Don't touch Russian Federation investigation, Mitt Romney tells Trump

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions Resigns

Mr Mueller is investigating alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation, resulting in a series of criminal charges against several Trump associates. Shortly after, the White House took the extremely rare measure of revoking Acosta's press pass. And the department is expected to receive a confidential report of Mueller's findings, though it's unclear how much will be public.

Whitaker, in a Justice Department statement released on Wednesday evening said, "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".

Critics worry Whitaker may be unlikely or unwilling to defend the investigation, given his history of partisanship and loyalty to Trump.

Nobody Is Above The Law said it had been preparing "rapid response" protests, just in case of a major development in the investigation.

In 2017, he wrote an op-ed for CNN in which he concluded "Mueller has come up to a red line in the Russian Federation 2016 election-meddling investigation that he is dangerously close to crossing".

'Never before has a President designated an acting attorney general who had not previously been serving in a Senate-confirmed position, ' the group wrote in a letter to the Justice Department. However, it would be an immediate priority for Democratic investigations when they officially take control of the House in January.

He managed a Senate campaign for Sam Clovis in Iowa, who later was nominated to join the Trump administration, ran Iowa for Trump, and was interviewed by Mueller's investigators.

He found satisfaction in being able to reverse Obama-era policies that conservatives say flouted the will of Congress, encouraging prosecutors to pursue the most serious charges they could and promoting more aggressive enforcement of federal marijuana law.

He also said there was no real evidence to support allegations Trump obstructed justice, and in an opinion article for The Hill newspaper he said Trump made the "right decision" by firing FBI Director James Comey in 2017. Last month, he claimed Trump jokingly asked if he wanted it.

The next month, Whitaker wrote an op-ed posted on CNN's website in which he argued that Mueller's investigation appeared to be going too far and may constitute a "witch hunt", echoing one of Trump's favorite descriptions to criticize and discredit the probe.

Sessions, who likely suspected his ouster was imminent, was spotted by reporters giving some of his grandchildren a tour of the White House over the weekend.
