ROBERTS: “This is big. It’s about to pop in a very big way. Jeff Sessions, the Attorney General of the United States, has submitted his letter of resignation. And Matt Whitaker, who is the current chief of staff to Jeff Sessions, is going to be the acting attorney general. We understand the President asked for Sessions’ resignation this morning before he came out for that press conference. The letter from Jeff Sessions starts out saying, 'In response to your request from this morning, I hereby submit by resignation.' We have not confirmed yet whether or not Matt Whitaker, who was the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa and was a candidate for Senate in Iowa in 2014, will take over the Mueller investigation or not. But that is something that we have heard. The President talked about in the past Whitaker may be taking over from was it Rosenstein or taking over in some capacity. We don’t know exactly where the Russia investigation is going to fall, if it’s going to stay with the Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein or if Whitaker will take it over.”
