Democrats and Republicans had very different takes Wednesday following the sudden resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. The former U.S. Senator from Alabama was an early supporter of President Trump and as Attorney General, Sessions worked to carry out the President's policies on issues like immigration and crime.

But they did not see eye to eye on the ongoing investigation into whether the Trump campaign inappropriately coordinated with Russia in the 2016 election cycle. Yesterday, Sessions sent a letter to the White House saying quote, "at your request, I am submitting my resignation."

Afterward, President Trump announced that Matthew Whitaker, the former Attorney General's Chief of Staff would replace Sessions. Because Whitaker has criticized the Russia investigation, Congressional Democrats called for him to recuse himself, to pull back from involvement in the investigation as Sessions had done.

Meanwhile the top Republican on the Senate Judiciary Committee said the Justice Department was in good hands with Whitaker in charge.

周三,美国司法部长杰夫·塞申斯突然辞职,民主党和共和党对这件事的态度截然不同。前美国巴拉马州参议员塞申斯是最先支持特朗普总统的共和党人,作为司法部长,塞申斯负责执行总统在移民和犯罪等问题上的政策。

但是,二人在“特朗普竞选团队是否在2016年总统大选期间与俄罗斯不当协作”这一正在进行的调查上产生了分歧。昨天,塞申斯向白宫递交辞职信,信中写道:“应你的要求,我提交辞呈。”

之后,特朗普总统宣布塞申斯的办公室主任马修·惠特克将代理司法部长职务。由于惠特克曾批评“通俄门”调查,国会民主党人要求他避嫌,像塞申斯那样退出“通俄门”调查。

同时,参议院司法委员会的首席共和党议员表示,司法部在惠特克的管理下运转良好。
