Top US prosecutor fired after refusing White House

NEW YORK -UNS: High-profile New York prosecutor Preet Bharara — who was among the federal attorneys asked to resign by the White House — said Saturday that he has been fired.

US President Donald Trump’s administration on Friday demanded the resignations of dozens of US prosecutors — including Bharara — appointed during the two terms of his predecessor Barack Obama.

The federal attorney’s firing capped a standoff with the Trump administration that started when Bharara refused the White House order to resign.

“I did not resign. Moments ago I was fired,” Bharara tweeted Saturday using his recently created personal account.
