Whitaker was campaign chairman for Mueller witness

Late Show host Stephen Colbert discussed the Democrats taking the House on Tuesday stating the party can now

Both refused and resigned, before Solicitor General Robert Bork, third in command at the Department of Justice, agreed to fire Cox.

"When Trump complained about the Mueller investigation, Whitaker often smiled knowingly and nodded in assent, the official said".

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions was sacked by Donald Trump Wednesday after enduring more than a year of bitter criticism from the president over his decision to step aside from the Russian Federation investigation that has dogged the White House.

Casey tweeted Wednesday after news of Sessions' departure that Congress should take action to protect Mueller's investigation from interference.

In his comments Friday, he said he had not spoken with Whitaker about Mueller's investigation, which until now has been overseen by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein.

Trump asked for Jeff Sessions' resignation and then replaced him with Whitaker, his chief of staff. Whitaker has criticized Mueller's probe.

Trump had repeatedly criticized Sessions for recusing himself from any investigation into potential Russian meddling in the 2016 US presidential election. "People know that Trump is trying to shut down the investigation and they don't want that to happen".

Collins said in a statement Friday that she's concerned about comments made by Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, whom President Donald Trump appointed after he fired Jeff Sessions this week. The investigation, led by special counsel Robert Mueller, has already netted multiple indictments and guilty pleas.

Trump has repeatedly denied any collusion with Russian Federation, and describes Mueller's investigation as a "witch hunt".

The mayor said the Senate's right tilt Tuesday night could pose a threat to the investigation. "However, we do not believe increased Democratic oversight will prevent Whitaker or his successor from restricting Mueller's work". But, in another interview that year, Whitaker also said he felt there was a red line for the probe. "With the appointment of Whitaker I think there's a very good chance they'll try to stifle the investigation". He sent a department-wide note after his appointment in which he said, "As we move forward, I am committed to leading a fair Department with the highest ethical standards, that upholds the rule of law, and seeks justice for all Americans". A person familiar with the matter said he got on the White House's radar via conservative circles in Iowa, his TV appearances and his connections with the Federalist Society and other conservative groups.
