Lankford, Mullin, Inhofe praise U.S. Attorney nominee

Senators James Lankford, R-Oklahoma, and Jim Inhofe, R-Oklahoma, applauded President Trump’s nomination of Brian J. Kuester for U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Oklahoma.

“Brian Kuester has dedicated his career to public service. He has served in his community as a police officer, district attorney and now future U.S. Attorney,” said Lankford. “I congratulate Brian on his nomination, and I look forward to his confirmation in the days ahead.”

“Brian Kuester, President Trump’s nominee for U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Oklahoma, is a great candidate to serve in this role,” Inhofe said. “Since 2011, Mr. Kuester has served as the district attorney for Oklahoma’s 27th District and has a proven track record that is fair and ethical while upholding the highest standard of the law. Mr. Kuester is a good and honest Oklahoman and I look forward to confirming him in the Senate and working with him in his new role.”

U.S. Rep. Markwayne Mullin, R-Oklahoma, also praised the nomination.

“President Trump made an excellent choice in nominating Brian Kuester as the Eastern District of Oklahoma’s next U.S. Attorney,” Mullin said.  “I worked closely with Brian when he was the District Attorney for Adair, Cherokee, Sequoyah and Wagoner counties and I am confident he will serve the people of Eastern Oklahoma with the same high ethical and moral standards in his new role.  I look forward to the Senate’s confirmation of Brian so that he can continue his long-serving mission of upholding the rule of law fairly and justly for all Oklahomans in the Eastern District.”
