NY attorney rejected Trump's call before being fired

"Until the new US attorneys are confirmed, the dedicated career prosecutors in our USA attorney's offices will continue the great work of the department in investigating, prosecuting and deterring the most violent offenders", she said in a statement.

"While it's true that presidents from both parties made their own choices for USA attorney positions across the country, they have always done so in an orderly fashion that doesn't put ongoing investigations at risk", Schumer said.

Warren's tweets mirrored the suspicions of another lawmaker, Rep. Elijah Cummings, who said Sunday morning he believed Trump was trying to destroy potential threats to his power.

The U.S. Justice Department has confirmed his exit but declined to comment further on the situation. Although he has his fans in the NY legal community, I remember when he subpoenaed Reason Magazine for the names of commenters who had made over-the-top (but not actionable) comments about a federal judge Bharara practiced before - and then banned Reason from publicizing the subpoena by subjecting them to a gag order. A White House spokesperson, Sarah Huckabee Sanders, on said Sunday night the call to Bharara was just "friendly"-a point White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer echoed on Monday. Being the US Attorney in SDNY will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life".

"President Trump's abrupt and unexplained decision to summarily remove over 40 USA attorneys has once again caused chaos in the federal government", New York Attorney General Eric Schneiderman, a Democrat, claimed.

On Friday, Jefferson Beauregard Sessions, the Attorney General, demanded that all 46 US Attorneys nominated by Obama resign by the end of the day. Presidents regularly replace US attorneys with their own appointees, although this kind of mass housecleaning is unusual.

"Hunt was direct and clear in our conversation that, given written White House contacts policy, my position as a sitting U.S. attorney, and my office's jurisdiction, it would be improper for me to speak directly to the sitting president without knowing the subject matter", Bharara said in his statement.

He was referencing the anti-corruption commission in Albany that Gov. Andrew Cuomo shut down.

A spokesman for the USA attorney's office said Bharara wasn't saying what he meant by his Moreland Commission reference. So it was a bit surprising to find out that the president tasked the Attorney General Jeff Sessions with ordering 46 USA attorneys to submit letters of resignation immediately. The U.S. Attorney also obtained dozens of insider-trading convictions and made a couple of important terrorism cases.

Levien had the same idea of Bharara joining the television show in some way, tweeting: "Writing staff?"

The seemingly abrupt about-face Friday left the affected USA attorneys scrambling to brief the people left behind and say goodbye to colleagues. Every new administration does not replace all United States attorneys at once.

Over the course of his career, Bharara accrued several success stories regarding prosecuting both State and local politicians on charges of corruption, such as in the case of former New York Assembly speaker Sheldon Silver.
