"Committees of the United States Congress are conducting investigations parallel to those of the special counsel's office, and preservation of records is critical to ensure that we are able to do our work without interference or delay", the Democrats wrote. He tweeted that "we will be holding people accountable". "Dear Mr. President, at your request I am submitting my resignation", he wrote.

There is some question whether Mr Sessions was sacked or resigned.

"It is time for Rosenstein, who is the acting attorney general for the purposes of this investigation, to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation to the four corners of the order appointing him special counsel".

A coalition of organizations nationwide has called for a rapid-response protocol, referred to by some of the groups as the "Trump is Not Above the Law" campaign, in which more than 400,000 people across more than 900 locations have pledged to protest under certain circumstances relating to special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Trump and Russian Federation.

Gonzales, who was the attorney general in George W. Bush's administration from 2005 to 2007, said he doesn't know Whitaker, his qualifications or motivations, but there's a lot that calls into question his appointment. Chuck Schumer, said he should recuse himself because of his comments on the probe. Rep.

Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller and has overseen his probe from the beginning will stay in his post, according to the official. Trump has already fired James Comey, the FBI director originally overseeing the investigation. The president has long regarded Whitaker as his eyes and ears inside a department that he considers an enemy institution.

The game marked the first time Kentucky faced a ranked opponent in a season opener since a 79-71 overtime loss to Clemson in 1995. Freshman wing Tyler Herro added 14 points, nine rebounds and five assists. "I think he could be because of his natural ability".

"There is no case for obstruction of justice because the president has all the power of the executive and delegates that to people like the Federal Bureau of Investigation director and the attorney general", Whitaker argued.

Meanwhile, President Donald Trump's legal team has begun working with the president to craft responses to questions from Mueller's team as part of their investigation, sources close to Trump told ABC. Those prosecutors have secured Cohen's cooperation in ongoing investigations, as well as that of Allen Weisselberg, a longtime accountant for the Trump family's real estate empire.

When President Donald Trump came to the Capital City to support Kris Kobach's bid for governor, he joked with the crowd he kind of hoped the Republican nominee didn't win.

In pushing out his attorney-general, the President cast aside one of his earliest and strongest supporters.

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. In the past, Whitaker has voiced his disapproval of the Mueller investigation in an Op-Ed on CNN titled "Mueller's investigation of Trump is going too far". His recusal was one of his first public acts as attorney-general. Sessions, in Trump's mind, had betrayed that axiom.
