Law Enforcement Can't Be Partisan?

Senator Leahy says that law enforcement, referring to the firings of U.S. Attorneys, can't be partisan.

While I don't want a highly politicized Judicial branch, where is the support for that in the Constitution? The President can fire for any reason whatsoever.

And let's say that a President made a political promise to prosecute X, whatever X may be. U.S. Attorney Smith isn't prosecuting violators of X. The President fires Smith. Is that political? Yes. Is it wrong? I don't think so.

Having attorneys prosecute opponents would be bad. The above scenario is fine.
