"I don't know Matt Whitaker". "It's not ok for someone to break the law and be above the law". Whitaker was hired as a CNN legal commentator past year for several months, before leaving the role in September 2017 to head to the Justice Department as chief of staff to now-former Attorney GeneralJeff Sessions.
Whitaker has given no indication he believes he needs to step aside from ultimately overseeing Mueller's investigation, one person familiar with his thinking toldCNN Thursday.
"I think there are people who are hungry to show they are scared for their country", "It's one day after the election, we're all exhausted ... and I don't think the timing of the announcement from the (Trump) administration is an accident". Several hundred demonstrators gathered Thursday in New York's Times Square and chanted slogans including "Hands off Mueller" and "Nobody's above the law" before marching downtown.
The attendees held signs reading "Innocence need not fear", "No one is above the law" and "Protect the Mueller investigation".
Crowds also turned out at the White House and in Greensboro, North Carolina; Chattanooga, Tennessee; Las Vegas and many other places.

Majority Leader Mitch McConnell said Friday that legislation to shield special counsel Robert S. Mueller III from being fired is still not on the Senate agenda.

On Friday as he left for Paris, the president dismissed the argument that Whitaker's past comments might disqualify him from overseeing the special counsel. Whitaker accompanied the tweet with his own comment to his followers: "Worth a Read".
That set off immediate alarm bells: Whitaker has been overtly critical of the broad scope granted to Mueller's team to probe beyond allegations Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation in 2016, into other ties between Trump, his family and aides, and Russian Federation - an investigation the president calls a "witch hunt". He said there was no evidence of collusion.
