Chris Christie Being Considered To Replace Jeff Sessions As Attorney General

Missouri Legalizes Medical Marijuana With Passage of Amendment 2

Trump has told confidants he remains deeply annoyed by the 18-month-old Mueller probe, believing it is not just a "witch hunt" but an expensive and lengthy negative distraction.

"It's very bad for our country", he emphasized repeatedly.

Rosenstein had been overseeing the Russian Federation investigation after Sessions recused himself. However, questions have been raised as to whether the investigation will be safeguarded from Whitaker, who has criticized it in the past.

In this April 24, 2014, file photo, then-Iowa Republican senatorial candidate and former U.S. Attorney Matt Whitaker watches before a live televised debate in Johnston, Iowa.

Democrats raised concerns about Sessions' acting replacement, Matthew Whitaker, who now oversees Mueller and once argued Mueller's probe was going too far. "There is no mistaking what this means, and what is at stake: this is a constitutionally perilous moment for our country and for the president".

In a CNN op-ed previous year, Whitaker wrote, "Mueller has come up to a red line in the Russian Federation 2016 election-meddling investigation that he is dangerously close to crossing". "This is a break-the-glass moment", he said.

Sessions had been protected for much of his tenure by the support of Senate Republicans, including Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley, who had said he would not schedule a confirmation hearing for another attorney general if Trump fired him.

In a shocking special election, Sessions was replaced by Democrat Doug Jones past year, after the Republican candidate, former Alabama Judge Roy Moore, was publicly disgraced when allegations surfaced that he molested teenage girls when he was in his thirties.

A look at the responsibilities of the Justice Department's top two leaders and the special counsel running the department's most consequential and politically sensitive investigation.

President Trump held a watch party at the White House Tuesday evening as results came in, inviting dozens of friends to the East Room, where they dined on an all-American meal of mini hot dogs, hamburgers, French fries and pizza.

"Donald Trump may think he has the power to hire and fire whomever he pleases, but he can not take such action if it is determined that it is for the purposes of subverting the rule of law and obstructing justice", Nadler said in a statement.

That left Rosenstein overseeing the investigation, and he named Mueller as special counsel.

He has also repeatedly criticized Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, which the Justice Department oversees, both in appearances as a CNN commentator and on Twitter. Sessions reportedly resigned at the request of the president.

A political analyst in the state predicted Sessions would run for the seat.

The midterm elections saw the Democrats win control of the lower house of Congress for the first time in eight years, meaning that from January onwards Trump will finally face an opposition that has teeth.

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".
