Biden Nominated Attorney Gets Her Law License Suspended

( – A former Biden-endorsed U.S Attorney has been suspended from practicing law in the state of Massachusetts over failure to pay the appropriate license fees.

The setback is just one of the many bumps in the road Rachael Rollins has seen over the course of her career in recent years, after she resigned following a DOJ investigation into her conduct as a U.S. attorney for the Bay State.

Once endorsed by President Joe Biden, Rollins was then called a “national leader” when the president nominated her for U.S. attorney. However, Rollins became the subject of an investigation by the U.S. Department of Justice after allegations surfaced that she was committing unethical practices and was guilty of conduct unbecoming of an officer of the court. At issue were Rollins’ political activities that critics say showed undue bias for the Democratic Party.

Prior to her fall from grace, Rollins also served as district attorney for Massachusetts’ Suffolk County. Her appointment by Biden was lauded by liberal supporters as being “among President Biden’s smartest appointments,” according to a report from the Los Angeles Times.

Massachusetts Senators Ed Markey and Elizabeth Warren, who are both Democrats, also supported Rollins, calling her a “a great choice for U.S. Attorney,” adding that they were “proud” to recommend her for the Massachusetts U.S. Attorney position.

Rollins did assume the position, but was later found out to have committed ethics violations. She was also accused of giving false testimony under oath regarding her alleged leaking of sensitive information from the Department of Justice to the media in an effort to help a Democrat win an election.

According to the DOJ report, Rollins aided Ricado Arroyo during his campaign to get elected as Suffolk County district attorney and attempted to influence the election in his favor. The report also details a number of investigations into multiple misconduct allegations during Rollins’ tenure as Massachusetts U.S. attorney. The report concluded by saying that Rollins was found to have been in violation of multiple DOJ policies, federal regulations, ethical guidelines, and applicable law. The DOJ document also indicated that Rollins “fell far short of the standards of professionalism” of a U.S. attorney.
