WASHINGTON (KLKN) — U.S. Attorney for the District of Nebraska, Joe Kelly, has resigned from his position effective Feb. 28.

Kelly was initially appointed by former-President Donald Trump and confirmed the Senate. He served more than three years.

The Department of Justice and President Joe Biden have asked for the resignations of all U.S. Attorneys by the end of February. The Biden Administration will begin the process of replacing them.

Until a successor is confirmed, an acting attorney will be designated by the Department of Justice.
