Jeff Sessions’ Resignation Letter

DC: President Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and replaced him with Sessions’ chief of staff, Trump announced by tweet Wednesday.

“We are pleased to announce that Matthew G. Whitaker, Chief of Staff to Attorney General Jeff Sessions at the Department of Justice, will become our new Acting Attorney General of the United States,” Trump tweeted. “He will serve our Country well. We thank Attorney General Jeff Sessions for his service, and wish him well! A permanent replacement will be nominated at a later date.”

Sessions’ letter of resignation indicates he was forced out.

“At your request I am submitting my resignation,” Sessions began.

Sessions continued, “We prosecuted the largest number of violent offenders and firearm defenders in our country’s history. We took on transnational gangs that are bringing violence and death across our borders and protected national security.”

“I have been honored to serve as Attorney General and have worked to implement the law enforcement agenda based on the rule of law that formed a central part of your campaign for the Presidency,” he closed.  Read it here

  1. Have to say I was an apologist for Sessions…’Oh it’s a coming’….and I was WRONG.

    Paging Rudy G. He knows how to handle gangsters.

    Battle On.


  2. so?

    what exactly does “We prosecuted the largest number of ….firearm defenders in our country’s history” mean?

  3. btw, Sessions dug his own grave when he recused himself from the Mueller Investigation … made me always doubt him as a plant (think – sacrificial lamb) in the early stages of the Trump candidacy … total crap move … ‘team player’ my ass!

    … don’t let the door hit ya where the Good Lord split ya

  4. Sessions letter of resignation began as follows, “[Gone to Lunch]” followed by “zzZzzz” and “[Last Known Sighting: n/a]”

    Goodbye old boy, too bad you didn’t have what it took. Too bad you recused yourself and hid in your office for two years. Yep. Too flippin’ bad.

  5. Too bad Sessions hasn’t been in the Senate the last two years. The fact he has his limitations doesn’t mean he isn’t a good man. The Peter Principle in action.
