135 Former SDNY Prosecutors Decry Ousting Of US Attorney Geoffrey Berman

135 former New York prosecutors rose up on Sunday in a letter of protest, to defend former US Attorney Geoffrey Berman.

The move came after Attorney General William Barr late Friday claimed Berman had resigned, which he disputed.
