The two people close to Whitaker also said they strongly believe he would not approve any request from special counsel Robert S. Mueller III to subpoena the president.
American citizens in Vancouver are planning a protest Thursday following the firing by U.S. President Donald Trump of Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Some experts are raising questions about the legality of putting Whitaker in charge rather than Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who had been overseeing the Russian Federation probe.
Of the scrutiny Whitaker is facing, Trump said: "It's a shame that no matter who I put in they go after".
Several of Stone's associates have been subpoenaed by a grand jury in recent months, as part of Mueller's probe into whether Trump's campaign colluded with Russian Federation.
Schumer and other leading Democrats were joined in their call for an unhampered probe by Republican Mitt Romney, a former presidential candidate and frequent Trump critic who won a US Senate seat in Tuesday's midterm.

Whitaker has his supporters too, including a USA senator from Iowa, Joni Ernst. "In my role as a member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, I look forward to meeting with acting Attorney General Whitaker soon and have confidence he will do a professional job in this position". The president claimed on Twitter that the investigation into obstruction of justice was "an illegal scam" and declared in a July 29 Twitterpost and elsewhere, "There is no collusion!"
Trump has repeatedly criticized Sessions for that decision, and the Attorney General's dismissal has been expected for a long time.

In a cosigned letter, the attorneys general said that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe "must proceed free from interference". Look for Whitaker to reduce Mueller's operating budget, pull lawyers and investigators now working on Mueller's team back to DOJ, refuse to authorize grand jury subpoenas or indictments, and/or push Mueller to wrap up the probe as soon as possible.

But, she said, she's concerned that Sessions' departure may be a sign that Mueller's investigation will be blocked. Mueller has tended to make major announcements over the Russian Federation probe on Fridays.
MA will also be getting its first black congresswoman while Arizona and Tennessee stand to elect their first woman senators. Tlaib actually campaigned with Omar ahead of the latter's primary race earlier this year.
