US attorney general William Barr announced the resignation on Friday of an influential attorney who oversaw key prosecutions of allies of Donald Trump and an investigation into Rudy Giuliani -- but it appeared the attorney in question had other ideas. "I have not resigned, and have no intention of resigning," said Geoffrey Berman, adding he learned of his apparent departure as attorney for the Southern District of New York from a justice department press release.
"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. I cherish every day that I work with the men and women of this office to pursue justice without fear or favor " and intend to ensure that this office's important cases continue unimpeded," he said in a statement on Friday night.
