Attorney General Jeff Sessions Resigns
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has resigned. Reports indicate that he issued his resignation to President Trump at the President's urging.

According to CNBC:

Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned Wednesday after more than a year of public criticism from his boss, President Donald Trump.


Trump's press secretary Sarah Sanders said the White House received a resignation letter from Sessions earlier Wednesday and Trump accepted it.

The 71-year-old Sessions departs after the president repeatedly hammered him about his decision last year to recuse himself from the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election and whether the Trump campaign colluded with the Kremlin.

Trump says that moment opened the door to special counsel Robert Mueller's probe, which the president has repeatedly called a "witch hunt."

It remains unclear who will replace Sessions. This story is breaking. Check back with TTN as updates become available.
