Elizabeth Warren Says Trump Pushed out Prosecutors to Install ‘Cronies’

Progressive senator attacks president over firing of Preet Bharara, while former US attorney writes cryptic tweet alluding to past corruption inquiry

The progressive senator Elizabeth Warren accused Donald Trump of firing a prominent prosecutor to install cronies , warning on Sunday of a massive fight in the Senate over his picks for new US attorneys.

.

On Saturday, Trump fired Preet Bharara, the US attorney of the southern district of Manhattan, where the prosecutor had pursued corruption cases against members of both the Republican and Democratic parties. In November, Bharara met with Trump and his nominee for attorney general, Jeff Sessions, and said he had agreed to stay on after conversations with both.

.

But on Friday afternoon, Sessions abruptly ordered 46 prosecutors, nearly all appointees of Barack Obama, to resign effective immediately. Bharara refused to resign and was fired, saying in a brief public statement: One hallmark of justice is absolute independence, and that was my touchstone every day that I served.

.

On Sunday, Bharara wrote a message, tantalizing in its apparent implications but lacking any detail, on the former US attorneys newly active personal Twitter account. By the way, now I know what the Moreland Commission must have felt like.

.

The Moreland Committee was created to investigate corruption in New York state government but was abruptly shut down by governor Andrew Cuomo in 2014. At the time of his dismissal, Bharara was overseeing separate corruption investigations into the staffs of Cuomo and New York mayor Bill de Blasio.

.

New presidents typically replace the appointees named by their predecessors, but not since 1993 has a new administration done so in such a rapid, sweeping fashion. And late Saturday, an official speaking on condition of anonymity told the Associated Press that the sudden dismissal of Bharara was preceded by an unusual phone call from the White House to the prosecutors office.

.

On Thursday, the presidents secretary called Bharara, who declined to take the call because the justice department has strict rules about communications between presidents and prosecutors. Bharara told Trumps secretary he could not speak directly with the president.

.

The White House has declined to comment on why Trump fired Bharara after asking him to continue in his role. Warren seized on this ambiguity, tweeting on Sunday that Trump talked a big game about getting corruption out of gov[ernment]. But he wants a bunch of tame prosecutors who wont investigate him.

Warren said the president wants people like AG Sessions, a loyalist who lied to the Senate about meeting with the Russians, alluding to Sessions failure, under oath, to disclose his own conversations with the ambassador.

.

You cant fire the rule of law, Warren wrote. You cant shut down ongoing investigations by career prosecutors.

.

The Senate confirms US Attorneys. And youre not replacing real prosecutors with cronies [with]out a massive fight, she added.

.

Despite Warrens threats, she and fellow Democrats have little hope of ceating a major Senate battle over US attorney nominations. The party in control of the Senate needs only a simple majority to approve nominations, and few Republicans have broken ranks on any of the presidents cabinet picks.
