    Smart move on his part...now Trump will have no issues getting the AG he wants, thanks to the Red Wave in the Senate. I expect massive investigations into the DNC, Clintons, Obama DOJ, and individual members of Congress, such as Sen Frankenstein and her leaky office.

    We are pleased to announce that Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General of the United States. He will serve our Country well....

    ....We thank Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his service, and wish him well! A permanent replacement will be nominated at a later date.

    Mueller investigation has now taken on a new light as Matthew G. Whitaker takes it over. Where does it go from here?

    Great, now Trump can get someone in there before the change of guard and bring charges up on Hillary, the ex- Attorney General and members of the FBI. If the Left is going after Trump, Trump will go after them.

    Seconded.

    Heres to hoping Trump finds someone willing to push Anti-Trust actions on Big Comm-Tech and investigate progressive treason instead of crusading against weed.

    Its house cleaning time. Good thing Republicans increased in the Senate, Trump will have even fewer problems getting his choices through confirmation. Sessions, Rosenstein, and a few others need to go, so let it begin...

    This is horrible news for the Democrats and the resistance.

    The "Blue Wave" was nothing more than a beach break and now there's an undertow and we all know that Democratic hodads don't surf or can swim.

    Trump is playing chess, while the "Blue Floppers" are playing checkers.

    I doubt it, but if that’s where this goes it will not be well received. Firing his hand picked AG and installing a political hatchet man to squash an ongoing investigation into Trumps administration then go on a rampage against former and present political adversaries won’t look good. However it does seem like something Trump would do. We’ll see.

    This may be where Trump goes off the rails. Let's see how much the Republican Party can stomach.

    Trump's crew isn't doing badly in other areas though, and typically there are changes at midterms. DOJ is about the only place that needs a good house cleaning. Everything else is sufficient. Now that midterms are over, are they going to finally address Rosenstein's alleged 'wire' comments? That's still unresolved...

    Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) told reporters Thursday, "if Jeff Sessions is fired, there will be holy hell to pay."

    Trump: "hey Lindsey, would you like more power?"

    On Thursday, Graham told reporters that the president is “entitled to an attorney general he has faith in,” and that he expects Trump to fire Sessions “sooner rather than later.”

    "Resigned"? Read the first line. He was fired.
