US President Donald Trump forced out Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday, less than 24 hours after the Republican party lost control of the House of Representatives.
On Twitter, Trump thanked Sessions for his service and wished him well. He said Matthew G Whitaker, Sessions’s chief of staff, would become the acting attorney general until a replacement is announced, which the president said would come at a later date.
