US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, Fired by Trump Administration

Earlier today, word came out that the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara, was going to refuse to honor the resignation request from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions had asked (basically told) all Obama-era US Attorney to get the hell out. This is common and fully in line with the authority of the attorney general, and by extension, the President of the United States.

Even though I respect some of the work Bharara has done, I made this comment in response…

Well, you’ll never guess what just happened!

Bharara is probably going to use this in order to run for Mayor of New York City, or some other public office. After all, getting shitcanned by the Trump administration is not exactly a bad thing to have on your résumé if you’re a Democrat politician. Still, this was the right call. Preet thought he had some kind of leverage when he clearly did not. US Attorneys serve at the pleasure of the attorney general and the president. If they want you gone, you’re gone.

Pretty simple stuff.

    Maybe instead of whining about it, respect the new administrations wishes. Bill Clinton sacked the whole lot of lawyers at the start of his first term but I think that was for him hating any lawyers that were better than him…which is basically all of them.

  • I did not resign. Moments ago I was fired. Being the US Attorney in SDNY will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life.

    Translation: “I kicked an screamed and held my breath until I turned blue, but they still fired me. Can you believe it?”

    Considering all the bullshit that has happened I don’t blame them for sacking these people. Hell you have Secret Service members saying they wouldn’t protect Trump and you have some Obama remnants along with the CIA still having a hand in the government behind the scenes.

    As annoying as these clowns are for not seeing the writing on the wall and resigning it is really enjoyable watching them get shitcanned. The Obummer cancer must be cut out of the DoJ.

    Sessions himself was fired by Clinton. It’s just a part of the transition of power.
