As reported, and in a move that was praised by President Donald Trump, Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked the 46 remaining federal attorneys appointed by former President Obama to resign Friday.
Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Flores said in a statement:
“The Attorney General has now asked the remaining 46 presidentially appointed U.S. Attorneys to tender their resignations in order to ensure a uniform transition. 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.”
But the Trump administration isn’t the only presidential administration to clean out their administration of holdover U.S. attorneys.
In fact, former President Obama did it in 2009…however, the tone from the mainstream media was remarkably different then, compared to when Trump did it on Friday.
The difference in mainstream reporting is startling – the story on Trump made it look as if he was the first president to demand mass resignations.
This simply is not true!
Thankfully, members of the public also noticed the difference:

This is why the MSM isn't to be trusted. They have a liberal agenda, they just try to hide it from us. https://t.co/AyndDCKslM

But what can we do? Let’s continue to champion free speech and call the media out for the liberal b.s whenever we see it! Share this message so it’s seen by America – mainstream is lying to you!
