In his resignation letter, Sessions took one final jab at the president, writing: "Most importantly, in my time as Attorney General we have restored and upheld the rule of law-a glorious tradition that each of us has a responsibility to safeguard".
What he used to do: Barr served as Attorney General under President George H.W. Bush for two years, after previously working in both the Department of Justice's Office of Legal Counsel and as Deputy Attorney General. He is now a lawyer at Kirkland & Ellis and does work advising corporations on government enforcement and regulatory actions.
Barr has worked in the private sector since serving as attorney general from 1991 to 1993, retiring from Verizon Communications (VZ.N) in 2008.
Barr served as Mueller's boss when he was attorney general in the early 1990s and Mueller led the criminal division at the Justice Department. "Those are the best attorneys general", said Democratic Sen.
He also defendedTrump's firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey in an op-ed, and has said special counsel Robert Mueller's team lacks balance.
Barr not only said that an investigation of this would be above-board, he claimed it was necessary in the interest of justice.

Mr Barr holds degrees in government and Chinese studies from Columbia University.

Barr, a Columbia University graduate, worked at the Central Intelligence Agency while attending the George Washington University Law School at night.
