Attorney General Jeff Sessions asked all 46 US attorneys appointed by President Obama to resign Friday — but while Brooklyn's Robert Capers was quick to comply, the future of the city's only other Obama holdover, Manhattan's Preet Bharara, remained unclear.

After meeting separately with Bharara in late November, both Sessions and President Trump said they planned to keep the aggressive Southern District AG in place.

"We had a good meeting," Bharara told reporters after his meet with Trump. "I agreed to stay on. I have already spoken to Sen. Sessions . . . He also asked that I stay on, and so I expect that I will be continuing to work and so I expect that I will be continuing to work at the southern district. Bharara has hardly been a paragon of fealty since then. In starting his own personal Twitter account last week, Bharara identified himself as "a patriotic American and proud immigrant."
