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.

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.

What part of "appointed to serve at the president's pleasure" does this fool not understand?
This certainly proves that he was in fact disloyal and adverserial to Trump.

He is a political appointee and serves at the pleasure of the President. Clinton fired 93 of 94 US attorneys.
While he is / was awesome going after corruption he chose to handle it poorly.

Yep. After Trump asked him to stay on. Maybe Trump forgot.
This whole mass firing was a poor idea.
Reagan took 2 years to to do this and I don't think it was every last one.
Trump is the only one to demand this on a Friday and give them until midnight to get out.
But, Trump still whips about in a china shop breaking stuff and people's lives.

ee that. Trump is the fascist dictator/emperor. Just such hypocrisy.
The fact that people demonize Trump over this media starved Obama stooge creating a story further proves the political hypocrisy of liberals and democrats.
Do you any of the 93 that Clinton actually fired in one day nonetheless wanted to keep their jobs?
