The demonstrations were launched nationwide in response to Attorney General Jeff Sessions' resignation at the request of President Donald Trump, who replaced him with Sessions' chief of staff Matt Whitaker, who has a history of being critical of the investigation.

Sources close to the matter told CBS News on Thursday that Christie, a one-time presidential candidate, is part of a list that includes former New York City Mayor Rudy Giuliani, outgoing Florida Attorney General Pam Bondi, and former Attorney General William Barr, who served under President George H.W. Bush, CBS reported.

In theory, Whitaker could order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation or end it altogether.

In July 2017, before joining the Justice Department, Whitaker said during an interview on CNN that he could envision a scenario in which an acting attorney general doesn't fire Mueller but "just reduces his budget to so low that his investigations grind to nearly a halt".

People all over the country subscribed to an email list that would be activated if Trump appeared to be interfering with the investigation into his campaign.
