Schumer says new AG must protect Mueller probe

BREAKING Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigns at President Trump’s request

Jeff Sessions resigns as attorney general at Trump's request

Donald Trump never liked the way Jeff Sessions couldn't kill the Russian Federation investigation - on account of being up to his eyeballs in it himself - and he always wanted to kick his caricature of an AG to the curb.

"But first you're going to see turmoil because you're going to see Sessions resigning, maybe as soon as today, tomorrow, this week before he's fired", she said.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned Wednesday as the country's chief law enforcement officer after enduring more than a year of blistering and personal attacks over recusing himself from the Russian Federation investigation.

"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.

"The Senate must demand that any nominee for attorney general must commit to not interfere in the special counsel investigation, and continue to have Robert Mueller operate under the special counsel regulation", Romero's statement said.

And while a majority of legal states only allow the cultivation of six cannabis plants per individual, MI will allow 12 . Violations of the law would result in civil infractions or criminal charges, depending on the severity of the offense.

In the long run, Sessions is convinced that the country will be better served by the investigation proceeding naturally, as the findings will be more credible to the American public, the person said.

"According to NBC News, Voters Nationwide Disapprove of the so-called Mueller Investigation (46%) more than they Approve (41%)".

Sessions, a former U.S. senator for Alabama, was one of the earliest supporters of, but nearly immediately ran into controversy in the new administration. In another tweet, Trump thanked Sessions "for his service" and said "a permanent replacement will be nominated at a later date".

Whitaker added in the piece that "it is time for [Rod] Rosenstein...to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation". Unlike Sessions, Whitaker is not recused from any campaign-related issues, as he was not part of the Trump campaign. Earlier this year, Mr. Trump said had had "no attorney general".

The broadsides escalated in recent months, with Trump telling a television interviewer that Sessions "had never had control" of the Justice Department and snidely accusing him on Twitter of not protecting Republican interests by allowing two GOP congressmen to be indicted before the election.
