"To have led a Department like this goes beyond anything I ever would have thought possible", he wrote.
Whitaker, a former U.S. attorney for the Southern District of Iowa, had served as Sessions's chief-of-staff since September 2017.
Sessions applauded department employees for achieving goals in reducing violent crime, homicides, opioid prescriptions and overdose deaths.
Mr Sessions' chief of staff Matthew Whitaker - who has been appointed the acting Attorney-General - will now oversee the probe, taking over from deputy Attorney-General Rod Rosenstein, who held the responsibility since the recusal.

US Representative Earl Blumenauer, of OR, called the move a "major step forward for marijuana reform", also noting that US Representative Pete Sessions, of Texas, who has obstructed votes on marijuana-related legislation as chair of the House Rules Committee, was defeated in Tuesday's midterm elections. That investigation is now being lead by former FBI director Robert Mueller, who was appointed by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein and has overseen the probe's work.
Trump has long expressed frustration with Sessions over his recusal from the Justice Department's Russian Federation investigation.
He is a longtime friend of Trump and endorsed him after dropping out of the 2016 presidential campaign.
If he has found solid evidence, Mueller is not expected to indict the president, given the unsettled state of law on that course of action.
Trump has said for months that he wished to replace Sessions, but lawmakers and administration officials believed that firing the attorney-general before the midterm elections would have had negative consequences for Republicans in tight races.
