Beginning of End to Mueller Russian Investigation?

Today, Trump asked for and received the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and appointed Matthew Whitaker, an outspoken critic of the Mueller Russian investigation as Acting Attorney General.   Whitaker is expected to shut down or curtail the scope of the Mueller investigation since he has stated in the past that he believes: “It is time for Rosenstein, who is the acting attorney general for the purposes of this investigation, to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation to the four corners of the order appointing him special counsel." 

This is probably the beginning of a Constitutional crisis over the question of presidential power to cover up illegal and/or unethical acts involving himself and/or his closest aides.
