Warren Vows Obstruction of Trump U.S. Attorneys

Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) promised to use President Donald Trump’s firing of a U.S. attorney in New York Saturday as a launching pad for a “massive fight” with a renewed series of Democrat-led political obstructions during a Twitter tirade Sunday. The progressive Massachusetts senator was reacting to the firing of federal prosecutor Preet Bharara Saturday after Bharara refused to submit his resignation. The call for Bharara’s resignation came Friday when Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked 46 of the remaining U.S. attorneys appointed by former President Obama to submit their resignations. Every new presidential administration appoints new candidates to fill at least some of the 93 U.S. attorney districts nationwide. “Newsflash, @realDonaldTrump: The Senate confirms US Attorneys. And you’re not replacing real prosecutors with cronies w/out a massive fight.” But Warren, as well as several other key Democratic leaders, pretended the move from Sessions was somehow uncommon. “You can’t fire the rule of law, @realDonaldTrump. You can’t shut down ongoing investigations by career prosecutors,” Warren tweeted
