Donald Trump anchored his presidential campaign around the idea that he, a Washington outsider, could bring real change to the nation’s capital.
Trump’s famous campaign promise to “drain the swamp” had many in America, who were sick and tired of business as usual under the democratic leadership of Barack Obama, running to the polls in an effort to reign in our out of control legislature. Now, Attorney General Jeff Sessions is taking that ethos, and an axe, to Obama’s bevy of federal attorneys.
“U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions has asked the remaining 46 chief federal prosecutors appointed by President Barack Obama who have not already resigned to do so ‘in order to ensure a uniform transition,’ the Justice Department said on Friday.
“‘Until the new U.S. attorneys are confirmed, the dedicated career prosecutors in our U.S. attorney’s offices will continue the great work of the department in investigating, prosecuting, and deterring the most violent offenders,’ it said in a statement.”
These 46 appointees represent one of the last personnel hurdles of the Trump administration, as they continue to mow through what’s left of Obama’s cabal of left leaning loyalists. Now, the real work of draining the swamp and returning power to the American people can truly begin.
