In a statement, BERMAN steps down with a note that he is only doing so because BARR backed off his highly unusual transition plan.

Read more about the deputy taking over his post, whom he praises here:…
House Judiciary chair @RepJerryNadler announces plans to “immediately open an investigation” into Berman’s ouster, including “additional steps to secure [Berman’s] testimony” for Wednesday’s hearing on Justice Dept whistleblowers.
Every SDNY prosecutor I have spoken to in a decade on the beat has been fiercely protective of the institution.
