Crapo, Risch praise choice of Bart Davis as Idaho’s new U.S. Attorney

Idaho Sens. Mike Crapo and Jim Risch had high praise today for President Trump’s choice of Bart Davis as Idaho’s next U.S. Attorney; both Crapo and Risch are attorneys. Here are their full statements:


“With his extensive combination of leadership, legal scholarship and service, Bart embodies the sound legal judgment required to uphold the law while fairly and aggressively prosecuting those charged with crimes. A graduate of the University of Idaho College of Law, Bart has demonstrated his legal scholarship in his writings and through his service as a member of Idaho’s State Senate Judiciary and Rules Committee.  Bart has also built and maintained a long and distinguished legal career as an attorney in private practice.  Further, Bart has an established history of serving Idaho and the nation’s legal community through the Uniform Law Commission, and also in his service on the Council of State Governments, his work with the Congressional Coalition on Adoption, and the Idaho Judicial Conference.  I am committed to working with my Senate colleagues to move this nomination through the Judiciary Committee and to the full Senate. I congratulate Bart on his nomination to serve as Idaho’s U.S. Attorney.”


"I want to congratulate Bart Davis on his nomination to become Idaho's next U.S. Attorney. Senator Davis is a committed public servant who has my full confidence. I will work with my colleagues in the U.S. Senate to have his nomination confirmed as expeditiously as possible."
