Biden named Richard Sauber general counsel for Veteran Affairs
President Biden has nominated Richard Sauber to serve as the general counsel of the Department of Veterans Affairs. He is a skilled litigator who has tried dozens of criminal and civil fraud cases.
Before entering private practice, Sauber was a federal prosecutor and was appointed by President Reagan to form and lead the first multi-agency task force to concentrate on pursuing fraud in government contracts. In his career, Sauber has tried jury cases in New York, Washington, California, Texas, Florida and Oklahoma, and his appellate work includes arguing cases before the Supreme Court and ten of the U.S. Courts of Appeals. Sauber was an adjunct professor at Georgetown Law School and has served as general counsel for Freedom House.
