4. under the law barr cant fire him

sessions appointed him interim US attorney.
under that law he serves 120 days or until a permanent US attorney is confirmed

Trump was to lazy to appoint a permanent replacement so when his 120 day expired the judges in the district appointed him to serve until a permanent replacement is confirmed by the senate.


this is the text of the law hes serving under

28 U.S. Code  546 (d)

If an appointment expires under subsection (c)(2), the district court for such district may appoint a United States attorney to serve until the vacancy is filled. The order of appointment by the court shall be filed with the clerk of the court.
