Trump's advisers worried about Mueller's next steps

Fears for Russia probe as Trump fires Jeff Sessions

Protesters nationwide have called for the protection of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into potential co-ordination between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's campaign.

Trump repeatedly emphasized that he did not know Whitaker, whom he had tapped on Wednesday to lead the Justice Department on a temporary basis after forcing Attorney General Jeff Sessions out of the job.

"The firing of Sessions is widely viewed as a possible attempt to obstruct the ongoing special counsel investigation being conducted by the U.S. Department of Justice and headed by former FBI director Robert Mueller", said the organizers in a release.

Democrats have slammed Whitaker's appointment to replace Sessions, arguing that Trump is trying to undermine Mueller and demanding that Whitaker recuse himself from supervising the Mueller investigation due to his writings and public comments attacking the investigation.

Conway was asked if President Donald Trump had instructed Whitaker to limit the Russian Federation investigation and said the "president hasn't instructed him to do anything" beyond serve as acting attorney general.

Illegal border crossers now ineligible for asylum, White House says
Similar caravans have gathered regularly over the years and have generally dwindled by the time they reach the southern border. The caravan has remained undeterred, and participants said they plan on applying for asylum at an official port of entry.

"Matt Whitaker worked for Jeff Sessions and he was always extremely highly thought of and he still is but I didn't know Matt Whitaker", Mr. Trump said.

Sessions had been an avid supporter from the beginning of the Trump campaign, but ran afoul of the President when he recused himself from the probe on Russia's interference after it was revealed that Sessions had had two meetings with the former ambassador from Russia, Sergey Kislyak.

He said none of those apply in this case, as Whitaker is not deputy attorney general, he did not receive Senate confirmation for his current role at the DOJ and the Senate is not in recess.

"I'm very anxious", said Nicole Lockett, waving an American flag.

Critics of the Mueller probe, including Whitaker, argue it has gone too far. The Senate's top Republican predicted a permanent replacement could be named soon for Whitaker, who is now overseeing the Trump-Russia probe.

In all likelihood, Whitaker will remain acting Attorney General until a new person can be confirmed to the post by the Senate, which likely won't come until February at the earliest.

Counselor to President Donald Trump Kellyanne Conway, is interviewed on television at the White House's North Lawn in Washington, Wednesday, Nov. 7, 2018.

On Friday, Trump said he had not spoken with Whitaker about Mueller's investigation, which until now has been overseen by Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. On CNN previous year, Whitaker envisioned Trump reducing Mueller's budget "so low that his investigation grinds to nearly a halt". And even if ethics advisers at the Justice Department suggested he step aside, Whitaker is not obligated to follow that advice, sources explained.

"A big complaint people have - Mueller was not Senate confirmed ... why didn't they get him confirmed?" the president wondered.

"Therefore, Whitaker can not serve as acting Attorney General ..."
