US: blasted by Trump over Russia probe, Sessions fired as AG
US Attorney General Jeff Sessions was fired on Wednesday after receiving unrelenting criticism from US President Donald Trump for recusing himself from an investigation into Russia's role in the 2016 presidential race.


In a step that could have implications for the investigation led by Special Counsel Robert Mueller, Trump replaced Sessions with Matthew Whitaker, who will be acting attorney general. He had been Sessions' chief of staff.
