Former Acting United States Attorney General


Whitaker served as acting United States Attorney General from November 2018 to February 2019 following the resignation of Jeff Sessions, whom Whitaker had previously served as Chief of Staff.  As Acting Attorney General, Whitaker directly supervised Robert Mueller's Special Counsel investigation, which he had previously criticised as 'political', and from which Sessions had recused himself.  He also implemented the bipartisan First Step Act to reform the federal prison system, and has now returned to private practice
