This issue is a major example of Trump, and his flunky Barr, trying to politicize the Justice Department. It sounds a lot like Hitler, who replaced the police with the Gestapo.

Thanks for posting this Cent, yet another act of corruption by the Thug-In-Chief and his lieutenant, Barr.  I logged on to post about this and saw your posting.

 

Coming up with this on  late Friday night just months before his election, tRump is showing that the will stop at nothing to interfere with investigations of some of his  partners in crime. and our process of justice. He is trying to protect the corruption around him. And of course he has to lie about Berman leaving and plans to replace him with someone that has no experience at all in being a prosecutor, just another puppet for tRump and Barr. Trump appoints people and fires them when they actually do their jobs.

 

The corruption will never stop, it will just escalate as long as tRump is in office.

good for him!!! Trump doesn't like it that his job is to take on Trump and all his corruption baggage so he orders his stooge AG Barr to get rid of him. A typical Trump playbook option.

Berman said he learned he was "stepping down" from the press release.  (Is that the same as learning you're fired on Twitter?)  Oh hell no, he said he won't go. 

 

You bet, something sure stinks in the Trumpian cesspool. 😝 Seems Rep. Nadler had invited Berman to testify in a hearing next week on the conduct and leadership of Billy Barr, and next thing you know, Barr says Berman is stepping down.

 

Un-huh, suure he is. 😒

I hate to crow but I told all this would happen months ago. It had to happen for Trump to have full control of the JD and everything it does.

Notice they appointed an acting US Attorney and that person can serve for 6 months. That gets Trump past election time and even if the Senate would not confirm the new Trump pick Trump is safe and controls the Office. You know the acting person is a Trump lackey and will do what Barr tells him.

You see once again how Dictators come to power through elections. The US has no Fed. justice system any more, and if you think they will not come after anyone opposing Trump think again. They are looking at putting John B in jail over his book. If they do that Biden will be next.

Hitler and Trump the same.

Barr Tries to Replace Powerful US Attorney in NY - He Ain't Leaving

Original posted story below.....the new UPDATED Story is.....

Let the Coup Begin!!! Fight Fascist Dictators with fascism....

 

Barr replaces powerful US attorney in New York who investigated Trump associates

 

Geoffrey Berman, the powerful US attorney for the Southern District of New York who has investigated a number of powerful associates with connections to President Donald Trump, was forced out of his position Friday, two sources tell CNN.

 
In a late night press release announcing Berman's departure, the Justice Department said Trump intends to nominate Jay Clayton, the chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, who has never been a prosecutor.
 
A Justice Department official told CNN that Berman was offered other positions at Justice, including the head of the civil division, where assistant Attorney General Jody Hunt abruptly announced his departure this week. Berman declined.
 
A second source with knowledge of the matter said Berman was asked to resign and refused.
 
 
 
Berman's unexpected exit is likely to draw scrutiny inside the US attorney's office and among career prosecutors. He had been the US attorney for Manhattan since 2018, and under his leadership, his office prosecuted Trump's former attorney Michael Cohen, is investigating top Trump confidante Rudy Giuliani and indicted the former New York mayor's associates Lev Parnas and Igor Fruman.
 
Tensions between the New York and Washington offices have grown with Berman and Barr butting heads over the handling of some cases, including the indictment of Turkish bank Halkbank.
 
Last fall, Justice Department officials discussed replacing Berman with Ed O'Callaghan, a senior official, but then prosecutors indicted the Giuliani associates, a move that appeared to extend Berman's tenure.
 
The timing of the move, announced shortly before 10 p.m. ET, immediately raised questions about the circumstances regarding Berman's departure. Barr was in New York on Friday, according to the Justice Department. It's not clear whether he met with Berman, and the Justice Department declined to say whether Berman was asked to resign.
 
Preet Bharara, who was fired by Trump as US attorney for the Southern District shortly after Trump took office in 2017, tweeted Friday night, "Why does a president get rid of his own hand-picked US Attorney in SDNY on a Friday night, less than 5 months before the election?"
 
Before Clayton was nominated to the SEC post by Trump, he was a corporate lawyer at Sullivan & Cromwell. If confirmed, Clayton would be the first non-prosecutor to lead SDNY.
 
Barr and Clayton have known each other for years, the Justice official said, and Clayton was planning to leave to go back to NY. He expressed interest in the SDNY job, the Justice official said, and Barr agreed.
 
Barr said Trump has appointed Craig Carpenito, currently the United States Attorney for the District of New Jersey, to serve as the acting United States attorney for the Southern District of New York until Clayton is confirmed. Carpentio will begin the role on July 3.
