"I look forward to working with President Trump to find a confirmable, worthy successor so that we can start a new chapter at the Department of Justice and deal with both the opportunities and challenges our nation faces", he said in a statement online.

Can Whitaker be forced to recuse himself?

"Essentially we need to shame him into acting in compliance with the law", she said.

Matthew played tight end on the 1991 Rose Bowl Team for the Iowa Hawkeyes, according to WHO-TV. "In fact, Mr Whitaker told CNN past year that a future attorney general could limit Mueller by reducing the budget so low that his investigations grinds to nearly a halt".

Sessions' decision to recuse himself in March 2017 was based on his involvement with the Trump campaign during the 2016 presidential election.

But amid that controversy, Sessions sent the farewell message to Justice Department employees touting their work and accomplishments together.

Mr Trump had made his unhappiness publicly known, griping that he would not have picked Mr Sessions for the post, had he known the Attorney-General would step aside to allow the "witch hunt" to go on. The recusal left the investigation in the hands of Rosenstein, who appointed Mueller two months later after Trump fired then-FBI Director James Comey.

Mr Trump has at various times belittled Mr Sessions as "beleaguered", "VERY weak", and "DISGRACEFUL".

The ouster of Sessions ended a partnership that soured nearly from the start of the administration and degenerated into one of the most acrimonious public standoffs between a commander-in-chief and a senior Cabinet member in modern USA history.

One reason Sessions endured months of taunting from Trump is that he believed he was protecting the integrity of the Justice Department and was trying to prevent the president from bringing in someone who would politicize it, according to a USA official who has worked with Sessions and frequently talked with him.

Sessions, who likely suspected his ouster was imminent, was spotted by reporters giving some of his grandchildren a tour of the White House over the weekend. He did not respond when asked why he was there.
