AG Jeff Sessions asks Remaining 46 U.S. Attorneys to Resign

President Donald Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asked for the resignations of 46 U S Attorneys. This is not unusual nor is it unprecedented. These were all political appointees by former President Obama. Some of us will wonder why it took so long and others will question motives. Don’t trust or pay attention to those others, they have only a political agenda.

As Written, Reported by and seen first on Fox News:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asked the remaining 46 U.S. attorneys to resign, the Justice Department announced Friday.

The department said some attorneys, as in prior transitions, already had left the department. The statement said, “the Attorney General has now asked the remaining 46 presidentially appointed U.S. Attorneys to tender their resignations in order to ensure a uniform transition.”

“Until the new U.S. Attorneys are confirmed, the dedicated career prosecutors in our U.S. Attorney’s Offices will continue the great work of the Department in investigating, prosecuting, and deterring the most violent offenders,” the statement added.

It is not unprecedented for an incoming administration to replace most U.S. attorneys during the first year.

Sessions’ actions, though, are being closely scrutinized by Democrats after a rocky start to the AG’s time at the DOJ…….
