Not all 93 USAs were fired by Clinton. Some USA seats were already being held by temporary appointments, and as your chart suggests, some Bush-appointed USAs were ultimately allowed to serve past that day in March 1993. In fact, as your chart shows, John Raley from the Eastern District of Oklahoma was reappointed to his post by President Clinton.

The number of Clinton-fired Bush appointees was likely about 70.

Thoughts at the time were that all were fired so that the U.S. Attorneys investigating Rostenkowski and Whitewater could be canned without causing a major uproar.

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.
