Former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker has left the U.S. Department of Justice, The Hill reports. A Justice Department spokesman told The Hill that Whitaker’s last day was Saturday but did not expand on the circumstances surrounding his departure or his plans after leaving. Whitaker served as the chief of staff for former Attorney General Jeff Sessions until November, when President Trump tapped him to lead the department temporarily following Sessions’s ouster.
