Not all 93 USAs were fired by Clinton. ... The number of Clinton-fired Bush appointees was likely about 70.

As I understand it, Janet Reno demanded resignations from all 93 U.S. Attorneys, but did not accept every resignation tendered, in obedience to her order. Some U.S. Attorneys were left in place -- on a probationary basis, one might say.

Some of the U.S. Attorneys were court-appointed temporary replacements whose resignations probably couldn't be forced. Not every USA position was filled with a political appointee in March 1993.

And of the Carter/Reagan/Bush USA appointees in office, John Raley, James Wilson (M.D.AL), Karen Caldwell (E.D.KY), Raymond LaMonica (M.D.LA), Michael Chertoff (D.NJ), Ernest Williams (M.D.TN), Richard Stacy (D.WY), John Smietanka (W.D.MI), George Phillips (S.D.MS) and Frederick Black (D. Guam) likely served past the March 1993 firing date.
