Rosenstein was relieved of his duties overseeing Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller’s Russian “collusion” probe this afternoon after Attorney Jefferson B. Sessions resigned.
Big League Politics reported:
President Trump just announced that Matthew G. Whitaker, Sessions’ Chief of Staff, has became acting Attorney General after Sessions’ resignation.
“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,” President Trump said in a series of tweets.
Sessions later confirmed his resignation.
