Trump Sets The Record Straight On Acting AG Matt Whitaker Amid All Rumors

The resignation of Jeff Sessions and installment of Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker has caused quite a stir in Washington, primarily with Democrats.

Democrat Senator Chuck Schumer called Whitaker’s appointment a “Constitutional Crisis.” And multiple Democrats have pleaded for him to recuse himself from the Russia investigation, as they believe the fallout surrounding Sessions was one big plan to end the Mueller probe.

Republican Senator Jeff Flake is even working with Democrat Senator Coons to arrange a Senate Vote that could help preserve the current state Mueller’s investigation.

This move appears to have been made out of fear Whitaker or anyone future appointed AG will end the probe on behalf of Trump.

President Trump has remained fairly mum after announcing Whitaker’s new position via a tweet. But in wake of all false notions that has been tossed around by Democrats and mainstream media, the President set the record straight on his relationship, or should we say lack of relationship, with Whitaker.

In a pair of tweets on Saturday night, Trump said, “Matthew G. Whitaker is a highly respected former U.S. Attorney from Iowa. He was chosen by Jeff Sessions to be his Chief of Staff. I did not know Mr. Whitaker. Likewise, as Chief, I did not know Mr. Whitaker except primarily as he traveled with A.G. Sessions. No social contact.”

Sessions fell into the left’s trap of recusing himself right after he was appointed to Attorney General in 2016, which ultimately limited his role. And now Democrats are scrambling that Whitaker falls out of their control since he likely won’t recuse himself.

With the endorsements of key figures, including Senate Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley, it will be tough for Democrats and Flake to persuade other U.S. Senators to take the bait that the temporary appointment of Whitaker is all about the Mueller probe.
