Jeff Sessions Resigns As Attorney General At Trump's Request, Matthew Whitaker Takes His Place

Just like that, the midterms are out of the news cycle!

From Fox News:
Jeff Sessions, once one of President Trump’s most loyal and trusted advisers before infuriating Trump over his recusal from the Russia investigation, has resigned as attorney general at the request of the president.

“At your request, I am submitting my resignation,” Sessions wrote in a Wednesday letter to Trump.

The president tweeted that Matthew Whitaker, chief of staff to Sessions, will become the acting attorney general. Whitaker, according to sources, is now overseeing everything at the Justice Department, including the Russia investigation -- despite calls from Democrats to recuse himself.
“We are pleased to announce that Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General of the United States. He will serve our Country well,” he said.

Trump added: “We thank Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his service, and wish him well! A permanent replacement will be nominated at a later date.”

Sources told Fox News that Trump did not call Sessions, but rather White House Chief of Staff John Kelly informed him of the president’s request that he resign. Sessions is expected to leave the Justice Department by the end of the day, and Whitaker is expected to take over immediately.

In his resignation letter, Sessions said he was “honored to serve” as attorney general and said his Justice Department “restored and upheld the rule of law – a glorious tradition that each of us has a responsibility to safeguard.”

Whitaker seems like a good replacement when it comes to the Russia witch hunt:

Ann Coulter was upset by the news Sessions was out and said he should be appointed the head of Homeland Security with Kris Kobach put in as AG:

That sounds like a great idea.

We need an activist AG to be for Republicans what Eric Holder was for Democrats. Jeff Sessions is an old school conservative and he played it too straight.

For example, rather than shut down the Obama regime's billion dollar slush fund used to funnel money to far-left activist groups, he should have just redirected that money to right-wing activist groups like the Center for Immigration Studies, Federation for American Immigration Reform, National Rifle Association and so on.

If this election showed us anything it's that we need radical change if we're to survive. Hopefully, Whitaker will be the hero we need.
