Nov 8, 2018

PORTLAND, Maine - Three members of Maine's congressional delegation are concerned about the forced resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

Democratic Rep. Chellie Pingree, Republican Sen. Susan Collins and independent Sen. Angus King on Wednesday warned the Trump administration not to interfere with Robert Mueller's investigation into potential coordination between the president's Republican campaign and Russia.

Trump announced in a tweet that he was naming Sessions' chief of staff Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general. Whitaker has criticized Mueller's investigation.
