Trump Administration asked Obama-Appointed US Attorneys to Resign with Public Announcement

The Department of Justice made a public announcement of the completion of the transition between Trump and Obama by announcing resignations of Obama-appointed U.S. attorneys. Apparently, the abrupt announcement of their resignations shocked [1] them, as they had not received notice that they were required to resign that day.

As is custom, the previous administration’s appointees are out of office when the transition is underway.
