update from california. now at the white house president donald trump has started being his cabinets so trump fired attorney general dr jeff sessions the announcement comes just a day off to his republican party and lost control of the house of representatives in this week's midterm elections although it increased its majority in the senate can really help it has more on a contentious day at the white house worried i said nothing that's enough it was supposed to be a news conference about the outcome of the midterm election sit down but it quickly turned into a testy exchange with reporters which included questions about the future of president donald trump's cabinet and the fate of his a battled attorney general jeff sessions and i'm very happy with most of my cabinet will look into that different people for different positions shortly after the president tweeted that his attorney general was out sessions writing in
7:04 pm
a letter to the president at your request i am submitting my resignation trumpets muse publicly about getting rid of sessions ever since the attorney general recused himself from the investigation into alleged ties between the truck campaign and the kremlin during the twenty sixteen presidential campaign sessions is replaced by matthew whitaker who will serve as acting attorney general whitaker is viewed as a trump loyalist and penned an op ed last year arguing the moeller probe was going too far he is now officially overseeing that same investigation or any attorney general whether this one or another one. should not be able to interfere with the mole or investigation in any way they should not be able to end it they should not be able to limit it right one of you know that i mean on monday trump said he wanted to take a softer tone but his post mid term news conference was his longest and arguably most contentious his press duration at times boiled over as he railed yet again at
7:05 pm
the media after he was asked repeatedly about the muller probe and should be ashamed of itself having you working for them you are a rude terrible person and i may actually have a question for you at once well a white house aide tried to take the microphone of a reporter another reporter asked about concerns over the rise of white nationalism that such a racist question the sessions firing in the fall of from the u.s. midterms comes as donald trump prepares to head to paris where he'll attend an event along with russian president vladimir putin on wednesday trying once again declined to directly criticize putin for his twenty fourteen addicks ation of crimea instead blaming it on former president barack obama can really help that al-jazeera the white house so mr sessions has been replaced as her hearing with a new acting attorney general that's forty nine year old matthew would occur he was
7:06 pm
appointed the u.s. attorney for iowa in two thousand and four by president george w. bush in that role he prosecuted white collar and drug trafficking crimes he held out office until two thousand and nine what a qur'an for the united states senate and twenty fourteen but lost the party's nomination he then worked as a conservative legal commentator for c.n.n. before being hired as jeff sessions chief of staff in october of last year and let's make the robert gucci he's the editor of the trump presidency journalism and democracy he's also a professor at lancaster university that is where he's joining us from thanks for speaking to us on al jazeera so now that sessions is outs matthew would occur isn't what will he do with the miller probe is he going to shut it down is he going to arraign it in or is he simply going to do nothing. well i think it's hard at this point to shut down the probe by saying it's over no more questions were done but i think the administration has shown that it works quite well in
7:07 pm
distraction and confusion and not answering questions directly or even asking direct questions and so i think it's going to be a lot of shuffling moving things around speeding up the probe and setting maybe a deadline for it to be fully completed but coming down with just a complete shutdown is. probably not going to do well with him now that there are stronger voices in the house but certainly they don't want it to go on much longer or to go much deeper yet and speaking of the house now that the democrats have control of the house what's their first priority of business for them do you think will they move forward on certain investigations when it comes to trump and if so which ones. in the midterm election they were very clear that health care was one of their main policies but they also did hint at moving forward with some investigations into donald trump's finances
7:08 pm
a potential affairs with russia surrounding the two thousand and sixteen election which is what that probe is looking into among other things. they certainly have also said something about maybe impeachment that's much that's much more difficult to do the question here is could the democrats use any wins that they got in this last election to set a foundation for a successful twenty twenty campaign against child bringing up issues of impeachment at this point and even investigations into him may not be getting some of those swing voters back on their side and what about when it comes to sort of for the benefit of our international audience here what impact has the democrats control the house likely to have on foreign policy or defense policy. well i think the democrats are going to try and hold to a notion of a global community supporting our allies in nato and supporting other initiatives
7:09 pm
that donald trump and others have been moving out of but again that's that's going to be hard for them to do and it's going to be behind the doors sort of negotiation about what international collaboration's are sceptical to republicans and to into trump in trying to bridge some of the divides that have created been created internationally but again doing so is going to raise. the terror against. an idea that's not america first that is the main objective of his administration and of his supporters writes a robber who she could to get your thoughts thanks for joining us on al-jazeera. on to more ahead on the news hour including the christian woman acquitted of blasphemy charges in pakistan is freed from prison case sparked widespread protests more fighting reported around the yemeni city of data as the international community
