With New Justice Official, Fate of Russia Probe in Question

Congressional Democrats, concerned about protecting Mueller, called on Whitaker to recuse himself from overseeing the investigation in its final but potentially explosive stages.

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. "There's no collusion", Trump said on Wednesday. It's a job he knows well given that Whitaker has spent the past year as Sessions' chief of staff.

There has also been a question mark over Mr Rosenstein's future since it was alleged that he had discussed invoking a constitutional clause to oust President Trump.

Warner criticized Trump for not appointing a bureaucrat who previously got senatorial confirmation - naming Rosenstein and Solicitor General Noel Francisco.

"The chances of Mueller being interfered with goes up dramatically" with Whitaker's appointment, he said.

Authorities in Southern California say a gunman killed 12 people late Wednesday during an attack at a bar and dance club. A police officer, described as a sheriff's sergeant, and the gunman are among the 13 confirmed to have died.

But his departure was anticipated since early this year, after he endured withering and repeated criticism from the president over the legally troubled ban on Muslim travellers Trump sought when he came into office, and over the Mueller probe.

Andy McCarthy of National Review also has high regard for Matt Whitaker, describing him as "well credentialed and an excellent choice to assume the duties of attorney general". The moment the Democrats clinched the required 23 seats to retake the lower chamber; they were readying the various probes into this presidency-and the left wing harassment of this administration is about to begin.

After recusing himself from the Russian Federation probe, the staunchly conservative Sessions spent his time ramping up efforts to combat violent gangs, drug use and illegal immigration - all key components of Trump's law-and-order agenda.

Gonzales resigned as attorney general under a cloud of controversy and amid accusations that the Justice Department has been used for political purposes.

He bolstered the agenda of Trump's evangelical supporters with new rules letting employers opt out of providing health insurance that covers birth control and paving the way for religious businesses and employees to discriminate based on their closely held beliefs.
