Finally! Today AG Sessions asked for the resignation of the remainder of Obama’s appointed U.S. attorneys. Many of Obama’s 93 appointees had already quit which left 46 that he fired.
Per FoxNews.com, Sessions is “describing the move as part of an effort to ensure a “uniform transition.”
This is standard practice for most incoming administrations so it’s not a shock. But that won’t stop Democrats from calling foul I’m sure.
“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.
The move Friday also comes amid Republican concerns that officials who served under the Obama administration may be working against the Trump administration. Those suspicions, though, largely have focused on intelligence agencies and elsewhere.
We can only hope that Trump will fire all of Obama’s political appointees, sooner rather than later. This is a good start at one of the most vile and political agencies that Obama used for his injustice transformation.
