lawyers are sure to have their hands full if Republicans take over the House or Senate, with polls showing Biden has weak approval even as he faces rising historical trends.
House Republicans publicly pledge to investigate Biden, and 147 of them voted Jan. 6 not to accept state-certified votes.
Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene (R-Ga.) has filed an impeachment resolution from Biden, saying he abused “the power” of his office when he was vice president. Rep. Andrew Clyde (R-Ga.) says Republicans have already drafted articles of impeachment against Secretary of Homeland Security Alejandro Mayorkas.

“The House Oversight Committee will be with Hunter Biden everywhere,” promised Rep. James Comer (R-Ky.), who would take over the powerful investigative panel if Republicans won the House majority.
Delery’ has advised on key policy priorities, including the COVID-19 response, the US bailout plan and the two-pronged infrastructure framework.
In another personnel movement, the White House announced that Keisha Lance Bottoms will join the administration as the President’s Senior Advisor on Public Engagement.
Bottoms is the former mayor of Atlanta and current CNN commentator – in just the latest case of back and forth between the White House and the cable media. She becomes senior advisor to the president on public engagement.
White House Press Secretary Jen Psaki left to join MSNBC.
“She is a visionary leader in advancing equitable outcomes at the forefront of government and commerce,” the White House said. She advised his campaign and was on his shortlist for vice president.
