McConnell: 'The Mueller investigation is not under threat'

April FrancisНоя 13, 2018

The hearing largely involved whether Mueller's appointment as special counsel was constitutionally lawful, but also included a demand by the court for comments about the change in leadership.

Organizers claimed similar events were held in hundreds of places across the country.

Whitaker was named acting attorney general on Wednesday, after Jeff Sessions was forced out of the position by Trump.

When asked whether Whitaker would now assume control over the Mueller investigation, U.S. Justice Department spokesperson Sarah Flores said Whitaker would be "in charge of all matters" under the purview of the department.

Trump does know Whitaker, and has spoken about the Russian Federation investigation with him. A Justice Department spokeswoman told the newspaper that Whitaker was not aware of any fraudulent conduct.

The Senate Committee intends to defend against dismissal of spectacular USA Robert Mueller in connection with the investigation of the influence of Russian Federation on elections of the American President. After all, it's not unusual, as Trump said in his press conference earlier Wednesday, to have some turnover after an election.

At week's end, Matthew Whitaker's future at the helm of the Justice Department appeared uncertain at best as President Donald Trump denied even knowing the man.

Dershowitz, a Harvard Law professor emeritus and author of "The Case Against Impeaching Trump", said the petition is a bit "hypocritical", because what they really want is for Rosenstein, not Whitaker, to oversee Special Counsel Robert Mueller's probe. He sent a department-wide note after his appointment in which he said, "As we move forward, I am committed to leading a fair Department with the highest ethical standards, that upholds the rule of law, and seeks justice for all Americans". In October, President Trump also told Fox News, "Matt Whitaker's a great guy".

"My observation is that Matt has a very strong relationship with the president, and this comes with conversations I've had with friends and others that work in the administration", added Larson, who also served as US ambassador to Latvia under former President George W. Bush.

Am I supposed to say, 'Oh, now he's never qualified to serve in government?' " Trump asked. The president has called Mueller's investigation a "witch-hunt" and criticized Sessions for recusing himself from overseeing Mueller's probe. And since Sessions technically resigned instead of forcing the White House to fire him, he opened the door under federal law to allowing the president to choose his successor instead of simply elevating Rosenstein, said University of Texas law professor Stephen Vladeck.

For starters, the attorney general serves at the pleasure of the president and can be replaced at any time for any reason.

George Terwilliger III, a former deputy attorney general who is a Sessions ally and familiar with his senior staff, described Whitaker as a "good lawyer" with "good political skills and instincts" and said he had grown close to the White House. A growing chorus of legal experts say the latter makes Whitaker's appointment unconstitutional. The president could, and has in our nation's history, said stop investigating this person and please investigate this other person.

President Trump fired Jeff Sessions from his attorney general post yesterday.

"I'm profoundly concerned about it", he said.

Trump also called Ryan "very nasty" and said she "shouldn't be".

Many Democrats and some Republicans are asking the same question. It was not mentioned in the press release calling Thursday's demonstration, nor by speakers at the demonstrations in Washington and NY.
