Whitaker appointment brings praise and protest in Iowa

Whitaker appointment brings praise and protest in Iowa”

Mueller kept a low profile for the past month as voters were mulling their choices for this week's elections. And did his campaign have advance knowledge of illegally hacked Democratic emails?

When a reporter asked Trump if he wants the acting attorney general to rein in Mueller, the president answered: "What a stupid question". Mr Whitaker has replaced replaced Jeff Sessions who was forced out by Mr Trump earlier this week.

Hurwitz said that reality is "topsy-turvy" when progressives are protesting the firing of Sessions because the former Alabama senator is someone that "we have known for years is an enemy of everything that's good and progressive and forward-thinking".

"If you don't know Matthew Whitaker, he's a political hack who has spoken in great detail about ways to hurt the Mueller investigation", the Indivisible statement said.

Trump himself is also reportedly "very depressed" about the possibility of his son being indicted in the probe - as he continues to insist it is a "witch hunt".

An invite for the nationwide "Nobody Is Above the Law" rallies, which garnered over 21,000 RSVPs in NY, declared that "Donald Trump just crossed a red line, violating the independence of the investigation pursuing criminal charges in the Trump-Russia scandal and cover-up". But the work is not done. Campaign efforts include ending the Iraq war and combatting gun violence by ending politicians' affiliation with the NRA, but since 2016 the organization says it has been "a pillar of the Resistance to Trump".

"Mueller was not Senate confirmed", the president said. The tally is still coming in from Palm Beach and Broward counties, and Mr. Trump did not rule out a federal role in potential recounts. You have to treat the White House with respect.

The protests come a day after Trump effectively fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions, a move many see as clearing the way for Trump to go after Mueller.

It's unclear what additional charges prosecutors are pursuing and how much of it pertains to the president personally. "I don't know Matt Whitaker", Trump said.

In theory, Whitaker could order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation or end it altogether.

He has, for instance, talked down the Mueller investigation on a number of TV talk shows.

McConnell didn't weigh in on whether Whitaker should recuse himself from the Mueller probe.

Trump blamed the recusal for the appointment of Mueller, who took over the Russian Federation investigation two months later and began examining whether Trump's hectoring of Sessions was part of a broader effort to obstruct the probe. And not everyone is convinced he needs to.

"As Sessions's chief of staff, Whitaker met with the president in the Oval Office more than a dozen times, normally accompanying the attorney general, according to a senior administration official", the Washington Post reported yesterday. He said he has not discussed the position with former New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, the subject of some speculation.
