US Attorney-General Jeff Sessions fired by Donald Trump

Could Sessions resignation be an opportunity for Kris Kobach?

Answering allegations that the White House had used a clip edited by a notorious right-wing conspiracy theorist, Trump spokeswoman Sarah Sanders said: "We stand by our statement". "It's not ok for someone to break the law and be above the law".

The forced resignation of Jeff Sessions as USA attorney general has raised questions about the future of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election.

People gathered around 5 p.m.at Thomas Paine Plaza next to Philly's Municipal Services Building, then marched toward Independence Hall and the Liberty Bell before returning to Paine Plaza.

An ever-more exasperated Trump ordered him to give up the mic and Acosta refused, with Trump branding him an "enemy of the people" and a "rude, awful person".

The former federal prosecutor served as Sessions' chief of staff for one year.

They joined protests in cities across the U.S. Crowds also turned out in Chicago; Greensboro, North Carolina; Chattanooga, Tennessee, and many other places.

Trump Jr. has reportedly told pals he is anxious about being arrested this week following the midterm elections and the firing of top United States lawman Jeff Sessions.

More alarmingly for Democrats, Mr Whitaker himself had outlined a specific way to stymie the Russian Federation probe. Trump criticized Sessions for recusing himself from the Russian Federation investigation.

He has, for instance, talked down the Mueller investigation on a number of TV talk shows.

Rosenstein has, until now, overseen the investigation and given Mueller the support he needs.

And it has ultimately left Liverpool with real work to do in their final games away to PSG and at home to Napoli. Red Star are expected to be without Vujadin Savic due to injury but Marko Marin is set to return to the squad.

In an editorial for CNN.com a year ago, Whitaker made clear that he believes the president's personal finances are off limits to special counsel Robert Mueller.

The investigation has been a thorn in Trump's side since it began.

Robert Mueller should not be allowed to investigate Trump's finances. I hope he goes and runs for his old Senate seat in Alabama.

In a July 10, 2017, appearance on CNN, Whitaker shrugged off the idea that the Trump Tower meeting could be part of a criminal conspiracy.

"Based on my experience with Matt", said John Richter, a former U.S. Attorney in Oklahoma and high-ranking Bush administration Justice Department official, "I think he will act consistently with the best traditions of the department and call things as he sees them".

Graham at the time said: "Any effort to go after Mueller could be the beginning of the end of the Trump presidency".

In 2017 he even used Trump's words, warning against Mueller engaging in a "witch hunt".

Once that happens, a Democratic majority could use subpoena power not only to pursue any avenues of investigation that are limited by Whitaker, but to probe why he took such steps. "Worth a read", he tweeted.

People all over the country subscribed to an email list that would be activated if Trump appeared to be interfering with the investigation into his campaign.

It's also possible, amid reports that Mueller is writing his report, that his prosecutors haven't found any evidence of collusion, or obstruction, and he'll be wrapping up soon.
