John Malcolm says no one was surprised that he resigned and it was a question of time.

Jeff Sessions and the president have had a rocky relationship ever since Sessions recused himself from the Mueller investigation.

"The biggest change is Matthew G. Whitaker does not need to recuse himself,” Malcolm said.

What can the active Attorney General, Whitaker, do with the Mueller investigation?

Malcolm explains that Whitaker can do pretty much anything with the investigation.

John Malcolm says there are a lot of names floating around to replace Jeff Sessions permanently.

Malcolm says Robert Mueller is not an "independent counsel."  A new AG could come in and shut down his investigation. 

"I'm sure the President has been thinking about this for quite some time."  If he nominates an outsider, "it might take a while to vet him"
