Rep. Jerry Nadler (D-NY) admitted that there is nothing unusual about a new administration removing U.S Attorneys appointed under a previous administration during an interview on CNN’s New Day.
In recent days, Democrats have been making an issue of President Trump requesting the resignation of U.S. Attorneys that were appointed by President Obama. Most notable of these was Preet Bharara, the US Attorney for the Southern District of New York, who tweeted Saturday about his firing when he refused to resign.
CNN’s Chris Cuomo asked Nadler about Trump removing these officials, citing that previous presidents had done the same thing.
“There’s nothing unusual about removing the former president’s U.S. Attorneys,” Nadler told Cuomo.
