The White House has nominated U.S. Attorney for the District of Columbia Kenneth Wainstein to head the Justice Department’s recently authorized National Security Division.

If confirmed by the Senate, Wainstein will take charge of a division that will stand at the forefront of the government’s fight against terrorism.
