Yesterday Friday it was announced the US Justice Department that the Attorney General, Jeff Sessions asked for the resignations of 46 US attorneys. The Justice Department spokesperson Sarah Isgur Flores said,
“as was the case in prior transitions, many of the United States attorneys nominated 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,”.
“Until the new US attorneys are confirmed, the dedicated career prosecutors in our US attorney’s offices will continue the great work of the department in investigating, prosecuting, and deterring the most violent offenders.”
