Christine resigns as U.S. attorney for North Georgia

Though Trump didn’t say Pak’s name, he repeated debunked accusations of voter fraud in Georgia, including in Fulton County. The Northern District of Georgia that Pak served includes both Atlanta and Fulton. Trump had appointed Pak to the position.

Pak did not give a reason for his sudden resignation, but he said he was grateful for the chance to have served in the position. Pak has rejoined the Atlanta office of Alston & Bird, where he began his career in private practice in 2000.

After Pak’s resignation, Trump named Christine the acting U.S. attorney for North Georgia.
