Attorney General Jeff Sessions was fired Wednesday, leaving a host of questions about what comes next for the ongoing special counsel probe, criminal justice and immigration enforcement.
Formally, Mr. Sessions resigned, but the move came at President Trump’s request less than 24 hours after the midterm elections.
Mr. Trump said on Twitter he’s named Matthew G. Whitaker, the current department chief of staff, to become acting attorney general, leapfrogging Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
“He will serve our country well,” the president said of Mr. Whitaker. “We thank Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his service and wish him well! A permanent replacement will be nominated at a later date.”
