You don't have to wonder. It's Matthew Whitaker (see the several earlier posts in this thread).

One hope that Trump will replace him quickly, but very very carefully.

Wonder if Lindsey Graham plans to follow through on this.

Well,Sessions wasn’t fired. He simply resigned.

We certainly have enough votes in the Senate to confirm him after the end of the year, so if Good Old Jeff finishes out the year, that's ok too.

I wonder what Trey Gowdy's plans are?  Roll Eyes

According to his letter (which isn't dated btw), Sessions submitted his resignation at Trump's request. In other words, he was fired. The "resignation" does give Trump the legal ability to appoint Whitaker as acting AG, and Whitaker will now oversee the Russia probe.

Here is a copy of the letter:

The lack of a date begs the question of how long Trump has had this letter.

Trump was asked about Sessions specifically and if others would be leaving, at today's presser. The President said that it is pretty common that Administrations have personnel changes after the midterms.  He wouldn't be specific about who might be going. He was asked if Gen. Kelly was going and he said something like he hadn't heard that he wanted to leave.

Jeff's resignation is immediate, and Whitaker has already taken over as acting AG.

I guess that's how the Keebler cookie crumbles.

I've never been a fan of Sessions, but I did admire how he stood up to the world's biggest bully.

Seems like he knew Sessions was gone and has probably had that letter for a while.
