For weeks, Kevin O'Connor was the quiet Trump campaign transition leader for the Department of Justice. O'Connor is the managing director and general counsel of Point72 Asset Management, hedge fund billionaire Steve Cohen's private firm.
He also worked for the law firm Bracewell & Giuliani (as in Rudy) and for the Justice Department under President George Bush.
O'Connor's appointment was likely to attract both praise for his deep knowledge of the Department of Justice, and criticism for his role at the side of a billionaire whose firm was involved in a massive insider trading case.
But never mind all that, because O'Connor is gone.
