Let The Swamp Draining Begin, AG Sessions Had One Word For 46 Attorneys: RESIGN!
As of Friday the Justice Department announced that 46 U.S. attorneys that served under former President Barack Obama have been asked by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to stand down from their positions and follow in the foot steps of 47 of their counterparts and step down. This may have been an attempt to create a more uniform transition lined with officials that unifies behind the Trump administration. To insure that there's no energy of disdain filling the air among Obama’s Operatives, Sessions as of now is seeking to tender the resignation of the remaining 46 U.S. Attorneys that worked under the Obama administration.
A spokesperson from the Department of Justice, Peter Carr, stated that "The President informed Dana Boente and Rod Roesenstein that he will not accept their resignations, and that they will remain in their current positions but " No such word was given to Preet Bharara, the US Attorney General for the Southern District of New York. Bharara met with Trump in November 2016 and agreed to stay on in his current capacity as the Manhattan US attorney, a position granted to him by former President Barack Obama in 2009.
