Whitaker was campaign chairman for Mueller witness

US Attorney General Jeff Sessions, said he was resigning at the request of US President Donald Trump on Nov 7 2018

Bipartisan bills to protect Mueller from politically motivated removal have been introduced in the House and Senate.

Good cause is a hard thing to show, especially since Mueller's actions were approved by the deputy attorney general, said Jens Ohlin, a professor of criminal law at Cornell Law School.

"It is imperative that the Administration not impede the Mueller investigation", she tweeted.

In an effort to raise Hell about the forced resignation of Jeff Sessions and what it might mean for the Mueller investigation, Boston is joining nationwide protests Thursday with a 5 p.m. rally on Boston Common.

Both Whitaker and Clovis are rooted in Iowa politics, and both ran for the 2014 Republican Senate nomination.

"The president's actions have plunged the country into peril", the Democrats added.

With Whitaker as Attorney General, protesters are anxious he serves the best interest of President Trump instead of the entire country. "Clearly, Attorney General Sessions doesn't have the confidence of the president".

Jeff Sessions imminent departure as attorney general was expected, as he had been repeatedly criticized by Trump for recusing himself from the investigation of potential collusion between the president's campaign and Russian Federation. In addition to Trump Jr, targets could include former campaign consultant Roger Stone. He had frequently publicly castigated Sessions for recusing himself previous year from the case. "I'm not recused, you're not recused", Conway told reporters. Chuck Schumer, said he should recuse himself because of his comments on the probe. Rep.

The 56-year-old was recently extradited to NY from Florida, where he was arrested October 26 at an auto parts store. Prosecutors have said Sayoc is likely to face additional charges and penalties from their ongoing investigation.

Crucially, Mueller has, by offering reduced charges, gained cooperation from people who once worked close to Trump: Manafort, Cohen, former national security advisor Michael Flynn and former deputy campaign chairman Rick Gates.

Mueller's grand jury has heard testimony for months about Trump confidant Roger Stone and what advance knowledge he may have had about Russian hacking of Democratic emails.

Trump's running commentary criticizing Sessions and the Justice Department injected more turmoil into an agency that was still reeling from the president's firing of FBI Director James Comey in May 2017.

Since he accepted his position in 2017, Sessions and President Trump have gone from allies to opponents, with Trump growing increasingly critical of Sessions' work as head of the Department of Justice.

Sessions endured most of the name-calling in silence, though he did issue two public statements defending the department, including one in which he said he would serve "with integrity and honor" for as long as he was in the job.

He warned that there would be consequences if Mr Trump is determined to have fired Mr Sessions in order to subvert the rule of law and obstruct justice.
