Protesters Across US Warn Trump Against Derailing Mueller Probe

Trump turns his post-election reckoning into an operatic performance of grievances and pugilism

McConnell told WVLK-TV on Thursday that he expected Mueller's investigation to proceed to completion uninterrupted, despite President Donald Trump's desire for it to conclude quickly. But, in another interview that year, Whitaker also said he felt there was a red line for the probe.

In addition to probing Russia's election meddling, Mueller is also examining whether members of President Donald Trump's campaign colluded with Moscow and whether Trump sought to obstruct justice after he learned of the investigation's existence previous year.

And he said the attorney general could kill the investigation by starving it of funding. "He's said repeatedly it's going to be allowed to finish".

The bipartisan Mueller legislation was approved by the Senate Judiciary Committee in April and was co-sponsored by Republican Sens.

Democrats, as the minority party in the Senate, might need some Republican support to have legal standing to sue Trump under the Appointments Clause, said Andrew Wright, who was a White House lawyer under former President Barack Obama. "They're making a big effort to suppress the vote for those likely to vote as a Democrat".

Former attorney general Jeff Sessions, an early supporter of President Trump, was forced out a day after this week's midterm elections.

One of the exceptions, Senator Susan Collins, said non-interference in the Mueller probe was "imperative".

Those concerns stem from comments made by Whitaker before he joined the Justice Department past year. Acting Attorney General Whitaker can take several steps to bolster public confidence.

"I don't think an attorney general can be appointed without the advice and consent of the Senate".

News of Mueller's team working up a final report is not entirely unexpected.

"I am concerned about comments that Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker has made regarding the Special Counsel and the parameters of his investigation", she said.

Vice President Mike Pence comes to give his farewell to Sessions, and Sessions confesses he is confused as to why he was sacked. But instead of announcing that Rosenstein would assume the position of Acting Attorney General, Trump turned to a passionate loyalist to take charge of overseeing an investigation Whitaker has publicly called a "witch hunt."

While some speculated the "46" in his Twitter handle MattWhitaker46 referred to a future run at president-Trump is the 45th US president-it ostensibly refers to his jersey number, 46, when he played with the Iowa Hawkeyes football team from 1989 to 1982. But I didn't know Matt Whitaker.

On Thursday, The Washington Post reported that Whitaker has no plans to recuse himself from overseeing the Russian Federation investigation, despite his history of making antagonistic remarks about the special counsel. "So I think a word that you could describe about how Democrats will go forward in this regard is we will be very strategic".

"I put kids in cages, I ruled against gays, what more did you guys want?" "There's no reason we shouldn't add this and avoid a constitutional crisis", Schumer said.

However, Mueller, who in the real world is investigating Russia's influence on the 2016 presidential election and the Trump campaign's alleged involvement, did show up to tell Sessions that he helped in more ways than he will ever know. He added that the committee will issue a subpoena to make him appear before the panel and answer questions about the Mueller probe "if necessary".

"I made a picture for your bye-bye", Moffat's Eric said, with his trademark childlike intellect.
