Senate confirms Olson as U.S. Attorney for Idaho

Wendy Olson of Boise was confirmed June 21 by the Senate as the next U.S. Attorney for Idaho. Olson was recommended by Congressman Walt Minnick and nominated by the White House in March.

Idaho Sen. Mike Crapo called Olson to congratulate her on the confirmation.

“Ms. Olson has a distinguished track record of service already in the Idaho U.S. Attorney’s office and I am confident she will be a strong advocate for law enforcement in Idaho,” Crapo said. “I also want to salute outgoing U.S. Attorney Tom Moss for his service as well and know he will make the transition in the U.S. Attorney’s office a smooth one.”

“Wendy Olson has a background and the experience that makes her an excellent choice to serve as Idaho’s U.S. Attorney. I supported her nomination and am pleased that she has been confirmed by the U.S. Senate,” said Sen. Jim Risch, who voted for the confirmation.

“I congratulate Wendy Olson on her recent confirmation by the U.S. Senate,” Rep. Mike Simpson said. “She joins Idaho’s long list of superb U.S. Attorneys, including Tom Moss and Guy Hurlbutt. Wendy has exceptional qualifications and I am confident she will excel in this new role as well.”

“Wendy Olson’s confirmation is great news for our state,” Minnick said. “Her distinguished record and personal integrity make her an excellent choice. Wendy will continue Idaho’s tradition of first-rate US Attorneys, including her predecessor, Mr. Tom Moss. I thank him for his years of service.”
