Barbara McQuade resigns as U.S. Attorney in Michigan

March 15, 2017: Barbara McQuade, a U.S. Attorney in Michigan, and John Vaudreuil, a U.S. Attorney in Wisconsin, have resigned and retired, respectively, in the wake of a request by U.S. Attorney Jeff Sessions and President Trump on Friday, March 10, 2017, for dozens of U.S. Attorneys to leave their offices. McQuade worked as a federal Prosecutor in Detroit for twelve years. She was previously the Deputy Chief of the office’s National Security Division. Vaudreuil joined the U.S. Department of Justice, which oversees U.S. Attorneys, thirty-seven years ago, just out of law school. He has been to more than twenty-five countries on behalf of the department, including Pakistan, Bangladesh and Russia, supporting democracy-building efforts.
