Democrats warn Trump after Attorney General Sessions forced out

Michigan's Medical Marijuana Licensing Mess Isn't Over Yet

A separate letter from the Democrats called on Whitaker to recuse himself and keep the Mueller investigation under the supervision of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, a career Justice Department official who has given the special counsel full scope to pursue leads.

Nathan Berry said she saw Trump's firing of Jeff Sessions as a clear undermining of the Russian probe. The next attorney general could enjoy some more flexibility when it comes to enforcing federal marijuana laws.

He has also written that he believes the Mueller probe has gone too far and that Trump's finances should be off limits to the special counsel.

In one appearance, he defended a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting between Trump Jr. and a Kremlin-connected Russian lawyer, saying, "You would always take that meeting".

One is simply by declining to continue to pay the investigators or attorneys working for the special counsel. Under those rules, he could only be discharged for good cause, such as misconduct or dereliction of duty, such as violating department policy.

Moscow denies interfering in the 2016 election.

Democrats have slammed Whitaker's appointment to replace Sessions, arguing that Trump is trying to undermine Mueller and demanding that Whitaker recuse himself from supervising the Mueller investigation due to his writings and public comments attacking the investigation. The firm's name was changed to Hagenow & Gustoff when Whitaker left in September of previous year to become Sessions' chief of staff at the Justice Department.

Spats between Trump and journalists can sometimes seem circus-like, but critics say the president's hot temper illustrates his deeper disdain for Washington norms - and allegedly for the law. Whitaker has publicly outlined strategies to stifle the investigation and can not be allowed to remain in charge of it.

Democratic Representative Jerrold Nadler, expected to chair the House Judiciary Committee starting in January, said removing Sessions fit Trump's pattern of interfering in the work of the Justice Department and Mueller. "I could fire everybody right now, but I don't want to stop it because politically I don't like stopping it", Trump said at a stormy White House press conference that was even more tempestuous than the standard he has set.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions has resigned at the request of President Donald Trump, according to a letter delivered to the White House, after becoming a target of the president's open contempt for ceding control of the Russian Federation investigation.

Trump had repeatedly criticized Sessions for recusing himself from any investigation into potential Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election.

According to USA media reports on Thursday, Mueller's team have started writing the final report of the investigation. "This would not only be out of character for a respected figure like Mueller, but also could be damaging to the President of the United States and his family - and by extension, to the country", he wrote.

Democrats, who won the lower house of Congress in Tuesday's midterm elections, now see Trump as close to crossing that line with the ultimate goal of covering up alleged crimes.
