Jeff Sessions out as Attorney General
  • Jeff Sessions fired: Sessions told Trump he was resigning "at your request" as the US Attorney General a day after the midterm elections.
  • Matthew Whitaker will take over as acting attorney general, the President said. His responsibilities will include the Russia investigation.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions received no phone call from President Trump, according to an administration official.

The call to Sessions came from Chief of Staff John Kelly this morning. There is no word yet on when Matthew Whitaker will be sworn in and whether special counsel Robert Mueller was told ahead of time.

Sessions was still in the building and was expected to leave by the end of the day, the official said.
