Excerpt from wikipedia, in italics, below, with regard to the recent firing of U.S. Attorney Southern District of New York, Geoffrey Steven Berman:
Geoffrey Steven Berman (born September 12, 1959) is an American attorney who served as the United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 2018 to 2020. Berman served as an Assistant United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York from 1990 to 1994. In January 2018, U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced Berman’s appointment as interim U.S. Attorney for a statutory period of 120 days. On April 25, 2018, the judges of the Southern District of New York, pursuant to , unanimously appointed Berman U.S. Attorney for an indeterminate term that expired “until the vacancy is filled”, which may or may not include the appointment of a presidential nominee approved by the Senate.
On June 19, 2020, Attorney General William Barr announced that he would replace Berman on July 3 and that Jay Clayton, the chairman of the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, would be nominated as his replacement. Hours later, Berman stated that he had not resigned and would not resign until “a presidentially appointed nominee is confirmed by the Senate.” At the time that Trump and Barr sought his ouster, Berman was reportedly investigating Trump’s personal attorney Rudy Giuliani for multiple felonies relating to his activities in Ukraine. On June 20, 2020, Barr told Berman that he had been fired by Trump at Barr’s request and that the deputy U.S. Attorney, Audrey Strauss, would serve as acting U.S. Attorney. Berman then agreed to resign.
On Friday, June 19, 2020, Geoffrey Berman, the prosecutor who led probe of Trump associates was refusing to step down after Barr announced his replacement.
