Jeff Sessions is out. [] The new Acting Attorney General is Matthew G. Whitaker:

President Donald Trump on Wednesday fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions []. "At your request I am submitting my resignation," Sessions wrote in a letter [] to White House chief of staff John Kelly.

Matthew Whitaker will take over as acting attorney general, the President said. Whitaker is expected to take charge of the Russia investigation and special counsel Robert Mueller from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Whitaker has been openly critical of Mueller and the investigation and Democrats immediately called on him to recuse himself, just as Sessions had.
