New Acting AG Matthew Whitaker is a Former Iowa Hawkeye Tight End – And Ready to Pancake Deep State
Guest post by Joe Hoft
Matthew Whitaker, the new Acting AG who replaced Jeff Sessions after Sessions turned in his resignation Wednesday afternoon, is a former Iowa Hawkeye Tight End in college who played in the Rose Bowl. Let’s hope he pancakes the Deep State defenders.
Whitaker is also taking 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 –

But perhaps most important is that Whitaker is a former University of Iowa Tight End. Not only was Whitaker a starting Tight End for Iowa in the 1991 Rose Bowl, he also was a scholar athlete –
Whitaker was a top scholar at the University of Iowa. He graduated in three years with a bachelor’s degree in communications, starting his first year of law school during his senior year as a football player, which was considered an extraordinarily difficult task. Besides a law degree, he has a masters in business administration.
