Jeff Sessions resigns as Attorney General

WASHINGTON, D.C. - Jeff Sessions is out as U.S. Attorney General. Multiple sources are reporting that the White House received the former Alabama U.S. Senator's letter of resignation Nov. 7, Wednesday afternoon. 

The resignation followed hours after the President reportedly requested Sessions to step-down earlier in the day. 

Sessions has been a target of criticism for President Trump since recusing himself from the Russia investigation in March. 

Sessions has served as attorney general since February 2017.

Trump announced on Twitter that Matthew Whitaker, the Chief of Staff to the Attorney General's Office will serve as the acting attorney general.
