Trump took only hours to replace Sessions with Matthew Whitaker, who now also replaces DAG Rosenstein as "Mueller's boss" & will oversee Mueller's probe.— The Loyal Opposition 🇺🇸 (@TheLoyalO) November 7, 2018
Whitaker is publicly hostile to Mueller's probe.
This is a worst-case scenario.
Be ready to protest soon.#ProtectMueller https://t.co/xzur3YN9eU

Trump has put a lackey in charge of the Mueller investigation.
The investigation is in danger.
