Congressional Democrats on Thursday demanded emergency hearings in the U.S. House of Representatives to investigate President Donald Trump's ouster of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, calling the move an effort to undermine a federal probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 U.S. election.
Whitaker was tapped by the White House to serve as Sessions' chief of staff in September 2017, with sources describing then-White House counsel Don McGahn as the person behind the hiring.
On Friday morning Trump also insisted both that he "didn't know" Whitaker, a former United States attorney and Republican candidate in Iowa, and that he was "very highly thought of".
During an interview with CNN, House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-CA) said, "I don't see it's a constitutional crisis just yet". Among them was U.S. Sen. "He's the acting attorney general". He said there was no evidence of collusion.
He also said on CNN previous year that he could see a scenario in which Sessions' replacement doesn't fire Mueller but "just reduces his budget to so low that his investigation grinds to nearly a halt".
For months, Mueller has been seeking to question Trump as part of his investigation, which is also examining whether the president has sought to obstruct the probe.
McConnell didn't weigh in on whether Whitaker should recuse himself from the Mueller probe.

Top Pakistan religious scholar Moulana Samiul Haq assasinated in Rawalpindi
No individual or group has so far claimed responsibility behind the assassination of Maulana Samiul Haq. His seminary is in the Akora Khattak in the Khyber-Pakhtunkhwa province, which borders Afghanistan.
Protesters converged in cities nationwide to call for the protection of special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and President Donald Trump's campaign.
Critics worry Whitaker may be unlikely or unwilling to defend the investigation, given his history of partisanship and loyalty to Trump.
The challenge to Mueller's authority was being brought by Andrew Miller, an associate of President Donald Trump's long-time political adviser, Roger Stone. "And it's very hard to tell", the acting AG replied, arguing that Mueller's team continues to leak information on the investigation to make them seem "more productive and on top of things".
"People ... across this country gathered today to say ..."
Holding signs and banners with statements like "Protect Mueller Investigation" and "Protect Democracy From Our President!" the crowd chanted "no one is above the law" and "ho-ho, hey-hey, Robert Mueller's got to stay". Whitaker has been at the White House dozens of times, including in meetings with Trump, and the two have spoken by phone on several occasions, including on the day that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein was expected to be fired.
West Wing sources said they are "worried" about Trump Jr as they fear Mueller will be able to snare him on perjury.
