The New York Post: Bharara refused to call back Trump a day before he was fired: report

U.S. prosecutor Preet Bharara was fired by the attorney general a day after he refused to return a phone call from President Donald Trump, a report alleges.

An assistant to the president called Bharara’s office Thursday, saying the president wanted to talk, but Bharara refused citing Department of Justice rules, the New York Times reported.

On Friday, Attorney General Jeff Sessions notified all 46 federal prosecutors, who were appointed by President Barack Obama and still active, to leave. Bharara was one of those asked to resign.

When Bharara got the call Thursday, he informed an aide to Sessions that he wouldn’t be able to talk to the president because of the rules.
