According to reports and an article posted on Rollingout.com, (http://rollingout.com/2017/03/13/trump-fires-us-attorney-may-investigating-administration/) " President Donald Trump asked for the resignations of 46 US Attorneys in the Justice Department. The news came on Friday at the end of the working day and shocked many members of the Justice Department. It is normal for presidents to replace attorney generals from prior administrations, but the timing of the move has some questioning whether this is an attempt to cause disarray over possible investigations of the Trump administration and associates. One prominent example of this is US Attorney General for the Southern District of New York, Preet Bharara."
Since the recusal of Jeff Sessions from matters dealing with the election of Donald Trump, there seems to be a scramble to protect and shield the Trump Administration from inquiries into the nature of the Trump camp's relationship with a foreign power. While it appears the Independent Bipartisan Investigative Committee approaches a decision to call for an independent prosecutor, the WH appears to be muddying the waters of making it possible for such an investigation/prosecution to take place.
Without a deputy yet appointed, who would or could be appointed. One fear of the new administration appears to be Preet Bharara. According to the article, "When Bharara was attorney general, he was feared by major Wall Street companies and hedge funds because of his prosecution of criminal misconduct. Earlier this month, the government ethics watch group Democracy 21, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and the Campaign Legal Center sent a letter to Bharara. The letter asked for an investigation of Trump and read in part, “Democracy 21, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) and the Campaign Legal Center request that you undertake an investigation to determine if the Trump Organization LLC, the Trump Organization, Inc., and any related Trump businesses based in the Southern District of New York are receiving payments and financial benefits from foreign governments that benefit President Donald Trump and that do not comply with Article I, Section 9, Clause 8 of the United States Constitution, the ‘Foreign Emoluments Clause.'”
It appears that subterfuge is the name of the game. How better to muddy the waters than to appoint cronies in the justice department in place of prosecutors that might want or actually look for the truth.
According to a tweet by Preet Bharara on March 11th at 2:29 PM he did not resign, he was fired by Trump. Is it because of his professional history, or because Bharara would have jurisdiction over a case that took place in New York.
If the reports are accurate (CNN, Raw Story, Vox, businessinsider, thehillnews, etc.), it seems just a matter of time before Trump's towering house of cards comes tumbling down.
