With the heat of the elections now over President Trump continues changing the White House staff.


https://twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1060256623439110146

Sessions told the president in a one-page letter that he was submitting his resignation "at your request."

From his twitter page President Trump:

"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. 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."

Some say that Lindsey Graham will be the next AG. Nikki Haley will take Lindsey's senate seat.

Mr. Sessions delivered his resignation letter to the White House at the request of the president and Mr. Trump tapped Matthew Whitaker, Mr. Sessions’s chief of staff, as acting attorney general. In that capacity, Mr. Whitaker assumes control of the Russia investigation, raising questions about the future of the inquiry led by the special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III.


SCENARIOS FOR MATTHEW WHITAKER

https://www.vox.com/2018/11/7/18072956/jeff-sessions-fired-mueller-trump-ru ssia-whitaker

Scenario No. 1: Whitaker as the hatchet man who ends the probe

Scenario No. 2: Whitaker lets Mueller continue, but reins him in

Scenario No. 3: Whitaker doesn’t actually interfere much

JS is indeed a bigot just like his former boss, the prez. However the one right thing he did was to recuse himself. He really had to. And that is what pissed Trump off more than anything. Nothing else from a legal standpoint matters to Trump. Trump sees the AG as his personal protector. If Trump is so innocent, then why does he need protection? What is he hiding?

Trump may not be hiding anything. He HATES being second-guessed/questioned/accountable & the Mueller investigation is questioning his actions. He wants it over.

JS acted appropriately in recusing himself. Whitaker should, too, given his public opinions re Mueller & the investigation. Rosenstein should be supervising.

Not that the new Senate will lift a finger against DJT.

Question - isn’t it a moot point if the Mueller investigation is shut down, since he farmed a significant piece to the State of NY? From my understanding, Mueller expected to be shut down, so he farmed out some of the financial crimes to NY so that they can pursue it themselves, with or without Mueller.

Mueller didn't farm anything out. His investigation is Russian involvement in the 2016 election. In the course of the investigation, he found evidence of financial improprieties that he referred to the FEDERAL district court in Manhattan. It's far more equipped to investigate nuanced financial crimes than he is.

Nothing Mueller has done & all of the indictments/pleas/agreements already in place can't be touched. However, without shutting the investigation down, Trump's latest AG - who hasn't been approved by Congress - can gut it by slashing its budget or not even delivering its final report to Congress.

NY State has launched independent investigations into various transactions of DJT, the Trump Organization, and parties who did business w/DJT. Cuomo's not a fan.

From COMMON DREAMS: "Trump thought that by waiting until after the polls closed on Election Day, our voices would be silent. He was wrong."

Progressive organizations have announced coordinated protests to take place in cities and communities nationwide on Thursday, November 8th at 5 PM (local time) in the wake of President Donald Trump's firing of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Right after Trump forced Sessions to resign, the White House announced that Matthew Whitaker—a DOJ official who has shown open hostility to the probe by Special Counsel Robert Mueller—would now serve as acting AG and be put in charge of the ongoing investigation.

"Trump just put someone who has openly trashed Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation in charge of it," Robert Weissman, president of Public Citizen, one of the advocacy groups behind the rapid-response demonstrations, explained in an emergency email Wednesday evening. "Trump thought that by waiting until after the polls closed on Election Day, our voices would be silent. He was wrong."

Anna Galland, executive director for MoveOn.org, said: "This is a red line crossed, an attack on rule of law."

According to organizers:

This Thursday at 5 p.m. local time, Americans will rally at locations all across the country. Join them.

Find a protest near you.

From the minute Trump was elected there were marches & rallies to unite the many diverse sectors of the USA. These represented many causes from womens' issues to immigration to shootings / gun control. These rallies served the purpose of uniting across causes with one leading common denominator of protest - Donald Trump (his words & actions).

Much of the strong success across the country in this week's taking back of the HOR was as a result of these protests & rallies. They will continue the year and a half leading into the next prez election and will result in Donald Trump being a one term president.

By the above responses its pretty clear the main concern or goal for liberals is to convict President Trump. Democrats should use their new found power to move the country forward and not waste time on other matters.

goob has forgotten every Trump campaign rally when they yell, "Lock her up". I never read where he said that was wrong in all the Crooked HC posts.

goob - Do you really want to find out facts about Trump's involvement with Russia, possible (probable) emolument violations, his potential campaign finance violations, etc., or do you just want to wear a red MAGA hat and cheer this guy on and give carte blanche?

One thing I am sure of is that the Democrats will give at least as much consideration to working with Trump and the Republicans as the Republicans gave to working with Obama.

They have a movement protesting to protect Mueller.

Those Occupy Wall Streeters are at it again. They are behind this 'movement'. The ultimate goal, bring down the President, start a civil war if necessary. We must not allow that.

Have you ever thought that the goal is and should be to protect Mueller from Trump doing a song and dance to get rid of him? Face it - Mueller represents a real threat to facts & truth about Trumpco that might take down Trump - all legal. Trump can't handle that. So Gina, it's not all cynical reasons that things are being done to try to protect Mueller. Let him do his job. If Trump is innocent like he tells us everyday, then the facts that Mueller has will support that; if not then too bad for Trump if he gets what he deserves for his actions.
