During her opening statement on Saturday’s edition the Fox News Channel’s “Justice,” host Judge Jeanine Pirro said that, despite the criticism, President Donald Trump asking 46 United States attorneys to resign is a “non-story” because previous presidents have done the same thing.
“Let me give it to you straight; this is a non-story. It is not unusual for any new administration to seek the dismissal of political appointees, especially when a new party comes in,” Pirro stated.
She continued, “United States attorneys are political appointees, who serve at the pleasure of the president. In 1993, Bill Clinton’s administration sought the resignation of all sitting United States attorneys appointed by Republican President George Bush, in fell one swoop. The Obama administration also replaced all United States attorneys, but one, from the Bush 43 administration.” She further cited President Obama’s statement that “elections have consequences.”
