The desire of the President of the United States Donald trump to dismiss attorney for the southern district of new York Jeffrey Berman may be associated with the request of the leader of Turkey, Tayyip Erdogan, said the former assistant to the us President for national security John Bolton in an interview with ABC.
The Prosecutor’s office for the southern district of new York tested Turkish Bank Halkbank concerning alleged evasion of U.S. sanctions against Iran, said Bolton. Thus, according to him, this issue was discussed at the presidential level.
During one of the conversations with Erdogan trump said that "care" about the settlement of the case Halkbank, when you replace "the people Obama" (ex-US President Barack Obama. – note "Newspaper.EN") in the Prosecutor’s office on its own, says Bolton.
Earlier it was reported that the U.S. justice Department decided to change the attorney for the southern district of new York Jeffrey Berman, who led the case against lawyers by President Donald trump. But Berman refused to leave his post.
