FILE - In this April 23, 2014, file photo, President Barack Obama, left, fist bumps with Dr. Eric Whitaker on a golf course at Grove Park Inn in Asheville, N.C. Federal prosecutors are putting pressure on Whitaker, the former Illinois public health director, and friend of President Obama, to cooperate in an ongoing investigation of a state grant scandal. Whitaker is not accused of any wrongdoing, but prosecutors declared him a "hostile" witness in the case, rejecting his claims to be fully cooperating with a probe into others, including a former employee.
