Replacing Sessions with Trump sycophant is a last-ditch effort to obstruct the Russia investigation and evade accountability

November 7, 2018 (NASHVILLE, Tenn.) — After President Trump fired Jeff Sessions and named Matthew Whitaker as Acting Attorney General, Tennessee Democratic Party Chair Mary Mancini released the following statement:

“Forcing out one Attorney General and handpicking another who is clearly and openly committed to protecting this corrupt president at all costs is a dangerous abuse of power. Justice is closing in on Donald Trump and his family and now that Democrats have subpoena power, this is a last-ditch effort to sabotage the Russia investigation and save himself. The American people are paying attention, and Donald Trump will be held accountable for any attempts to circumvent the authority of the special counsel’s critical investigation.”
