Federal Prosecutor Fired by Tramp Administration


Time: 10:23 p.m. CEST

One of the high-profile federal prosecutors was fired on Saturday after refusing to submit a letter of resignation, the Washington Post writes. “I did not resign,” Bharara posted on Twitter.

“Moments ago I was fired. Being the U.S. Attorney in SDNY will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life.” Acting deputy attorney general Dana Boente started to call 46 prosecutors asking for their resignations. “Such requests are a normal part of a transition of power from one administration to another, and about half of the 94 Obama-era U.S. attorneys had already left their jobs,” the Post writes.
