Putin’s Bitch Covers His Tracks at DOJ

11 Mar

In another attempt at massive coverup, the Chump ordered all Obama appointed Lawyers to leave the DOJ. He is now free to appoint as many racist white supremacists as he wants to defend his base from prosecution for their hate crimes. The DOJ has just become as “fair” as the KKK at a lynching.

Trump team ousts Obama-appointed U.S. attorneys

The president had previously asked Preet Bharara, the U.S. attorney in New York, to stay on.

President Donald Trump’s administration asked remaining U.S. attorneys appointed by President Barack Obama to offer their resignations Friday, a seemingly abrupt move that surprised many—including the officeholders asked to leave.

At the top of that list was Preet Bharara, who oversees the powerful Manhattan office, which is known for handling high-profile Wall Street and terrorism cases. In November, Bharara met with the president-elect at Trump Tower and then held a press conference in the lobby to say that he would continue to serve the new administration.

People in the White House, however, said the dismissals had been discussed for weeks. “Been in the works for awhile. Decided to pull the trigger today,” said one senior administration official.

“We were always planning for it on about Day 50,” this person said.

The removal of U.S. attorneys has been politically fraught for years, with the midterm dismissal of eight chief federal prosecutors in December 2006 causing a firestorm that ultimately led to the resignation of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales.

The timing and scope of such dismissals have often led to charges and counter-charges that they violated prior precedents. President Bill Clinton’s attorney general, Janet Reno, asked for resignations in March 1993, but allowed U.S. attorneys to stay in place until their replacements could be confirmed.

It appears the Trump administration plans to handle the dismissals differently. “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,” Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Flores said in a statement on Friday afternoon. “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.”

Flores initially declined to comment when asked if the prosecutors had to leave their posts right away, but said later Friday that the resignations were to be “effective immediately.”

While the White House initially indicated to reporters that all 46 of the remaining Obama-appointed U.S. attorneys were told to depart, a senior administration official told POLITICO Friday night that the list of which prosecutors would be told to exit was “not finalized.”

The White House has not yet lined up replacements for the Obama-era U.S. attorneys being shown the door, a senior administration official told POLITICO. Trump has not yet formally nominated anyone to a U.S. attorney post.

When the mass ouster was first announced it was unclear whether it included the Obama-appointed U.S. attorney in Alexandria, Virginia, Dana Boente, who is currently serving as acting deputy attorney general, or Trump’s nominee to serve in that position on a permanent basis, the Obama-appointed U.S. attorney for Maryland, Rod Rosenstein.

However, the Justice Department said Friday evening that Trump decided Boente and Rosenstein would continue in their posts. “The president called Dana Boente and Rod Rosenstein tonight to inform them that he has declined to accept their resignation, and they will remain in their current positions,” Flores said.

White House deputy press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders referred questions back to the Justice Department.

    lol, everything’s gwanna be alright bruh…, see how Loretta Lynch (arms and cankles swole up like easter hams) is ready to go marching in the streets putting in the work. (she could definitely use the march and the work about now…,)

    Your tireless anti-Trump rhetoric always and everywhere fails to take stock of exactly how awful things have become under the “twopartyoneideology” parasitic-extractive governance of the elite administrative state. But then, as Upton Sinclair sagely noted a long, long time ago

    “It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends upon his not understanding it!”

      From one who claims progress “draining the swamp”, and turning it into a cesspool…That indeed is rich.

      Communist Russia only had one Party. Communist satellite state, America hasn’t quite sunk to those depths…Yet.

        lol, so unseemly when a grown-assed man is left with nothing more substantial than vapors to catch and pearls to clutch. and you know this, yet you persist!!! but hey, that’s your partisan cross to bear brah…, Hope you all find something more substantial to work with soon, because as things presently stand, .45 is kicking all your collective asses with nothing more substantial than his flipping twitter account http://takimag.com/article/holmes_or_clouseau_who_carestrump_wins_again_david_cole/print#axzz4aqPgxLw9

        Because I have no dogs in this hunt, I get to kick back with my popcorn and ice cold beer and unsympathetically take in the flimsier than a fig leaf political theatre emanating from out of touch, demonstrably incompetent, dishonest, and geriatrically inflexible posers who have no earthly idea what to do with or do about .45

        What we had before January 20 was corrupt, incompetent, deceitful, psychopathocratic, unsustainable, and rotten to its core. What you have now is little better – but at the very least it promises to b>SplinterItIntoAThousandPiecesAndScatterItIntoTheWinds the shitshow that has overlong and arrogantly occupied all those bureaucratic warrens and burrows infesting the greater beltway sprawl.

        Humpty Dumpty has had a very great fall. All the kings horsemen and all the king’s men WILL NOT BE ABLE to put his broken ass back together again.

        Again you can’t get it right. Wyatt carried a Smith and Wesson Model 3 Single Action American in 44 caliber breakfront, not a Colt Buntline.

        You and Becky need to stay with the poppin’ corn.

        Becky is kinda cute with that itty-bitty shotgun though.

        More like my little girl carries-
