WTH? Schumer Calls for Investigation into AG Whitaker’s Communications with the Trump White House
Democrat leader Chuck Schumer called on the Justice Department to investigate acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker’s communications with the Trump White House.
Schumer and Democrats are outraged that AWOL Jeff Sessions was given the boot and must believe President Trump does not have the right to pick his own Attorney General.
This is more nonsense from the Democrats, a party that continues to prove they have no ideas to help the American people.
The Senate’s top Democrat asked the Justice Department’s watchdog on Tuesday to open an investigation into communications between acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker and the White House.
Sen. Charles Schumer wants the Justice Department’s inspector general to look into Whitaker’s communications beginning in 2017, when Whitaker was appointed chief of staff to then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Whitaker was elevated to the top job after Sessions was ousted by President Donald Trump earlier this month.
In a letter to Inspector General Michael Horowitz, Schumer, D-N.Y., said he wants inspector general’s investigators to look into whether Whitaker had access to confidential grand jury information in special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation. Schumer also wants investigators to examine whether Whitaker shared any information with Trump or others in the administration.
