After Donald J. Trump's Inauguration, nearly half of the U.S. District Attorney's tendered their resignation. Since the confirmation of Jeff Sessions as U.S. Attorney General, Sessions has asked the remaining 46 U.S. attorneys who served under the Obama administration to resign. The judicial musical chairs after the changing of the guard in the White House is a normal thing. It happens just about every time when a new President comes in.
Of course, the liberal media leaped all over the situation, calling it a “stunning standoff.”
Were the Democrats, or the media, as appalled in 1993 when President Bill Clinton made the decision to get rid of all 93 U.S. attorneys at the time?
The answer is simple. They didn't care. They did not reveal any angst over the situation, like they have over Trump's decision. However, interestingly enough, when George W. Bush took office, and he replaced only 8 of them, they went nuts.
In response to Bush asking for the resignations of only eight U.S. District Attorneys, Anchor Charles Gibson promised that ABC would “look at all the angles tonight,” but he skipped the Clinton comparison. Gibson teased: “New controversy at the White House after a string of U.S. attorneys is fired under questionable circumstances. There are calls for the Attorney General to resign.” CBS's Katie Couric declared that “the uproar is growing tonight over the firing of eight federal prosecutors by the Justice Department” and fill-in NBC anchor Campbell Brown teased: “The Attorney General and the firestorm tonight over the controversial dismissal of several federal prosecutors. Was it political punishment?” Brown soon asserted that “it's a story that has been brewing for weeks and it exploded today” — an explosion fueled by the news media.
The problem is, the snowflakes, and uninformed Democrat voters, only go by what the mainstream media tells them today, and are not willing to look deeper into the issue, or admit that there is any hypocrisy. Besides, I doubt many of them were alive, or paying attention if they were around, when Clinton mowed down the entire Justice Department without even as much as a whimper from the mouths of his allies in the press.
