Biden wants to end the death penalty. So why is his Justice Department trying to have Dzhokhar Tsarnaev put to death?

Northeastern University law professor Daniel Medwed says all is not yet lost, however. The Tsarnaev case is an idiosyncratic one, he says, spanning three administrations.
“The Department of Justice was not operating with a clean slate,” he said. “For other cases that might be eligible, my hope and anticipation is that Biden will not seek the death penalty, and will take steps to limit it.”
