The God Emperor makes another mistake.....nobodies perfect.
Our friend and ace blogger the Evil Blogger Lady has a post up on his eponymous named blog about an unforced error by President Trump.
It seems that one of the 46 US attorneys that were required to resign was from the Southern District of New York in one Preet Bharara. Now Mr. Bharara is a pretty liberal guy who was recommended by Schumer and appointed by Obama. But he is a man of the highest integrity. He prosecuted Shelly Silver who was the head of the New York State Assembly and was the most powerful politician in New York for about two decades. Then he locked up Dean Skelos who was head of the Republicans in the State Senate. He goes after the crooks and lets the chips fall where they may.
Earlier in the transition President Trump met with Mr. Bharara and told him he wanted him to continue in his post. Of course that was when he thought that they were still going to go after Hillary. So maybe that changed their thinking. I just don't think so.
I think it was an oversight. Two other US attorneys were told that their resignations would not be accepted. It is standard practice in government to get an undated resignation letter for the file. US Attorneys are always fired when the an opposite party comes in. No biggee. I think that we will hear next week that President Trump wants him to continue. At least I hope that is the case.
In any event why not take this opportunity to check out Evi's blog. He is on the blogroll and it is easy to jump over there. He always has great stuff going on and could use some traffic and a few comments. I have been remiss in not commenting there more often and I will up my game. It can be tough to put up great post after great post and not get any comments. We need to support each other as best as we can. So stop by Evi and Chip and the other blogs on our blog roll and drop a comment or two.
