Donald Trump's political advisor Roger Stone is just the latest of the president's associates to be indicted by Mueller as part of the ongoing investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 United States election. Could this be the final straw?
As acting attorney general, Whitaker supplants Rosenstein as Mueller’s immediate supervisor (unless, like Sessions, he must also recuse from the matter). As such, he inherits the authority, among other things, to control the scope of Mueller’s investigation.
The trial of President Trump's former aide continues, with a high profile former colleague testifying against him in court. Rick Dates has admitting in court to committing crimes alongside Robert Mueller, which include tax fraud and bank fraud. President Trump calls the investigation "a witch hunt".
