BREAKING: Jeff Sessions made an announcement that changed everything

Trump supporters have a love-hate relationship with Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

President Trump has been openly contemplating firing Sessions.

And Jeff Sessions just made an announcement that ended all the rumors.

Jeff Sessions is resigning as attorney general.

He turned in his letter of resignation in the wake of the election results.

CNBC reports:

Embattled Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned at the “request” of President Donald Trump on Wednesday after more than a year of public criticism from the president.

Sessions’s chief of staff Matthew Whitaker will serve as acting attorney general, Trump announced.

Whitaker also will assume oversight of the ongoing investigation by special counsel Robert Mueller into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, and possible collusion by Trump’s campaign in that meddling. Whitaker by law can serve as acting AG for a maximum of 210 days.

Whitaker will have the power to fire Mueller “for cause” as outlined under rules governing the special counsel’s office, if such cause is found.

Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein up till now has had oversight over the Mueller probe, as a result of Sessions’ move to recuse himself from the investigation in 2017.

Donald Trump had held off on firing Sessions until now because of the Mueller probe and the Midterm Elections.

Democrats were itching to have another excuse to attack Trump ahead of voters going to the polls.

But Mueller is looking like he is wrapping up his work.

So now the sweepstakes for the next attorney general begins.

Whoever President Trump taps to take over the helm will allow Trump to make good on his promise to drain the swamp by holding rogue Deep State agents accountable.

Are you glad Jeff Sessions resigned as Attorney General?

  1. Sorry, Mr. Spell Check…”miss use” is not correct. It is “misuse” in case you need to know for the future. You are most welcome.

  2. Theres the big plan to drain the swamp of corrupt idiots and you couldn’t tell what sessions was doing half the time! Trump was the one voted in by the American people and has every right to vote in who he wants! Democraps just want to fight everyone because they know there days are numbered! TRUMP has smart plans and it might be part of it! You never know until it’s done! We will see who ends up in Gitmo and who gets tried for treason! Drain the swamp mr. PRESIDENT

  3. Why does it cost for Mueller to do an investigation when Mueller already has a salary? This is wasting so much money for nothing. They do a job they get paid for and then it costs millions? This is crazy.

  4. Here is the real Truth: President Trump has not done anything that violates the US Constitution. Mueller has spent over $10M in tax payers money and has found no proof of Russian collusion in the 2016 election. All the indictments Mueller claims had nothing to do with Trump or the 2016 election. They were about things that may have happened long before Trump had any desire to run for President.

  5. Perhaps he did used to drink too much. I don’t care. So did I. People can change. I woke up in Jail a few times. But I don’t do that anymore, it’s been several years. But I’m a good citizen. And so is the judge.

  6. A minor delay on Whitaker’s appointment. Sessions was afraid to pick a side. I can’t believe so many democrats have escaped prosecution for so many infractions and that points to Sessions. Hopefully Whittaker will balance things out and if he does have a problem being appointed, I feel bad for the attackers. He worked under Sessions and Rosenstein so he shouldn’t have a problem.

  7. Kavanaugh was a man who clearly had a drinking problem, and became belligerent when he drank. Not taking women accusers alone, but the legion of classmates at Yale and his high school showed that Kavanaugh and his friends were rotten drunks.

  8. You don’t know the law and don’t realize that according to the rules of the DOJ, this guy is not legally there. Sessions indicated in the FIRST LINE of the letter he was ordered to write, that it was at the request of the president – -Trump initiated it. If or until he is confirmed, he is not legit, and Rosenstein, by law, is in charge. Don’t tell me that others are not to spout the constitution — what is your level of expertise in legal matters?! I THOUGHT so, just a overcompensating person who is trying to make himself feel superior, but is not. Peddle that BS to people without college degrees and some knowledge of the constitution.

  9. Not true about FBI — those people risk their lives every day to protect us from domestic and foreign terrorists. They should be praised, not vilified.

  10. By noon, you have one post by Richard and 9 posts giving him crap about it. Why is it so hard to see that you have like zero tolerance for others – – take a look at Sessions – – Trump first pick, certainly did his work on immigrants, but unless you are a complete Trump cult member, you are considered a heretic. Expect many more losses in 2020.

  11. He was fired. George Conway, the husband of White House counselor Kellyanne Conway, co-authored a New York Times op-ed published Thursday that called the Whitaker appointment “unconstitutional.”
    The Appointments Clause of the Constitution, Article II, Section 2, Clause 2, Conway wrote, “means Mr. Trump’s installation of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general of the United States after forcing the resignation of Jeff Sessions is unconstitutional. It’s illegal. And it means that anything Mr. Whitaker does, or tries to do, in that position is invalid.”

  12. Richard,
    Do you have to belittle people who are way smarter than you to feel good?
    You should apology for misogyny and racism to a Black American Republican Lady.
    What a bunch of Leftist Communist low life you are.
    Is Commie Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez smart?
    Is Your psychopath grandma Maxine Water smart?
    Too much MK Ultra In you Eh???

  13. Betty run Betty run to Canada Trudeau will keep you safe from GOD’s Knights.
    This new AG and his army are going to send babies’ killers and your satanists to gitmo.

  14. As usual the real democratic party criminals have skated away without indictments, BHO, Clintons, holder, lynch, Rice and many others who lied cheated or stole from the US Treasury for one thing or another. In the cases of BHO and their Clintons certainly MURDER should also be a part of their prosecutions!

  15. I’ve wondered why DOJ didn’t investigate the DNC on the Dossier incident… Mueller needs to wrap up this investigation and close the case. No evidence of Trump and Russia collusion. Wasting tax payers dollars should be a (for cause) with no evidence.

  16. Why doesn’t the Justice Dep’t get their act together and prove that the Dossier was the cause of the investigation against Trump? The they can fire Mueller (for cause) and not worry about what the Demorats will do or say. This should have been done months ago, as soon as they found out about the Dossier. Then they should have followed up with an investigation into the ones responsible for the crooked Dossier. DUH.

  17. alela, you’re being nice in calling him an “idiot”. At least use capital letters when spelling that word; IDIOT

  18. John, in that case I won’t tell you that your two words “miss use” actually form ONE word and it’s spelled “misuse”yy

  19. I totally agree that Trey Gowdy would be a fabulous AG, however, Gowdy already made his decision to return to S.C., to his family, to his constituents, and his law practice. I don’t think he will change his mind. We can hope, but I doubt it. He definitely would take no prisoners!

  20. Richard, are you saying Trump supporters are all uneducated and stupid? You sound like a Dumb-O-Crap, full of himself, sarcastic, and just Plain Stupid!! So Sharon misspelled a word or two, missed punctuations here and there, is this an English or Spelling class? Just make your comment without the Sarcastic remarks about someone you don’t even know!!

  21. Well stated, J.K….Trump is always steps ahead of the Demorats. Trump knows their games and will outplay them successfully.

  22. Who cares john? I’m not an English teacher and most of the people whom post messages are either. Our messages are clear.

  23. Wouldn’t we all love to know what was/is behind Clinton not being investigated for ALL of her criminal acts…throw in Billy, and you could be investigating, and bringing in multiple indictments for many crimes, including collusion and MURDER…and, not just ONE MURDER…MULTIPLE MURDERS!

  24. What is with all the ignorant miss use of grammar on here? In the above comments there are a dozen times when the comment writer uses YOUR when YOU’RE should have been used (as in “you are”. There is nothing more ironic than calling out a commentator DUMB when your grammar clearly demonstrates that you are ignorant yourself!

  25. Mark Levin a TV commentator on the Hannity show is the one for the job.
    He knows his law and will not take any gaff from the liberals.
    He will drain the swamp and bring all the deep state criminals to justice.

  26. Typical lib….can’t bust her logic so taunt her over her grammar, call her names, make fun of her….yet YOU say that Trump and conservatives are hate mongers. Evidently, you don’t have mirrors in your house, cause if you did, that man in the mirror would chastise you for being so crude. If you reread, your grammar was also …’not’…perfect.

  27. ~ She has Bad Mouthed President Trump several times , besides previously never held any Government office she was just High in the chain at HP Computers as a Glorified Secretary basically she really has not earned the position of the DOJ …..Trey Gowdy now or someone with some real Law Background Like Judge Jeanne and she’s a “GET-ER-Done ” GAL so that’s a hell of a better choice than a Newbe Carly Fiorina. ~

  28. Trey Gowdy would be the best choice but I doubt he would accdept since he is a man of integrity and has already said he want’s to go to private life. Haley might be a good choice. She’s got iron in her. Junine is a good choice too as long as she is as tough in action as she is in opinion. She calls it Honest.

  29. they are lame threats , but if you can’t get anyone to enforce these things, that includes some of the republicans, the AG, all democrats, what could you get done?

  30. FORMER PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATE CARLY FIORINA,WOULD BE GOOD CHOICE TOO,FOR SHE WOULD BETTER THAN SESSION’S.

  31. A “love-hate” relationship? I do not know one single Trump supporter who thought that Sessions was doing a good job. Sessions was the worst appointment ever! In addition to doing nothing as Attorney General, actually not nothing as he facilitated the Mueller investigation, his seat in the Senate was lost to a Democrat. Sessions was a disaster!

  32. Exactly, this would make a great movie if it was`.nt all true As it is ,it`s just gut wrenching . AND what really pisses me off is that we are paying for it all

  33. I think Jeffy was in it real deep, along with a lot of the others that are still there , and that he was a plant for the whole dam bunch so nothing would happen to them ,if it came to light ,{ there are so many examples of that , right now } and nothing has been done to any of them . So what does that tell you ????

  34. Don`t get me wrong I really like Gowdy, but I think he might be to middle of the road , for who needs to be in there at this time . Judge Jeannie , { If she would be as tough as she talks } Would be even better then Gowdy. Gowdy says he wants out anyway so I doubt if he is even being asked . Jeannie and Gowdy would be a pair to draw to

  35. Don`t get me wrong I really like Gowdy, but I think he might be to middle of the road , for who needs to be in there at this time . Judge Jeannie , { If she would be as tough as she talks } Would be even better then Gowdy. Gowdy says he wants out anyway so I doubt if he is even being asked . Jeannie and Gowdy would be a pair to draw to

  36. Finally the Justice Department will have someone that carry Trumps agenda. Good luck to Jeff Sessions service to the country.

  37. Sessions, didn’t really “want to do this job”……’BUT”, wanted the “glory”…..Probably, America, will never know what the “Librocrats”, had on Sessions, to make him “perform” the way he did…….Hillary, should have already been in “JAIL”!

  38. Richard……..
    ‘uneducated and not very bright’? You should apologize to Sharon! Your reply is a couple of fries short of a happy meal, but typical of a democrap!

  39. poor Richard……”needs an almanac”……..Does everyone need to write to your satisfaction?…….Pretty sharp & rude critisizm, for an ‘adult”!….{ Most Libtrocats, just don’t get it”!…..{ Go “get it” Richard! }………..:O{{{

  40. Interesting chapter blotted in Trump presidential history. He recused himself. For whatever reason in his mind is yet to be found out. My best bet is that he was there all along at the time. Perhaps with McCain. Who knows?

  41. Sharon,
    Are you always this stupid; you write like 2nd grader and sound to me like typical Trump supporters…..uneducated and not very bright.

  42. It was way over due!!! He betrayed then Candidate Trump!! He betrayed his state, where he should of stayed, now his seat is taken by a Dem! Thanks Mr. Magoo!

  43. Good bye little mouse man,go back into your little hole with that bug piece of cheese that the Democrats paid you. Good riddens and fair well little mouse to bad that big trap hasn’t got you yet but some where down the road just maybe justice are should I say karma will come and visit you! This day didn’t come soon enough! Toodles say hello to Jerry and hope Tom has you for dinner one day! ????

  44. not hart just has to look for an ass kisser that is as crocked as trump but that might be hard to find someone even more corrupt as all of them the best thing that could happen is congress impeach everyone and after they impeach everyone for the best reason of we don’t need anymore immature idiots in dc and after they impeach all of them then impeach themselves and start fresh with somebody that really wants to do the job and not screw the american citizens while lining there pockets and lying to us while saying this truth not the truth isn’t the truth bs

  45. Other than the fact that this needed to happen to bring the Mueller investigation to an end, it also serves notice to the incoming Dems House Majority to not mess with Trump. Simply, if they want to come in and start holding up the progress than Trump will have an AG that, at a moments notice, will start criminal investigations on a myriad of Democrat politicians. It is also why he concentrated and campaigned more on picking up seats in the Senate, because he knew he was making this move, which made the House expendable. The House Dems will fail and the Reps will win it back in 2020. This is, yet another example of how Trump is always several steps ahead of these career politicians.

  46. Good riddance. He is a blight on our constitutional freedom of choice. The war on drugs needs to be ended with prejudice.

  47. It’s about time. About 2 years too late, he’s been sleeping at the switch. This country needs an AG that leads instead of recusal. He should have stepped aside and let President select someone who would clean out corruption abounding in top positions at Justice Dept.& FBI.

  48. Yes, he should have quit a long time ago. After the Corruption in the Obama’s Administration, I want looking for someone to finally do his Job.

  49. Sessions was a useless eunuch! He even cited the wrong law as reason for his recusal with regard to the career criminal Mueller’s witch hunt. I believe Sessions is a part of the deep state swamp. I glad he is gone. About time! I like Judge Jeanine Pirro for the AG job. I hope “The Donald feels” the same way. And may God bless President Trump and his family! MAGA!!

  50. President Trump is by far the best in 60 years. All the blame is on the democrats hands. You cant treat crazy snowflakes with respect, when they can’t accept they lost in 2016. Look at the Kavanaugh nominee. What adult person beats and scratch on doors. Just one big show showing they can’t accept the very best.

  51. Yes I am glad that Jeff Sessions has finally resigned, it was long overdue. A lot of the false prosecutions, harassment, and obstructionism could have been properly dealt with, had Mr. Sessions only done his job. I pray that the President will be able to find a qualified person to fill the position of attorney general. Someone that will work with the President and for the American people and not against.

  52. Lol…we see omarosa is still around. She did work for the Clinton white house. Had she written about them there would not have been an omagrossa.

  53. He is a treasonous weasel, any true patriot would never have allowed for an investigation on fabricated charges in the 1st place and then recusing himself for conflict of interest which also did not exist.

  54. I was not a fan of Sessions…
    but I believe that Trump FIRED SESSIONS after ducking every time
    anyone attempted to get an answer out of him – just like he did this
    morning with reporters.
    Vietnam era veteran

  55. Exactly, lost over a year. And lost his senate seat too when he took the AG job. We need a Judge Jeannine in there or someone as tough as her.

  56. I doubt the Deep State is done for, lame threats by Trump is all I have heard for 2 years, drain the swamp, yeah right.

  57. His big problem was he didn’t want to jail anybody. Hillay is still lose and the women that framed the jsc . No law or order. I would have been on them so quick and they would be in jail. Democrats get away with everything.

  58. Happy Days are here again. I am from Alabama and have been disapointed in Sessions. I gues it’s Reiirement Timewe have a place waiting for you.

  59. Mr Sessions is probably a very nice man. But he was a lousy AG. Sometimes I felt like he was being played by the Dems.
    I’d like to see Joe Digenoiva (sp?) as AG.

  60. PRESIDENT Trump has been remarkably calm and dignified in dealing with rude bullying such as your example displays. A wakeup call is in order for uninformed puppets.

  61. I figured that it was because of the mid-terms and Mueller that he didn’t fire Sessions the day after he recused himself. It is a great day after all, maybe we will see some of the corrupt individuals go to jail, or at the very least be barred from any government job in the future. I hope they all lose their retirement and all benefits too.

  62. There is only one president at a time, the Chief Executive, and all his department heads are suppose to follow his policy : not to form their own. All his appointees that cannot follow the Chief, should resign. Remember General Douglass McAuthor when he planned to invade China in opposition to his orders ? The President fired him !!!!

  63. I’ve been wondering if Sessions was a member of the deep stste or was he just afraid of becoming an involuntary suicide like several dozen others. He did some work on illegal invaders but wouldn’t touch any of the Clinton-Obama crimes.

  64. it was obvious that Rosenstien, Sessions, Comey, all those people are all part of the deep state, all republicans.. just because you are republicans does not mean you are not part of the deep state!!!!!

  65. “Meuller is wrapping up his work,” yeah I guess there has been a little work. If you call intimidation, conspiracy, and blackmail work. For democrats it’s just a game they play.

  66. …you mean like the respect that just about EVERY msm ‘crat propagandist gives to the President…and all the respect that the ‘crat fascists give to EVERYBODY who disagrees with them?? You mean THAT respect??
    YOU are a horrid AND delusional person!!!!!

  67. I AM SO SO HAPPY !

    Mueller should have been shut down long ago and PROSECUTED FOR HIS CORRUPT DEEP STATE CRIMINAL WASTE OF TAX PAYERS MOMEY AND TIME

    WHAT A DESPICABLE JOKE TO THIS ENTIRE CORRUPT GOVERNMENT !

  68. One minute you love him, the next you hate him. Sounds just like the “Donald” he may like that person till they don’t agree with (even 1 time) and your trash to him. Trump obviously was never raised to respect anyone other than himself. As most of us were taught in “elementary” school in order to get respect you need to show respect and unfortunately that’s something the “dictator” was never taught by his “rich” parents. He is a “horrid” human being!!!!!!!!

  69. I knew all along that Jeff Sessions was just another Democrat in Republican clothing. He did what the Democrats wanted him to do by blocking all of the Presidents moves and now that the Democrats took the House he was done doing what the Democrats wanted him to do so now he resigns as Attorney General. A real backstabber.

  70. Now we can get a real investigation on the commiecrats pulling dirty tricks. Crooked killery might get justice.
