Jeff Sessions sent a letter of resignation to Donald Trump
"Donald Trump just crossed a red line, violating the independence of the investigation pursuing criminal charges in the Trump-Russia scandal and cover-up", organizers wrote on the site.
But the Justice Department told CBS News on Wednesday that Whitaker will now oversee the probe. Nadler and other Democrats on the committee suggested the shakeup appears to be an effort to alter oversight of special counsel Robert Mueller's probe in a way that favors the president.
Whitaker, a former US attorney from Iowa who twice ran unsuccessfully for statewide office and founded a law firm with other Republican Party activists, once opined about a scenario in which Trump could fire Sessions and then appoint an acting attorney general who could stifle the funding of Mueller's probe.
With Whitaker as Attorney General, protesters are anxious he serves the best interest of President Trump instead of the entire country.
Attorney General Jeff Sessions has resigned at the request of President Donald Trump, according to a letter delivered to the White House, after becoming a target of the president's open contempt for ceding control of the Russian Federation investigation.
In addition to Sessions' ouster, Democrats are also interested in looking into Mr. Trump's tax returns, and global business dealings.

Cross Counter , trained by Charlie Appleby and quoted at 10-1, gets in at a light weight but will be having only its eighth start. Yucatan , who finished 11th, pulled up lame in a near foreleg - a minor injury - but was also not in any further danger.
In July 2017, he said during an interview on CNN that he could envision a scenario under which a temporary attorney general doesn't fire Mueller but rather "just reduces his budget to so low that his investigations grinds to nearly a halt".
Sessions felt that Mueller's investigation had gone on too long, but also believed it was important that he stay in the attorney general job as a means of protecting the special counsel's work so that, when it was concluded, the public would have confidence it had not been manipulated, according to a person familiar with his thinking. He was a vocal critic of Mr Mueller, arguing in an op-ed for CNN a year ago that the probe should not go into the finances of Mr Trump and his family members.
But the relationship was irreparably damaged in March 2017 when Sessions, acknowledging previously undisclosed meetings with the Russian ambassador and citing his work as a campaign aide, recused himself from the Russia investigation.
The possibility that Sessions was sacked could open Whitaker's appointment to court challenge by a range of people, including Mueller, impacted by his actions. "Clearly, Attorney General Sessions doesn't have the confidence of the president". Eight guilty pleas have resulted so far, and one jury trial conviction.
In February 2016, Sessions became the first sitting senator to endorse Trump's presidential campaign, and in the months leading up to the election, he became one of the candidate's closest national security advisers.
