US Attorney Preet Bharara Tweets That He Has Been Fired
Attorney General Jeff Sessions' request that Obama-appointed attorneys quit was met with shock and dismay by pundits, many of whom argued Friday night that doing so was a poor decision.
Donald Trump got to say one of his favorite phrases to USA attorney Preet Bharara: "You're fired!"
During Obama's tenure he appointed 93 new U.S. Attorney's, but up until earlier this week, only 46 of them remained in their positions for various reasons.
Bharara's former district includes President Trump's NY residence and offices in Trump Tower.
Bharara's deputy Joon H. Kim will serve as acting U.S. Attorney, Bharara said. According to Buzzfeed News' Chris Geidner and Zoe Tillman, new presidents tend to replace most USA attorneys, but usually not so quickly, and not before successors have been nominated or confirmed. "Being the US Attorney in SDNY will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life". "When the US attorney steps down, the first assistant USA attorney becomes the acting (executive)".
U.S. Attorney Mark Green for the Eastern District of Oklahoma in Muskogee could not be reached for comment. "I look forward to working with the administration to ensure a smooth transition and ensuring that our newly appointed and reappointed U.S. Attorneys are on the job as soon as is reasonably possible".

The U.S. attorney position in the Western District of Oklahoma in Oklahoma City is vacant and now filled by Acting U.S. Attorney Mark Yancey.
"The way the Obama administration handled it was appropriate and respectful and classy", he said. Presidents generally appoint federal prosecutors based on recommendations from home-state senators, and Sens. They report to Justice Department leadership in Washington, and their priorities are expected to be in line with those of the attorney general. The demand for resignations seems a way to ensure he will have a team of new federal prosecutors more likely to share his agenda.
Former members of the polygamous Fundamentalist Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and their sympathizers also expressed surprise when a large-scale investigation of food stamp fraud that allegedly diverted more than $12 million for unapproved uses ended in misdemeanor convictions without prison time or fines for almost all the defendants.
