Biggest concern after AG Jeff Sessions' dismissal is the Russian Federation investigation

Midterm Election Results Coverage On The Late Show With Stephen Colbert

Sessions' relationship with Trump soured after he recused himself from the investigation into potential coordination between Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, which prompted the appointment of Mueller as special counsel to lead the probe. "In my role as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I look forward to meeting with acting Attorney General Whitaker soon and have confidence he will do a professional job in this position".

Two days after he hired a transparent political hack to run the Justice Department, President Trump has failed to come up with a remotely plausible cover story. The rally was one of many across the country in reaction to Trump's appointing Whitaker.

Trump dismissed an op-ed by George Conway, a lawyer and husband of top aide Kellyanne Conway, who argued that Whitaker's appointment is "unconstitutional" and "illegal".

Whitaker, who had a stint as a legal commentator for CNN, has been vocal in his criticism of Mueller's investigation and its scope.

In a goodbye message to staff, Jeff Sessions says his time serving as President Donald Trump's attorney general "goes beyond anything I ever would have thought possible".

Democrats have criticized Whitaker for comments he has made in the past that were critical of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation and have called for legislation to protect Mueller.

Protests in at least 900 cities nationwide, aimed at protecting Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, are planned for Thursday.

Trump also verbally attacked a female reporter when she asked him if he wanted Whitaker to "rein in" Mueller.

Since Wednesday, Whitaker has faced pressure from Democrats to recuse himself from overseeing Mueller based on critical comments he made about the investigation before joining the Justice Department a year ago.

Whitaker has questioned Mueller's authority to investigate aspects of Trump's election campaign and suggested how to end the investigation: by cutting its budget. "However, we do not believe increased Democratic oversight will prevent Whitaker or his successor from restricting Mueller's work".

Oil tanker and frigate collide off Norway, 7 injured
The frigate is believed to be the KNM Helge Ingstad , which took part in NATO's massive Trident Juncture 2018 wargames. Pictures show the 5,290 ton, 440 foot frigate lying low in the water as it sinks beneath the waves.


Trump also complained to reporters that Mueller had not been confirmed by the U.S. Senate. A person familiar with the matter said he got on the White House's radar via conservative circles in Iowa, his TV appearances and his connections with the Federalist Society and other conservative groups.
