White House departures -- Sessions “resigns” as attorney general

November 7, 2018 -- U.S. President Donald Trump has fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions, the latest in 29 White House departures since Trump came to power in 2017.

Trump had criticised his top law official for months, mainly over his refusal to oversee Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation into alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia.

In a resignation letter, Sessions made clear the decision to go was not his own: “Dear Mr President, at your request I am submitting my resignation,” he wrote.

Sessions recused himself -- voluntarily removed himself from the Mueller probe -- after Democrats accused him of failing to disclose contacts with the Russian ambassador during his Senate confirmation hearing. The attorney general later said he had forgotten about those meetings, which happened during the Trump election campaign.
