He's a really good guy and well liked by just about everyone.
Folks will discuss the timing because of the on-going litigation regarding the Mar-a-Lago search. Currently all of the pleadings are being signed by Tony Gonzalez, who was the first assistant prosecutor under Ariana Fajardo Orshan, the previous U.S. Attorney who was selected by Trump. Once Lapointe is confirmed, he will be the local prosecutor in charge of the case. But, of course, the case is being overseen by the DOJ folks in D.C.
In any event, Lapointe isn't a political guy. He's right down the middle and is going to do what's right.
