U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara of New York is not resigning from his post despite being asked to do so by the Justice Department, a source familiar with the situation told Reuters on Saturday, potentially setting up a showdown between President Donald Trump and one of the country's top federal prosecutors.Like all of the nation's 93 U.S. attorneys, Bharara is a political appointee who is typically replaced when a new president takes office.Trump has asked two of the prosecutors, Maryland U.S. Attorney Rod Rosenstein to stay on as the Senate considers his nomination to serve as the No. 2 Justice Department official, according to the Justice Department.
