Perhaps it’s his plummeting respect among patriotic, conservative Americans, the open criticism on conservative news outlets, a fear for his job, or something else that got AG Jeff Sessions’ attention.
Whatever it may have been, it seems that the alarm has rung and he’s starting to awaken from his eight months of hibernation. America may be about to have an Attorney General again.
There’s still time for the Trump agenda to be saved and an aggressive Attorney General, particularly on the heels of the rampant corruption of the Obama regime, is indispensible in that effort.
Signaling the DOJ may be open for business, Attorney General Jeff Sessions has just appointed as his new chief of staff a former US Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa during the George W. Bush years, Matthew Whitaker.
What could make his appointment particularly significant is that he has recently stated that the Mueller investigation could be turning into a witch hunt. There are many who would argue it’s been a witch hunt from day one, but this statement coming from the new chief of staff is undeniably a positive development.
Whitaker, who was a CNN legal commentator, wrote last month that President Trump was “absolutely correct” in his assertion that it was a “violation” for special counsel Mueller to investigate the Trump family’s finances.
Whitaker wrote, “Mueller has come up to a red line in the Russia 2016 election-meddling investigation that he is dangerously close to crossing. If he were to continue to investigate the financial relationships without a broadened scope in his appointment, then this would raise serious concerns that the special counsel’s investigation was a mere witch hunt.”
He contended that Deputy AG Rod Rosenstein should “act to ensure the investigation is within its jurisdiction and within the authority of the original directive. It is time for Rosenstein, who is the acting attorney general for the purposes of this investigation, to order Mueller to limit the scope of his investigation to the four corners of the order appointing him special counsel.”
He’ll be able to influence and help to guarantee that Rosenstein does just that in his new position but there is little doubt that his appointment, coming on the heels of such a clear public statement denouncing the Mueller atrocity, is also intended to send a message to Mueller and Rosenstein.
Prior to accepting the position as Sessions’ chief of staff, Whitaker was the executive director of the Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust (FACT), a conservative watchdog group focused on Democrat ethics issues. There’s nothing more troublesome in the broad range of unethical activities by Democrats than the ongoing Mueller effort to unseat the President.
Whitaker made the statement in May that he believed there was a “strong case” to be made against former espionage criminal Hillary Clinton and that she should be “extremely grateful” she wasn’t prosecuted. Maybe he can do something to correct that Comey – Lynch collaborative miscarriage of justice as well.
Whitaker replaces Jody who has been nominated to become assistant attorney general in charge of the department’s Civil Division.
