We Hold These Truths To Be Self-Evident

Reported By CBS News

“Jeff Sessions has been forced out as attorney general. “At your request, I am submitting my resignation,” Sessions wrote to the president Wednesday.  President Trump tweeted the news, writing, “We thank Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his service, and wish him well!”

A senior Justice Department official said that White House chief of staff John Kelly called Sessions to request his resignation. The president did not call him. Sessions has repeatedly come under attack by Mr. Trump for recusing himself from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

Matthew G. Whitaker, Sessions’ chief of staff, will now become acting attorney general, and he will also oversee the Russia investigation that the president often refers to as a “witch hunt.” Before Whitaker joined to the Justice Department, he wrote an opinion piece for CNN in August 2017 criticizing the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.

  1. On another site, I read his letter and while he didn’t point any fingers, he did defend himself and his actions in a way that (IMO) definitely said he did what he thought was right … regardless of any “outside influence.”

    I didn’t like him at first, but the way he stood up to tRumpsky towards the end raised him a notch or two in my estimation.
