The Vacancy Reform Act bars Trump’s installation of the unconfirmed Matt Whitaker to act as attorney general to control Robert Mueller unless Sessions truly “resigned” rather than being fired.

In designating an Acting AG, the president has skipped over the Deputy AG (and other Senate-confirmed officials at DOJ) in favor of an unqualified loyalist who has not been confirmed by the Senate. This dangerous and likely unconstitutional act should not stand.#WhitakerMustGo— Bill Kristol (@BillKristol) November 9, 2018
