    Fox News senior judicial analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano said Monday that investigations of Trump associates “will probably continue” even after the firing of the district attorney for the Southern District of New York (SDNY). Napolitano weighed in after Attorney General William Barr informed New York's top prosecutor Geoffrey Berman that President Trump had removed him from his post. Berman will be replaced by Deputy U.S. Attorney Audrey Strauss until a permanent successor is in place. “The attorney general didn't give a reason for firing him,” Napolitano told “America’s Newsroom.” In a letter to Berman obtained by Fox News, Barr said he asked Trump to fire Berman after the Manhattan U.S. Attorney said Friday he planned to stay on the job against the Trump administration's wishes. Trump, however, distanced himself from Berman's ouster Saturday, saying it was Barr's call. Video"That's all up to the attorney general," Trump said when asked about Berman's firing. "Attorney General Barr is working on that. That's his department, not my department."

    Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer is demanding that the firing of U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of New York Geoffrey Berman be investigated.  The top Senate Democrat wrote a letter Monday to the Department of Justice's Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Office of Professional Responsibility head Jeffrey Ragsdale asking for a joint probe into Berman's ouster.  'I ask that you review the reason for the removal of the U.S. Attorney Berman and whether he was removed for partisan political purposes, to influence an investigation or prosecution, or to retaliate for his actions in any specific investigation or prosecution,' Schumer wrote in the letter.   Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wants an investigation into the removal of Geoffrey Berman, the United States attorney for the Southern District of New York Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer wrote a letter Monday to the Department of Justice's Inspector General Michael Horowitz and Office of Professional Responsibility head...
    Drew Angerer. Getty Images Attorney General William Barr on Saturday told New York’s top federal prosecutor that President Donald Trump had fired him nearly 24 hours after he refused to resign. On Friday, Barr announced Geoffrey Berman, the federal prosecutor for the Southern District of New York, would be replaced by the Chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) Jay Clayton. Initially, Berman said he had no plans to resign leading to his removal on Saturday. Berman said in a statement, “I learned in a press release from the Attorney General that I was ‘stepping down’ as United States Attorney. I have not resigned, and have no intention of resigning, my position, to which I was appointed by the Judges of the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York. I will step down when a presidentially appointed nominee is confirmed by the Senate.” Barr wrote...
    Sen. Lindsey Graham said Saturday he will not take up President Trump's nomination for a new U.S. attorney for Manhattan unless New York's Democratic senators sign off. Graham, a Republican from South Carolina who chairs the Senate Judiciary Committee, said he will honor the "blue slip" tradition and require the consent of home state senators to proceed -- in this case, Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand. Graham's statement signals an uphill climb for Trump to get a new Senate-confirmed federal prosecutor in one of the nation’s most high-profile districts. It comes hours after Attorney General Bill Barr made a Friday night announcement that Geoffrey Berman, the current U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York, is stepping down.
