BREAKING: Democrat Senators Sue to Block Whitaker From Serving as Attorney General

On Monday, three Senate Judiciary Democrats sued to block Matthew Whitaker from serving as Attorney General.

Senators Blumenthal, Whitehouse and Hirono sued to block Whitaker from “serving in any office within the federal government” because the Senate hasn’t consented.

Both President Trump and Whitaker are named as defendants.

Market Watch reported:

Three Democratic senators have filed a lawsuit challenging the appointment of Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general. Sens. Richard Blumenthal, Sheldon Whitehouse and Mazie Hirono say in a filing with the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia that the Senate hasn’t consented to Whitaker “serving in any office within the federal government, let alone the highest office at the DOJ.”

Matthew Whitaker was appointed as Acting Attorney General on November 7th after Jeff Sessions resigned at the request of President Trump.

The Democrats and Deep State have been targeting Whitaker because he now has control over the Mueller witch hunt.

Fox News legal analyst Gregg Jarrett says Whitaker’s appointment is completely legal.

JARRETT: Whitaker’s appointment is NOT unconstitutional or invalid. Under the Vacancies Reform Act, the President is authorized to designate as Acting A-G an officer or employee who has been at the DOJ for at least 90 days. Whitaker meets this legal standard.
