Sessions submitted his resignation to the president which he accepted. Trump said that Matthew G. Whitaker, the Chief of Staff for Sessions, would serve as Acting Attorney General in his place.

“A permanent replacement will be nominated at a later date,” he said.

A copy of Sessions’ resignation letter said the move was “at your [Trump’s] request.”
