Mueller's team has netted convictions and guilty pleas from several Trump campaign staff members and advisers.
"Mueller was not Senate confirmed", the president fumed. The Trump administration is going to be investigated over Russian Federation, taxes, voter ID laws, any aspect of this White House the Left hates was going to be put under the microscope now that Democrats have retaken the House. They were not authorized to speak publicly about private conversations and spoke on condition of anonymity.
Mueller kept a low profile for the past month as voters were mulling their choices for this week's elections.
Gonzales said he was unsure of what could be done if Whitaker moved to stop the Mueller investigation.
Trump has repeatedly called the investigation a "witch hunt".

Washington D.C., Nov 10: Senator Democrats are considering legal action against the United States President Donald Trump's decision of appointing Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general.
He wrote past year on CNN.com that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein should limit the scope of Mueller's investigation to stop him from delving into Trump's finances.
Of the scrutiny Whitaker is facing, Trump said: "It's a shame that no matter who I put in they go after". Ryan, who was told to "sit down" by the president earlier this week, was once again attacked by the president for supposedly not showing him proper respect. He has been on the record saying that the scope is too broad, that Mueller should not be investigating associates of Trump. An already-politicized probe just got that much more political. It has been used as a weapon in the drive by the Democrats and sections of the military/intelligence establishment to force Trump to adopt a more aggressive posture against Moscow and in the war for regime-change in Syria.
Charles Larson, a former chairman of the Iowa Republican Party, said Whitaker has briefed Trump and done "an impressive job". That view was openly on display in his raucous White House televised press conference Thursday.
Democratic Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer immediately called on Whitaker to recuse himself from the probe as his predecessor had, "given his previous comments advocating defunding and imposing limitations" on it.
"I'm not doing anything", he said. Court papers show Trump's conduct and that of top executives at the Trump Organization, some of whom have received immunity, have been scrutinized. It is not clear if an in-person interview with the president will happen. McConnell said he expects Whitaker to be "a very interim" appointee.
Meanwhile, President Donald Trump's legal team has begun working with the president to craft responses to questions from Mueller's team as part of their investigation, sources close to Trump told ABC. Congressional Democrats have called on him to recuse himself from overseeing the investigation. And not everyone is convinced he needs to.
"I recognize that the president is never going to sign such a bill, but I think Senate debate and passage of the bill would send a very strong message to the president", she said.
Walter Shaub, who was director of the U.S. Office of Government Ethics for four years before resigning in July 2017, said the friendship between Whitaker and Clovis should disqualify Whitaker from supervising the Mueller investigation.
