Attorney General Jeff Sessions submits resignation letter

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.

In a resignation letter, Mr Sessions said he "worked to implement the law enforcement agenda" that Mr Trump campaigned on. When his letter of resignation was published, it showed that the president has asked him to resign - effectively firing the embattled attorney.

Were he nominated, this wouldn't be Kobach first time in the Trump Administration.

Mr Sessions' departure was announced by Donald Trump on Wednesday, hours after he gave a press conference about the midterm elections results.

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions has endured more than a year of criticism from Donald Trump.

However, his decision to recuse himself from directing the special investigation into the 2016 election by Robert Mueller earned him the president's ire, and it was something Trump came back to time and again over the past year in interviews and on social media, sometimes belittling Sessions in the process.

The full implications Sessions' exit may have on Mueller's investigation were not immediately clear.

Senate Democratic leader Chuck Schumer of NY said at a news conference in Washington that "protecting Mueller and his investigation is paramount" and it "would create a constitutional crisis if this were a prelude to ending or greatly limiting the Mueller investigation". Whitaker is a former USA district attorney from Iowa.

Nadler says he wants to know why Trump is making the change and "who has authority over Special Counsel Mueller's investigation?" "He will serve our Country well", Trump tweeted.

The move left unclear the fate of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller and has overseen his probe from the beginning.

As The Washington Post noted, Whitaker has made public statements expressing skepticism towards the Mueller investigation.

Cummings is set to chair his committee in January when Democrats take control of the House.

Mr Trump has repeatedly pilloried his top law enforcement official since Mr Sessions stepped aside from the Russian Federation investigation in March 2017, allowing his deputy Rod Rosenstein to lead an inquiry that has dogged the White House. According to a CNN article, Mueller's investigators could be looking into financial records relating to the Trump Organization that are unrelated to the 2016 election.
