The US attorney for Manhattan, Preet Bharara, declined to resign despite a directive to do so from Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Sessions has, as a result of Bharara's defiance, summarily fired the insolent US Attorney. The demand from the Justice Department for 46 Obama Era US attorneys to resign came down late last week. Bharara claimed that he had previously met with Pres. Trump at Trump Tower before the inauguration and had been asked to stay on.
The mainstream usual suspect media is up in arms over the mass firings, cultivating conspiracy theories that scream "fake news" and further deceive their informational consumers.
It appears entities like CNN and MSNBC need a refresher course in Civics & Government. Any and every political appointee under the purview of the Executive Branch serves "at the pleasure" of the President of the United States. That means the President - regardless of who it is - can dismiss anyone at any time for any reason or no reason at all. This is why they are called political appointees.
Bill Clinton, George W. Bush and Barack Obama did the exact same thing as far as the US Attorney's go.
Donald Trump would be well served to take this a step further, expunging every single Obama political appointee from government. Obama appointed politically ideological appointees who tow the Progressive line and that kind of appointee is more an activist than a public servant.
Don't be surprised if when the many leakers are found in the Intelligence community that they are found to be appointees of either Clinton or Obama.
Have I said yet that Progressivism is like a cancer?!
