Jeff Sessions Is Out - Slog

Jeff Sessions resigns as attorney general at Trump's request

Sessions submitted his resignation to the president which he accepted.

"Any investigation into President Trump's finances or the finances of his family would require Mueller to return to Rod Rosenstein for additional authority under Mueller's appointment as special counsel", he wrote.

At a post-election press conference earlier on Wednesday, Trump had declined to answer a question about Sessions' future in his administration. "A permanent replacement will be named at a later date", Trump said.

Jeff Sessions has resigned as Attorney General following consistent criticism from President Donald Trump.

Jeff Sessions, the attorney general, has been fired by Donald Trump, ending a long-running feud with the president over the Russian Federation investigation. "In my time at Attorney General, we have restored and upheld the rule of law -- a glorious tradition that each of us has a responsibility to safeguard".

In Paris that year, he also became the first player to break through the $100 million (87.8 million euro) prize money barrier. Only a semi-final defeat at the French Open prevented him from becoming just the third man to capture a calendar Grand Slam.


"I look forward to working with President @realDonaldTrump to find a confirmable, worthy successor so that we can start a new chapter at the Department of Justice and deal with both the opportunities and challenges our nation faces", he tweeted. The special counsel eventually sent an investigation of Trump's finances to the U.S. Attorney of the Southern District of NY - presumably because he felt it was outside his mandate.

That move could draw legal scrutiny.

Mr Trump tweeted that Matthew G Whitaker, Mr Sessions' chief of staff, would become Acting Attorney-General.

On July 25, the president wrote the attorney general "has taken a VERY weak position on Hillary Clinton crimes (where are E-mails & DNC server) & Intel leakers!" He seemed stunned by the development.

Asked whether Whitaker would assume control over Mueller's investigation, Justice Department spokeswoman Sarah Flores said Whitaker would be "in charge of all matters under the purview of the Department of Justice".

It is through the New Mexico Film Office that word of the secret project made it to the Albuquerque Journal . The ambitious production requires 300 local crew members, 16 actors and approximately 450 background actors.


The departure was not unexpected, though.

Sessions, 71, was the first U.S. senator to endorse Trump, and in many ways he had been the biggest supporter of the President's policies on immigration, crime and law enforcement.

That led to a series of personal attacks by the president who repeatedly called Mr. Sessions names ranging from "an idiot" to "disgraceful".

The president's frustrations with his attorney general have at times publicly boiled into what appeared to be anger over many issues related to the Justice Department's Russian Federation election meddling probe.
