    SHOWDOWN: Chief federal prosecutor in NYC refuses to step down as Barr names replacement; UPDATE: FIRED!

    Geoffrey Berman defiantly refused to step down Friday night as the Man­hat­tan U.S. attorney after Attorney General William Barr announced that President Trump plans to nom­i­nate Se­cu­ri­ties and Ex­change Com­mis­sion chairman Jay Clay­ton to suc­ceed him. Barr announced the personnel change late Friday evening and said New Jersey U.S. Attorney Craig Carpen­ito will temporarily fill the job.

    "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,” Berman said. “I will step down when a presidentially appointed nominee is confirmed by the Senate. Until then, our investigations will move forward without delay or interruption."

    UPDATE: BARR RESPONDS, TRUMP FIRES BERMAN!

    "Unfortunately, with your statement of last night, you have chosen public spectacle over public service... I have asked the President to remove you as of today, and he has done so," Barr said in a statement Saturday.
