President Trump says, “You’re Fired!” to U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara, who Refused AG Request to Resign – Video 3/11/17
Good grief. What an arrogant piece of work. Refused to resign when asked to do so by the Attorney General of the United States – despite it being totally customary for U.S. Attorneys to be replaced when a new President takes office. He was determined to make President Trump fire him – which he did!
I did not resign. Moments ago I was fired. Being the US Attorney in SDNY will forever be the greatest honor of my professional life.— Preet Bharara (@PreetBharara) March 11, 2017
