Trump administration dismisses 46 US attorneys

Trump administration dismisses 46 US attorneys | 10 March 2017 | Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asked for the resignation of 46 US attorneys, the Justice Department announced Friday. "As was the case in prior transitions, many of the United States attorneys nominated by the previous administration already have left the Department of Justice. The attorney general has now asked the remaining 46 presidentially appointed US attorneys to tender their resignations in order to ensure a uniform transition," Justice Department spokesperson Sarah Isgur Flores said. Administrations have the right to replace and nominate US attorneys...In mid-March 2001, President [sic] George W. Bush's attorney general said he was transitioning most of the 93 US attorneys before June of that year.
