"Trump's actions are being compared with those of U.S. President Richard Nixon in one of the most controversial episodes of the Watergate scandal, the Saturday Night Massacre", said organizers. He has also tweeted an ex-prosecutor's opinion piece that described a "Mueller lynch mob", which he said was "worth a read". "The evidence is weak", Whitacker said in June of 2017.
Justice Department officials declined to comment on Whitaker's handling of the FTC subpoena. "Anything that is outside of Russian coordination or the 2016 campaign would be outside of the scope of that investigation".
Protestors are marching to raise the alarm about the "existential threat" Whitaker poses to Mueller's investigation and that "nobody is above the law".

"The Nobody Is Above the Law network demands that Whitaker immediately commit not to assume supervision of the investigation", Galland said. And he was critical of Sessions' recusal from the Russian Federation probe, which put Rosenstein in charge of it. Trump said Sessions' recusal was "extremely unfair" and he wouldn't have given Sessions the job if he had known Sessions would recuse himself.

He also told the network that he could envision a scenario where Sessions is replaced with an attorney general who "reduces [Mueller's] budget so low that his investigation grinds to nearly a halt".
CNNreported that Mr Mueller's team has begun writing its final report and there are signs the special counsel's team are looking into Roger Stone, a political consultant and ally of Mr Trump.
He said he was speaking only for himself and he hoped Republicans might join as plaintiffs if a lawsuit goes forward. "That also happens to be my view".
