Here We Go… State of Maryland Files Legal Objection to President Trump’s Appointment of Matthew Whitaker as Acting Attorney General
Guest post by Joe Hoft
The Deep State is absolutely terrified of President Trump’s appointment to Acting Attorney General, Matthew Whitaker. Today the state of Maryland announced their legal action into the constitutionality of Whitaker’s appointment. The Deep State must have him removed to continue the Mueller witch hunt.
WNYC reported this morning that –
President Trump’s choice of Matthew Whitaker to be the acting attorney general is running into a buzz-saw of opposition, and not just from Democrats. And now, the first legal action is being filed Tuesday, by the state of Maryland, challenging Whitaker’s status.
It does not involve limits to asylum claims that Whitaker has already put into effect, nor any challenge involving the Mueller investigation of the president, which Whitaker has frequently criticized.
Maryland and the deep state are trying to get DAG Rod Rosenstein appointed as Acting Attorney General –
The state seeks a preliminary injunction that prevents the federal government from responding to the suit while Whitaker appears as acting attorney general. Instead, Maryland requests a declaration that Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein is the acting attorney general.
Matthew Whitaker, the new Acting AG who replaced Jeff Sessions after Sessions turned in his resignation last Wednesday afternoon, is a former Iowa Hawkeye Tight End in college who played in the Rose Bowl.
When appointed as Acting AG, Whitaker took over Rosenstein’s job overseeing the Mueller witch hunt. He is described as a “Trump loyalist” who has been privately described as the West Wing’s “eyes and ears” in the Justice Department, says the New York Times.
In August of 2017, Matthew Whitaker penned an op-ed for CNN titled, “Mueller’s Investigation of Trump is Going Too Far” wherein he argued the Special Counsel is roving outside of his jurisdiction to investigate Trump-Russia collusion.
And there’s more…in July 2016, before the presidential election, Matthew Whitaker penned an opinion piece for USA today where he argued that Hillary Clinton should be locked up.
According to FBI Director James Comey’s statement on Tuesday, former secretary of State Hillary Clinton could have been charged with violating several different code sections, and he detailed the evidence that supports bringing criminal charges.
Yet, Director Comey’s judgment was that “no reasonable prosecutor” would bring the case. I disagree. I believe myself to have been a reasonable prosecutor, and when the facts and evidence show a criminal violation has been committed, the individuals involved should not dictate whether the case is prosecuted…
…A reasonable prosecutor may ask, if on numerous occasions, an unknown State Department employee had taken top secret information from a secured system, emailed that information on a Gmail account, and stored the information on a personal server for years, would that individual be prosecuted? I believe they would.
Whitaker was on CNN and he questioned the wisdom of the Mueller team knocking down former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort’s door at 4 in the morning –

He also found it ironic that former FBI Director James Comey could be investigated for midhandling classified information –

In 2015 he pointed out the obvious that Obama’s Administration was the most corrupt ever –
