Jeff Sessions, the Attorney General of the United States, asked the remaining 46 chief federal prosecutors left over from the Obama administration to resign.

This was reported by the press service of United States Department of Justice, according to Reuters agency.

The request was sent to Manhattan U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara in particular, who had earlier agreed to remain in office with President Donald Trump, as it was considered up till now. Bharara met with Trump in Trump Tower on November 30, claiming they had "a good meeting" and he agreed to stay on.

Although the prosecutor’s post is political and the decision of Trump's Justice Department could be regarded as usual practice, the move came as a surprise for everybody. No other presidential administration before Trump managed to replace American prosecutors all at once, according to the agency.
