Fmr. Russia Probe Boss: Whitaker Could Trigger 'Ethics Civil War' | The Beat With Ari Melber | MSNBC 5
New audio has been unearthed of President Trump’s pick to replace Attorney General Jeff Sessions, denying Russia interfered with the U.S. election and laying out an argument for his own recusal. Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker previously argued that just the “appearance” of bias, should prompt recusal. Watergate Prosecutor Nick Akerman tells Ari Melber that the Government wouldn’t even put Whitaker on a jury, as a result of the public bias he’s demonstrated with regards to the Russia investigation.

Whitaker is a thug. I don’t understand this ethical civil war comment. It’s between people who have ethics and those willing to abdicate theirs to serve Trump.

Trump wants Whitaker to find out what's in Mueller's report before Congress can see it.

Investigate Whitaker. Maybe he's taking dark money as well. Rosenstein and Mueller have no Attorney General overseeing them, Whitaker has NO authority, he has NOT been confirmed by the Senate. Trump cannot simply appoint him. He MUST go through the process of Senate confirmation first. In the position of overseeing Mueller's investigation, he's powerless. One more charge against Trump for obstruction, plus Whitaker has a conflict of interest, if he doesn't recuse himself, he should go to jail, and be terminated from government service. NO ONE IS ABOVE THE LAW!

But seriously. Is it so hard to find a hack who has not incriminated him or herself in public like whitaker? Can trump only hire by television?
