- Wikipedia-EN: 2017 dismissal of U.S. attorneys
On March 10, 2017, Jeff Sessions, who was appointed United States Attorney General by President Donald Trump, requested the resignations of 46 United States Attorneys. Some resignations were declined by Sessions or Trump. Media outlets described Sessions’s move as abrupt and unexpected, but not unprecedented. The other 47 U.S. Attorneys had previously tendered their resignations upon Trump’s inauguration.
