In July 2017, before joining the Justice Department, Whitaker said during an interview on CNN that he could envision a scenario in which an acting attorney general doesn't fire Mueller but "just reduces his budget to so low that his investigations grind to nearly a halt".

Responding to reports that Mueller may have been looking into financial records of the Trump Organization, he has said doing that would go "beyond the scope of the appointment of the special counsel". Whitaker has been publicly critical of the investigation in the past. She said she called on people to contact legislators and form a public outcry about Sessions' resignation that will have to be addressed. "And that is a problem for all of us".
In the president's orbit, there remains some concern about his eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., though there are no outward indications that charges are imminent, according to a Republican close to the White House not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations.
Gorton added that the protest was a success, even though political activists are probably run ragged from Tuesday's elections.
