    Trump's new acting attorney general already has a plan to stop Mueller probe

    Trump's new acting attorney general already has a plan to stop Mueller probe


    Trump crony Whitaker.

    11/7/18
    In op-eds and interviews from before he joined the Justice Department, new acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker expressed his criticisms of special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe along with a plan for how it could be stymied. Following President Trump’s firing on Wednesday of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Mueller’s investigation into potential collusion between the Trump campaign and Russia will now be overseen by Whitaker instead of Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein. Whitaker was critical of the investigation in an August 2017 CNN op-ed, writing that the special counsel has “come up to a red line in the Russia 2016 election-meddling investigation that he is dangerously close to crossing.” “It does not take a lawyer or even a former federal prosecutor like myself to conclude that investigating Donald Trump’s finances or his family’s finances falls completely outside of the realm of his 2016 campaign and allegations that the campaign coordinated with the Russian government or anyone else. That goes beyond the scope of the appointment of the special counsel,” continued Whitaker in the piece.

    In an appearance last year on CNN, Whitaker laid out the plan he could now use to limit the Mueller investigation. “So I could see a scenario where Jeff Sessions is replaced with a recess appointment,” Whitaker said in July 2017, “and that attorney general doesn’t fire Bob Mueller, but he just reduces his budget to so low that his investigation grinds to almost a halt.” Sessions hired Whitaker as his chief of staff in September 2017 after his views about Mueller were public. Whitaker was then a former U.S. attorney who had run for the Senate from Iowa as a Republican in 2014, promising that he would vote for federal judicial nominees who have “a Biblical view of justice.”
    Threatening to confine the broad scope of the Mueller investigation that has been copacetic now for 18 months.

    What Whitaker is alluding to here is premeditated obstruction of justice.

    He was hired by Sessions despite a clear and unambiguous bias against the Mueller investigation.

    This religious kook shouldn't be anywhere within a mile of the US Department of Justice.


    The GOP stranglehold on American government is over and accountability is now part of the governing equation. Hallelujah!

    As far as the left is concerned someone saying "I didn't do it!" is obstructing justice.

    Besides, this guy is acting AG. There will be an appointee soon enough.

    And/or defamation of the one making the charge.....those who are accused according to the New Left are not to be allowed to defend themselves publicly.

    The Liberals of Old are crying in their graves.
    When society throws away the Truth Tellers prepare for the worst, for it is surely coming.
    Open your eyes and your mind and then speak truth..........That is the only way forwards.

    THIS is a scary thought....

    While he was still in government, Scott Pruitt lobbied Trump to fire Jeff Sessions and appoint him as USAG.

    Why even post if your contribution doesn't even surpass that of a twelve year old?

    Luckily, New York State is already pursuing the corrupt activities of Trump and his family.

    And, oh yeah, Democrats have the House, so any investigation that gets quashed by this hack can be picked up by the Democrats.

    And, oh yeah again, the more Trump meddles, the more guilty he looks and the more he's begging for an obstruction of justice charge.



    But go ahead and poke your finger in the nation's eye, Mr. Trump. You're already the most miserable "winner" in the world. Think how frustrated you're going to be at the blowback from even more blatant manipulation of our justice system.
