IMO, the fact that Trump hasn’t ditched his new mook (or, to be precise, had someone ditch Whitaker for him) would seem to indicate that the Oval Office Occupant is running out of half-decent alternatives.

If Whitaker doesn't recuse himself and has any involvement in Mueller's probe, we will expose it, including whether he made any commitments to Trump, is serving as a back channel, or interfering in the probe.
He will be held accountable. There must be no ambiguity about that. pic.twitter.com/ZpNmOynWLi

Chris Christie on ABC, on Whitaker: "I think he's really there to land the Mueller investigation, to get it done. … What the president's attempting to do here is to have someone who's already been involved, to get the Mueller investigation to its completion."
