Donald Trump moved to impede the Russian Federation investigation on Wednesday by replacing Attorney General Jeff Sessions with a temporary successor, Matthew Whitaker, who argued previous year that Special Counsel Robert Mueller should be barred from investigating the president's finances.
The White House said Sessions resigned in a letter to Trump on November 7 and that the president had accepted his resignation as chief of the Justice Department - a move that immediately raised concerns from Democrats, who called for protection for the probe conducted by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Whitaker is expected to take charge of the the Russian Federation investigation and special counsel Robert Mueller from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Rod Rosenstein, the deputy attorney general, later appointed Special Counsel Robert Mueller to lead the probe. He backed the President despite the barrage of attacks and in his resignation letter thanked Mr Trump for the opportunity to serve.
The US President fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday, hours after he gave a press conference about the midterm elections.
