The Washington post reports Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker ignored DOJ ethics officials recommending he recuse himself from the Russia Probe and a secret memo is revealed. Trump’s pick to permanently take over as Attorney General wrote a memo to the Trump administration outlining arguments against Mueller’s obstruction inquiry arguing Mueller’s approach to potential obstruction by Trump was "fatally misconceived."

It's crazy that the criminal is allowed to appoint the judge in his ruling. Let Congress name the AG rather than Stupid Dumpty Trumpty.

Matt Whitaker clearly wants to go to prison for obstruction of justice. The report says that DoJ ethics officials told Whitaker that he should recuse himself, but Whitaker's advisers told him not to. In other words, Trump told him not to. Another case of clear cut obstruction of justice.

Matt Whitaker is a shiester con man so he gets along great with Trump. The guy Trump nominated to be the permanent AG just as bad. Barr should not be confirmed unless he recuses himself from anything to do with the Mueller Investigation.

The Democrats and yes the nation have got to get it through their thick sculls that the GOP and especially Trump care nothing for the well being of our nation in any capacity. This talk of Bi-partnership is music to the GOP because all of it is going to their side because unless it is worthless the Democrats get nothing in return.
The Republican leaders (CEOs) want access to our military and laws that make it easier to plunder our nations natural reasorcesss, not to mention out and out corruption.
