Trumps asks for resignation of US Attorney A. Lee Bentley III
A fracas began Friday night when 46 Obama-era US attorneys were asked by Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign without any warning, and Mr. Bharara, who covered the Southern district of NY, refused.
"President Trump's abrupt and unexplained decision to summarily remove over 40 U.S. Attorneys has once again caused chaos in the federal government and led to questions about whether the Justice Department's vital and non-partisan work will continue under Attorney General Sessions, as it must", New York State Attorney General Eric T. Schneiderman said in a statement Saturday afternoon.
The 48-year-old was appointed by former President Barack Obama in 2009 and was one of 46 prosecutors from the previous administration who were called on to resign by new US Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Friday.
"As was the case in prior transitions, numerous United States attorneys nominated by the previous administration already have left the Department of Justice", Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said in a statement.
Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Isgur Flores said on Friday the forced resignations were necessary "in order to ensure a uniform transition".
Friday evening, the law enforcement official said, Bharara told his section chiefs that he'd yet to submit the requested letter and may instead challenge Sessions to fire him.
When he was asked to step down Bharara had been overseeing probes into associates of New York's governor Andrew Cuomo, a Democrat, as well as the administration of the city's Democratic mayor, Bill de Blasio.
"While it's true that presidents from both parties made their own choices for US attorney positions across the country, they have always done so in an orderly fashion that doesn't put ongoing investigations at risk", the New York Democrat said.
Bahrara met with Trump back in November, when he claims Trump asked him to stay on as U.S. Attorney. According to Buzzfeed News' Chris Geidner and Zoe Tillman, new presidents tend to replace most United States attorneys, but usually not so quickly, and not before successors have been nominated or confirmed.
According to CNN, Acting Deputy Attorney General Dana Boente informed Bharara of his firing.
"The way the Obama administration handled it was appropriate and respectful and classy", he said. "It's going to be a one-liner", he added.
