Democrats were not happy about the firing.
“While it’s true that presidents from both parties made their own choices for U.S. attorney positions across the country, they have always done so in an orderly fashion that doesn’t put ongoing investigations at risk. They ask for letters of resignation, but the attorneys are allowed to stay on the job until their successor is confirmed. By asking for the immediate resignations of the remaining US attorneys before their replacements have been confirmed, the President is interrupting ongoing cases and investigations and hindering the administration of justice.” – Chuck Schumer
