Jeff Sessions Is Out - Slog

Jeff Sessions resigns as attorney general at Trump's request Sessions resigns as U.S. Attorney General

In a letter, Sessions announced his plan to resign pressure from Trump, with the document beginning with, "At your request, I am submitting my resignation".

Jeff Sessions resigned from his role as USA attorney general in a letter sent to the White House on Wednesday.

The move isn't entirely unexpected, as Trump publicly and privately berated Sessions after the latter recused himself from the investigation into possible collision between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation last March.

Sessions, for instance, directed senior prosecutors to examine potential corruption in a uranium field transaction that some Republicans have said may have implicated Clinton in wrongdoing and benefited donors of the Clinton Foundation.

"Jeff Sessions takes the job, gets into the job, recuses himself, which frankly I think is very unfair to the president", Trump told NYT, referring to himself. Trump had repeatedly called the Russian Federation investigation a "hoax" and questioned why it was still going on. The president held an hour-long news conference right before the announcement, where he said he was "extremely satisfied" with his cabinet.

Schumer then declined to take additional questions from reporters on this subject until after discussing the election, and only opined that he thought the timing was suspect.

Whitaker is a former U.S. Attorney and 2014 Senate candidate in Iowa who joined the Justice Department last fall. "As our country's top law enforcement official, he has been integral in fighting the opioid epidemic, keeping violent criminals off our streets, and supporting victims", the statement read. He had represented Alabama in the chamber since 1997.

"Bob Mueller is totally conflicted", Mr Trump continued but provided no evidence that the team led by Mr Mueller, a Republican appointed by Republicans, is biased against him.

For instance, Sessions moved to lengthen sentences for drug-related charges and moved to restrict federal funding to so-called immigration "sanctuary cities", among other decisions that riled Democrats and even troubled some Republicans.

Because of Sessions's recusal, the special counsel has answered and been accountable to the deputy attorney general, Rod Rosenstein.
