Whitaker had reportedly spoken often about the Mueller probe and indicated where he stood on the ongoing investigation which he now oversees. During a discussion on CNN last year, he even speculated were Sessions ever replaced, his replacement might reduce Mueller's budget.

"So I could see a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced with a recess appointment, and that attorney general doesn’t fire Bob Mueller, but he just reduces his budget to so low that his investigation grinds to almost a halt," he said in June of 2017.
