SESSIONS OUT: Trump House Cleaning Begins As President Asks For And Receives Resignation From Attorney General Jeff Sessions

Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned under pressure Wednesday after more than a year of public criticism from his boss, President Donald Trump. Trump's press secretary Sarah Sanders said the White House received a resignation letter from Sessions, 71, earlier Wednesday and Trump accepted it.

The 71-year-old Sessions departs after the president repeatedly hammered him about his decision last year to recuse himself from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin.

From the moment that Jeff Sessions accepted the role of President Trump’s attorney general, it was clear that he accepted it under false pretenses. Sessions failed to disclose his connections to Russia, and when it came to light he was forced to recuse himself from having an influence in the Mueller Russian Collusion probe.

That had the net effect of basically leaving his boss, Donald Trump, at a distinct disadvantage of getting no help from his own attorney general in defending himself from Robert Mueller. From the moment that happened, Session was on the chopping block. Personally, I am glad to see him leave, Trump needs someone he can count on who will actually be able to help him.

Embattled Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigns under pressure

FROM CNBC: Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned under pressure Wednesday after more than a year of public criticism from his boss, President Donald Trump.

Trump’s press secretary Sarah Sanders said the White House received a resignation letter from Sessions, 71, earlier Wednesday and Trump accepted it.

Sessions, a former senator from Alabama, departs after the president repeatedly hammered him about his decision last year to recuse himself from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin.

“I don’t have an attorney general,” Trump told The Hill in an interview with that news site in September.

Trump says that moment opened the door to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe, which the president has repeatedly called a “witch hunt.”
