Matthew Whitaker Can Legally Serve as Acting AGl, JD Says

Post by 1989TransAm » Wed Nov 14, 2018 3:56 pm

Of course he can. This is a no brainer except to partisan hacks in the dimoKKKRAT party who lack a brain.

"Trump’s DOJ says Whitaker can serve in acting role without Senate confirmation.
Matthew Whitaker can properly serve as acting attorney general without Senate confirmation, the Justice Department said in a legal opinion released Wednesday, though the document is unlikely to end the debate over Mr. Whitaker’s installation as the country’s top law-enforcement officer."

So when we he recuse himself from the DT/Mueller investigation, that has shown provable pre appointment bias on?

Wait, you're saying Rump's DJ found justification to approve Rump's decisions? Shocking.

Let's see what the courts say and how much fun the Dems have with him.....between court and house hearings I'll be surprised if he has time to set foot in the DOJ.

Of course he can, acting head of DOJ has the DOJ publish a memo that it's ok for him to be head of the DOJ. That sounds honest and unbiased right? Would you put your job on the line to tell your new boss that he should not be the boss?

No DA mistake, let me try again:

"So when will he also recuse himself from the DT/Mueller investigation, that he has shown provable pre appointment bias on? :mrgreen:

However can't believe that answer was not already a precondition to his appointment, figuring Sessions taught DT a lesson in this area.
