I have been a big fan of Senator Jeff Sessions. Not so much Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Glad this problem has finally been address. There is lots of talent out there. There is currently a state attorney general newly out of a job due to term limits: Florida’s Pam Bondi. Hmm…


Embattled Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned at the “request” of President Donald Trump on Wednesday after more than a year of public criticism from the president.

Sessions’s chief of staff Matthew Whitaker will serve as acting attorney general, Trump announced.

Whitaker also will assume oversight of the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and possible collusion by Trump’s campaign in that meddling.

Trump’s press secretary Sarah Sanders said the White House received a resignation letter from Sessions, 71, earlier Wednesday and Trump accepted it.

Sessions’ letter to Trump begins by saying, “At your request, I am submitting my resignation.”

Sessions, a former senator from Alabama, departs after the president repeatedly hammered him about his decision last year to recuse himself from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin.

    Finally! Very sad how impotent Sen. Sessions became as A.G. Sessions. He should have stayed in the Senate if he was going to wimp out so royally as Attorney General. And now, he can enjoy his retirement.

    Of course, the Dems will use this as an excuse to try to impeach Trump.

    Would this have happened if Dems had won the Senate? I think yes, but what a circus that would be.

    I want to know what changed Sessions? Funny how the libs are supporting him? Maybe because of his do nothing attitude.
    I think he was compromised in some way.
