In his resignation letter, obtained by several media outlets and posted to Twitter, Mr Sessions makes it clear he was quitting at the president's request.
Whitaker is expected to take charge of the the Russian Federation investigation and special counsel Robert Mueller from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.
Sessions endured most of the name-calling in silence, though he did issue two public statements defending the department, including one in which he said he would serve "with integrity and honor" for as long as he was in the job.

From there, Trump began steadily hammering Sessions on Twitter. Trump has always been displeased with his decision to recuse himself from the Justice Department's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The president said Sessions' chief of staff, Matt Whitaker, would replace him for now, with a permanent replacement coming later.
After enjoying Sessions' early support on the campaign trail, Trump turned against his AG in March 2017 after he recused himself from a probe into Russia's interference in the 2016 election. Sessions had recused himself from any involvement in the Mueller investigation; his replacement will not have the same obligation. It had been determined that Sessions had multiple meetings with the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey Kislyak, without disclosing it to the government before taking the attorney general position.
Whitaker added in the piece that "it is time for [Rod] Rosenstein...to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation".
Mr Rosenstein in turn appointed Mr Mueller, a former Director of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.
