Barely have the results of the midterm elections sunk in than a new drama begins for Washington.

Some said they were concerned the Russian Federation investigation would not continue under the acting attorney general, who has openly expressed skepticism of the probe in the past.

That left cannabis policy observers scrambling to find out where the temporary replacement at the top of the Department of Justice, Sessions' Chief of Staff Matthew Whitaker, stands on marijuana. He has previously suggested drastically reducing the budget of Mueller's special counsel probe, in order to thwart Mueller's threat to the president's constitutional mandate.

The switch, announced on Trump's Twitter feed, provoked consternation across Washington, where politicians from both sides of the aisle have long warned that political interference in Mueller's work can not be tolerated.

Earlier, at a White House news conference, Trump said the Mueller investigation was not good for the United States.

But when will this year's Black Friday take place in the United Kingdom , and which retailers will be putting on special deals. Black Friday - the day after the US Thanksgiving holiday - traditionally marks the start of the holiday shopping season.

Whitaker, in a Justice Department statement released on Wednesday evening said, "I am committed to leading a fair department with the highest ethical standards, that upholds the rule of law, and seeks justice for all Americans". It's a job he knows well given that Whitaker has spent the past year as Sessions' chief of staff. Whitaker is poised to take over the Russian Federation investigation, a probe he has criticized in the past.

He also said the line of succession within the Justice Department does not include the chief of staff and the fact that someone in that position would be made acting attorney general is "very odd".

"Based on my experience with Matt", said John Richter, a former U.S. Attorney in Oklahoma and high-ranking Bush administration Justice Department official, "I think he will act consistently with the best traditions of the department and call things as he sees them".

The Mueller team is seeking information related to Roger Stone, a longtime Trump adviser who has been at the center of the Mueller probe in recent weeks.

Sessions took himself out of decision-making on the probe in March 2017 even after Trump dispatched the White House lawyer to persuade him not to do so, according to a person familiar with the matter.

While speaking to reporters on Wednesday, Conway explained President Trump is not planning to use the resignation as a way to shut down the Mueller probe.

"It is impossible to read Attorney General Sessions' firing as anything other than another blatant attempt by @realDonaldTrump to undermine and end Special Counsel Mueller's investigation", Ms Pelosi - a front-runner to become speaker of the House of Representatives following this week's mid-terms - tweeted. He wrote past year on CNN.com that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should limit the scope of Mueller's investigation to stop him from delving into Trump's finances.

Sessions, 71, has a long political history in Alabama.

"First of all, I know a couple of families that are going to be positively impacted by what has happened in the state Senate today", he said.

An ever-more exasperated Trump ordered him to give up the mic and Acosta refused, with Trump branding him an "enemy of the people" and a "rude, bad person".
