What is wrong with this picture?

William Weinreb, the acting U.S. attorney in Boston, wants President Trump to give him the top federal prosecutor’s job here permanently.

Are you kidding me? Let’s look at the big money Weinreb, a card-carrying moonbat, has been duking to Democrats — never a Republican pol, always Democrats. All of the following comes directly from the website of the Federal Elections Commission (FEC):

Last Oct. 10, Weinreb wrote a $1,000 check to Hillary for America.

On Oct. 7, 2012, he wrote a $1,000 check to then-Senate candidate Elizabeth Warren, the fake Indian.

One day later, he whipped out his checkbook again and wrote a $1,000 check to the Obama/Biden re-election campaign.

And back on Sept. 6, 2008, Weinreb maxed out to the first Obama presidential campaign with a $2,300 check.

If Trump and Attorney General Jeff Sessions want to drain the swamp, why would they possibly appoint as the top prosecutor in Boston somebody who’s been eagerly funneling thousands of dollars in cash to the absolute dregs of said swamp?

On the state level, Weinreb has also ponied up to some of the local swamp things. In 2010, he gave $500 to then-Governor’s Councilor Michael Albano, the former mayor of Springfield, whose local newspaper described Albano’s City Hall “tenure as marked by corruption and financial disarray.”

In 2006, Weinreb handed $200 to Gerry Leone, then the district attorney of Middlesex County. In 2013, Leone was one of the listed character witnesses at the judicial-nomination hearings of Mary Beth Heffernan, the second-generation hack judge who last week reduced the bail of a once-deported alleged rapist of a Boston College student from the $100,000 requested by the prosecutor to $2,500, after which the man vanished.

Weinreb was the acting U.S. attorney last winter when the feds busted a three-state ring of alleged heroin/fentanyl dealers here. Even though the DEA’s supporting affidavit identified at least six of them as Dominican illegal immigrants, Weinreb’s press release declined to point out their immigration status. It’s just not politically correct, especially if you’re from Newton.

After repeated inquiries, Weinreb’s office finally acknowledged that at least 10 of the 23 indicted drug dealers were illegal immigrants from the Dominican.

Not everybody in the U.S. attorney’s office is a moonbat. Surely the DOJ can find somebody who sincerely wants to lock up hacks, illegal immigrants and assorted other Democrats instead of handing them an all-expenses-paid weekend at the Ritz.

Sessions used to serve with Frank McNamara, the former U.S. attorney here. If you want to season some younger fed here for a while, I’ll bet Frank would take the reins for a year or two. Plus, McNamara worked hard last year for Trump, not Hillary.

Which is more than the current acting U.S. attorney in Boston can say.
