Trump's firing of Jeff Sessions draws question mark over fate of Russia probe

Could Sessions resignation be an opportunity for Kris Kobach?

"Committees of the United States Congress are conducting investigations parallel to those of the special counsel's office, and preservation of records is critical to ensure that we are able to do our work without interference or delay", the Democrats wrote.

"We thank Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his service, and wish him well!" Justice Department officials said that under normal circumstances, the deputy attorney general would likely play an active, hands-on role in overseeing such a high profile probe, and they had no reason to believe that Rosenstein would now be cut out. "That goes beyond the scope of the appointment of the special counsel."Beyond the Mueller investigation, Whitaker revealed himself to be a hardline conservative when he ran for the U.S. Senate in 2014 before eventually losing in a primary to Sen".

Less than 24 hours after the polls closed around the country, before results from Tuesday's elections were certified, Attorney General Jeff Sessions submitted his resignation.

In pushing out his attorney-general, the President cast aside one of his earliest and strongest supporters.

Christie shocked the Republican establishment after he endorsed then-candidate Donald Trump for president in February 2016 and joined Trump's campaign.

The announcement, which came in a tweet, comes after months of speculation that Sessions could be on his way out after recusing himself from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential elections. "I'm not recused, you're not recused", Conway told reporters.




Sessions took himself out of decision-making on the probe in March 2017 even after Trump dispatched the White House lawyer to persuade him not to do so, according to a person familiar with the matter. Chuck Schumer, said he should recuse himself because of his comments on the probe. Rep.

That left Rosenstein overseeing the investigation, and he named Mueller as special counsel. He also obtained indictments against Russian individuals and companies accused of a sweeping conspiracy to hurt Democrat Hillary Clinton and ultimately to help Trump win. He's won guilty pleas and agreements to cooperate from Trump's campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn.

Sessions sent the message to Justice Department workers on Thursday, a day after he resigned at Trump's request.

He added that if the firing of Mr Sessions is not immediately investigated, the Democratic Congress would make it a priority when it is sworn in in January.

Sessions endured most of the name-calling in silence, though he did issue two public statements defending the department, including one in which he said he would serve "with integrity and honor" for as long as he was in the job.
