Justice Dept. picks new head for public integrity unit
By The Post's Justice Department correspondent Carrie Johnson:
Justice Department officials have selected a new leader for the public integrity unit, a special corps of prosecutors who investigate corruption in police departments, the judiciary and Congress, according to two department sources.
The job has been offered to Jack Smith, a career department prosecutor from Brooklyn who in recent years has supervised sensitive investigations of foreign officials at the International Criminal Court in The Hague, Netherlands, the sources said.
Raymond Hulser, a longtime prosecutor at the department, has been chosen to serve as the principal deputy, the sources said.
Assistant Attorney General Lanny Breuer, who leads the criminal division, could announce the move later Thursday, subject to administrative approvals.
