Senate Dems file complaint against Trump’s appointment of acting attorney general Matt Whitaker

Senate Dems file complaint against Trump’s appointment of acting attorney general Matt Whitaker

Senate Democrats are trying to block acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker from leading the Justice Department.

Richard Blumenthal (Conn.), Sheldon Whitehouse (R.I.), and Mazie Hirono (Hawaii) filed a formal complaint in the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia against President Donald Trump’s “unlawful” appointment of Whitaker.

So funny to see little Adam Schitt (D-CA) talking about the fact that Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!

Mueller, as special counsel, is appointed by the Justice Department and does not need Senate approval.

It is not clear at this point how long Trump plans to keep Whitaker in the role of acting attorney general, or if he plans to make the appointment permanent, which would require Senate confirmation.
