  • CBS News: Chris Christie Being Considered To Replace Jeff Sessions As Attorney General

White House adviser Kellyanne Conway said on ABC's This Week that Trump hasn't asked the acting AG to do so, and she doubts Trump would ask Whitaker not to interfere in the probe because that would just prolong it. She wouldn't answer a question about whether Democrats will seek Trump's tax filings, but said committee requests for documents and hearings won't be "scattershot".

"Republicans captured at least four Senate seats held by Democrat incumbents and these are tremendously talented hardworking people that did this: Indiana, North Dakota, Florida, Missouri".

Just days after President Donald Trump appointed Jeff Sessions's Chief of Staff Matthew Whitaker to take over Sessions's role as attorney general, Whitaker has changed his Twitter account to private status.

The letter, sent Thursday to Whitaker, also said Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein has "ably supervised the Special Counsel's investigation from its outset".

Whitaker, on the other hand, has no intention of recusing himself, according to people close to him. In a talk radio interview, he maintained there was no evidence of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation. He also tweeted an ex-prosecutor's opinion piece that described a "Mueller lynch mob", which he said was "worth a read".

There have also been reports about past comments questioning the power and reach of the federal judiciary, and about his ties to an invention-promotion company that was accused of misleading investors.

The email shows that the criminal investigation involved the FBI's Miami field office. "The evidence is weak", Whitacker said in June of 2017.

The Washington Post writer and frequent critic of Saudi leadership returned to the building October 2 and was killed. Mr Khashoggi, a Saudi national working for the USA press, was a well-known critic of his home country's rulers.

Fourth, and most important, Whitaker has to accept the responsibility to defend the Department of Justice and its interests, rather than undermine them.

Prior to working at the Justice Department, Mr Whitaker made multiple negative comments about Mr Mueller's investigation and its scope.

Whitaker himself meanwhile offered little clue about his intentions in a bland statement to reporters thanking Trump for his appointment, praising his former boss as a "dedicated public servant" and adding he would work to leading a department that conformed to the "highest ethical standards". Some lawyers say it is illegal because he has not been confirmed by the Senate.

Mueller-a distinguished public servant who by all accounts is a Republican-and his team have achieved significant results in an investigation of deep importance to USA national security, including guilty pleas in which former high-ranking officials of the Trump campaign have voluntarily and openly admitted criminal conduct.

"Matthew G Whitaker is a highly respected former United States sttorney from Iowa", the president tweeted. They were not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations and spoke on condition of anonymity. "The matter of Whitaker is controversial and subject to dispute, but I think Rosenstein's recusal is not a matter of dispute". And The Daily Beast has reported the new acting attorney general made the rounds in right-wing media over the past two years claiming there was "no collusion" between the Trump campaign and Russian interests.

"It's not going to come up because it isn't necessary", the Kentucky Republican told reporters.
