Clash Over U.S. Attorney Who Investigated Trump Associates Sets Off Crisis

So The Don tries to get rid of one of his own appointees (again). Apparently this dude, Berman (stiff necked fellow one would suppose) wasn't "loyal" (read corrupt) enough. He should have just followed the so called Attorney General, butt licker Barr's lead in performing his functions as Trump's puppet. These include bowing, scraping, anal sniffing and licking as well seeing the world upside down, he would have been fine. Remember Trump only hires the bestest people, until he fires them as disgusting dirt bags. Sad

"The top federal prosecutor in Manhattan, who has investigated President Trump’s closest associates, was refusing to leave his position on Saturday after Attorney General William P. Barr tried to fire him, setting up an extraordinary standoff over the independence of law enforcement and the president’s purge of officials he views as disloyal.

Mr. Barr abruptly announced the resignation late Friday night of the prosecutor, Geoffrey S. Berman, United States attorney for the Southern District of New York, whose office has been at the forefront of corruption inquiries into Mr. Trump’s inner circle. The office successfully prosecuted the president’s former personal lawyer, Michael Cohen, who went to prison, and has been investigating Mr. Trump’s current personal lawyer, Rudolph W. Giuliani.

But Mr. Berman then quickly issued a statement denying that he was leaving. “I have not resigned, and have no intention of resigning, my position,” Mr. Berman said, adding that he had learned that he was “stepping down” from a Justice Department news release.

The clash over one of the Justice Department’s most prestigious jobs came as the agency had already been roiled by questions over whether Mr. Barr had undercut its tradition of independence from political interference."

OP,

Why wouldn’t you post the most recent version of events?



Geoffrey Berman, who served as the U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York, said in a statement Saturday evening that he will leave his post "effective immediately," bringing an end to his temporary standoff with the Justice Department over President Donald Trump's efforts to fire him.

Yes, this is correct. And more proof of the news agencies being out of touch with normal Americans. No one gives a crap about it.
