Now this is why the left wanted Attorney General Jeff Sessions gone!
The man appointed by President Donald J. Trump, who pledged he would “drain the swamp” of bureaucrats and career politicians during his campaign had just watched his new Attorney General do just that!
BREAKING: Attorney General Jeff Sessions seeks resignation of 46 United States attorneys remaining from prior administration.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has just asked 46 U.S. attorneys appointed by Barack Obama, to help ensure a “uniform transition.”
From Fox News:
The department said some U.S. attorneys, as in prior transitions, already had left the department. Now, “the Attorney General has now asked the remaining 46 presidentially appointed U.S. Attorneys to tender their resignations,” a spokeswoman said.
“Until the new U.S. Attorneys are confirmed, the dedicated career prosecutors in our U.S. Attorney’s Offices will continue the great work of the Department in investigating, prosecuting, and deterring the most violent offenders,” the statement added.
It is customary, though not automatic, for the country’s 93 U.S. attorneys to leave their positions once a new president is in office. Incoming administrations over the past several decades typically have replaced most U.S. attorneys during the first year or two.
We can surely expect a reaction from the left, but the fact of the matter is, Trump is the president now – it’s time for changes!
Drain the swamp!
