The house cleaning has begin. Donald Trump has fired his Attorney General, Jeff Sessions.  From The New York Times:

“President Trump forced out Attorney General Jeff Sessions on Wednesday, ending a partnership that soured almost from the start of the administration and degenerated into one of the most acrimonious public standoffs between a commander in chief and a senior cabinet member in modern American history.”

Senator minority leader Chuck Schumer found out about Sessions during a news conference. This was his reaction.

Trump didn’t waste any time moving this crisis along either. He quick announced a Trump loyalist would be acting Attorney General.

So what does that mean for the Mueller investigation?  Is Rod Rosenstein no longer in charge of it?  It appears that would now be under the purview of Matthew Whitaker.

Witness this op-ed piece written by Whitaker that said the Mueller investigation had gone too far.
