Joanne Karen Schwartz Wiki – Biography
Joanne Karen Schwartz is the wife of Geoffrey Berman, an American attorney. She is an associate in New York at Arnold & Porter, the Washington law firm. She graduated from Cornell University, where she was elected to Phi Beta Kappa, and received a law degree from New York University.
The row between the attorney general and the top federal prosecutor in Manhattan began on Friday night when Mr. Barr issued a press release announcing that Mr. Berman was “stepping down” after two-and-a-half years in the post. Mr. Berman had “done an excellent job”, achieving “many successes on consequential civil and criminal matters”, Mr. Barr said.
He added that the president intended to nominate Securities and Exchange Commission chairman Jay Clayton, who has never served as a federal prosecutor, as Mr. Berman’s successor. Not long afterward, Mr. Berman issued his own statement, saying he had learned he was “stepping down” from the press release.
“I have not resigned, and have no intention of resigning my position,” he added. “I will step down when a presidentially appointed nominee is confirmed by the Senate.”
Mr. Barr’s announcement appeared to surprise the Republican chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, Lindsey Graham. He who said that Mr. Clayton’s nomination would still have to be approved by New York’s two Senators, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand, who are both Democrats.
Senator Schumer tweeted: “This late Friday night dismissal reeks of potential corruption of the legal process. What is angering President Trump? A previous action by this US Attorney or one that is ongoing?”
