Trump’s New Acting Attorney General Could Mean Trouble for Mueller and His Russia Investigation

If his past is any indication, Matt Whitaker may cause trouble for Robert Mueller and his Russia investigation.

Jeff Sessions resigned as attorney general on Wednesday and soon after, President Donald Trump appointed his chief of staff Matt Whitaker as acting attorney general in his place.

According to officials, this means that Whitaker will now oversee Mueller’s investigation and will have control over the funding of the probe.

Whitaker has been an outspoken critic of the investigation of the past, heavily criticizing the motives of the investigation and the way it was being handled.

During an appearance on CNN, the acting attorney general also claimed that an effective way to stop Mueller would be to cut funding for the investigation.

Watch:

While it is uncertain if the probe will discover incriminating evidence against the president’s campaign, many are questioning Whitaker’s past and if it disqualifies him from overseeing the investigation.

According to former prosecutor Mimi Roach in a comment for Law & Crime, she believes that this decision is obviously trying to slow down or stop the investigations.

However, Trump has been very adamant that the investigation is pointless and has called it a “witch hunt” in the past. In the coming weeks, it will be interesting to see how Whitaker’s new leadership will affect the status of the investigation

    I doubt he will do anything to stop Mueller. I think Trump will “allow” the protect Mueller investigation to proceed. Once he comes out clearing Trump’s name of any wrongdoing, but implicating Obama with several crimes, ALL of them will then turn on Mueller and say he is incompentent and has a conflict of interst being a Republican. That is why he hired a majority Democratic staff (many which has involvement in Obama’s crimes). Keep you friends close, but your enemies CLOSER. I think that is what Mueller did. I could be wrong, but from what I have seen recently, Democrats will turn their views on a dime to fit their narrative.

      Obama? LOL
      Remember that Mueller caught another crook from Queens: John Gotti aka the Teflon Don!

    Trump said he’s never met Whitaker… they’ve met over ten times. Another lie from Spanky.
    Hell, Trump has probably been with Whitaker more times than he’s been with his daughter Tiffany!
