The US Justice Department announced that Schneider will continue to carry out his duties till the 1st of February after which Mohsin will assume the empty seat under the Vacancies Reform Act.

Mohsin expressed her gratitude stating that she is honored and will make sure that she does everything in her power to uphold the law, act impartial and be fair to all seeking justice.
