For the first time in nearly forty years of public service, Jeff Sessions is now “Citizen” Sessions.

The former U.S. Attorney General submitting his resignation letter Wednesday, after it was requested by President Trump.

Attorney General Jeff Sessions to end policy that let legal marijuana flourish

 

Sessions resignation was not unexpected, and the president, while refusing to comment directly about Session’s future in a news conference Wednesday morning, said that he was, “..pleased with most of my Cabinet.”

Apparently, Mr. Trump had already received Sessions letter before the meeting with the media.

In less than two years, Jeff Sessions, Mobilian, and former Alabama Senator, had gone from one of the earliest, significant supporters of Donald trump’s presidential campaign, to being named Attorney General of the United States, to being shown the door.

The tipping point: Session’s recusal, early in his appointment, of over-seeing the Mueller Russian tampering probe. Mr. Trump was furious, at one point asking why Sessions has even taken the job, just to recuse himself from the investigation.

For his part, Jeff Sessions rarely fired back at the persistent, personal sniping by the president, saying only that Mr. Trump often said what was on his mind, but that his(Session’s) job was to carry out the administration’s agenda, especially enforcing its hardline stance on immigration and crime. In the end, it wasn’t enough for him to keep his job.
