Mueller is closing in.

Conspiring with Russia:

Donald Trump, his campaign, his organization and his associates knew of the intent of the Russian Federation to carry out the Russian Intervention as early as November 2015. /1
#WhitakerMustRecuse
Donald Trump, his campaign, his organization and his associates illegally conspired to expand its involvement with Russia beyond the Russian Intervention itself, through efforts from November 2015 at least until June 2016, to negotiate and build the Moscow Trump Tower Project /2
Currying Favor with Russia:

The Moscow Project “was a lucrative business opportunity,” the Special Counsel notes, “that sought, and likely required, the assistance of the Russian government.” /3

Toilet boy must recuse.

As board member of a scam patent company under FBI investigation for defrauding customers of millions, Matthew Whitaker lacks the judgement to oversee a high school talent show, let alone the #TrumpRussia investigation.

Don’t be afraid of calling your congress persons, they work for you! Here’s how to do it right! 👇

On Dec 7th, Whitaker met with Jared Kushner, a principle of the #TrumpRussia investigation.

Where is the outrage from the crowd who crowed bloody murder over the Clinton/Lynch tarmac meeting?

Lynch recused.

So all of us in the #resistance are giving ourselves a big pat on the back for the #BlueWave. After all, we took 40 seats and soon @TeamPelosi will be House Speaker

Great job! We think. After two long years we can finally take it easy.

NOT. SO. FAST.

Yes, it was wonderful to see those Democratic candidates win. And nice to see our effort rewarded.

With control of the House, we now have a Constitutional check on the president PLUS we control more governorships and state legislatures

But there’s still a TON of work to do.
As the past few days have shown, we still have a corrupt president: compromised by Russia, beholden to Saudi Arabia, unwilling to acknowledge basic facts about climate change and seemingly unconcerned about the sanctity of human life.

#FTR: ALL THESE STORIES HAVE SOMETHING IN COMMON.

1/ Trump stands by the Saudi Crown Prince MBS who MURDERED Jamal Khashoggi, his perceived POLITICAL ENEMY, and a U.S. Resident.

And now, Trump smeared Khashoggi as an "enemy of state," without evidence.
washingtonpost.com/politics/2018/…
2/ Trump has been looking into handing over U.S. Resident Fetullah Gulen — Turkish Autocrat Erdogan's perceived POLITICAL ENEMY, who he calls a "terrorist" — to Turkey to prosecute (and likely kill) w/o evidence...

...to appease Turkey and cover for MBS.

3/ In July, Trump thought it was an 'incredible offer" to hand over U.S. Resident and former U.S. Ambassador Michael McFaul — Autocrat Vladamir Putin's perceived POLITICAL ENEMY — to Russia for interrogation and potential prosecution, without evidence.

"If Whitaker doesn't recuse himself and has any involvement in Mueller's probe, we will expose it, including whether he made any commitments to Trump, is serving as a back channel, or interfering in the probe. He will be held accountable. There must be no ambiguity about that."
"We are calling on the Chief Ethics Official at DOJ to notify us whether Mr. Whitaker has been advised to recuse himself from overseeing Mueller’s investigation. And, we will force Congress to act to protect the Mueller investigation." | @SenSchumer

"Jerry Nadler of New York @RepJerryNadler, the likely incoming chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, called the acting attorney general, Matthew Whitaker, “a complete political lackey.” | @AndrewKragie @TheAtlantic

Matthew Whitaker’s only qualification for AG: a string of hostile cable news appearances toward the Mueller investigation he would oversee.

A paid board member of a company under criminal FBI investigation.

Whitaker’s judgement is laughable.

Tell your reps, #WhitakerMustRecuse
Trump forced Sessions’ resignation and installed a Trump lackey, Matt Whitaker as Acting AG, despite views by both liberals and conservatives that the appointment is inappropriate and unconstitutional.

Urge your reps to demand Whitaker recuse.

FBI conducting criminal investigation of company Matthew Whitaker was a paid board member of for defrauding millions from customers, some disabled vets.

A SCAM ARTIST CANNOT BE PUT IN CHARGE OF THE JUSTICE DEPARTMENT

Another PREDATOR appointed by an administration of PREDATORS.
The Federal Bureau of Investigation is conducting a criminal investigation of a Florida company accused of scamming millions from customers during the period that Matthew Whitaker, the acting U.S. attorney general, served as a paid advisory-board member.

Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as AG is
UN-CONSTITUTIONAL.

So says, among other people, George Conway, Kellyanne Conway’s husband.

Having forced the resignation of Jeff Sessions, an appointment to AG must be confirmed by the Senate.

Sept 26: Matthew Whitaker, a Trump Loyalist, Is Seen as Ascendant

"John Kelly has privately described Whitaker as the West Wing’s “eyes and ears” in the DOJ ..

He has frequently visited the Oval Office and is said to have an easy chemistry with Trump" nytimes.com/2018/09/26/us/…
The nation's top law enforcement official is a scam artist and a thug.

Just like the POTUS.

The FBI is conducting a criminal investigation of a company for which acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker served as paid advisory-board member.

Conveniently, Whitaker now oversees the FBI. wsj.com/articles/fbi-i…

"It was not widely known among White House staff that Whitaker commented repeatedly on Mueller's investigation in interviews & on TV -- which is ironic given this is what drew Trump to him and raises continued questions over the depth of the administration's vetting process."
Acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker said judges should be Christian, with a "biblical view of justice," and proposed blocking non-religious people from judicial appointments theguardian.com/us-news/2018/n…
.@MattWhitaker46 protected his Twitter account after @AdamParkhomenko started posting his Russia and Putin-related tweets, dating back to 2010.

#BREAKING Trump FIRES Attorney General Jeff Sessions. Trump asked him to submit letter of resignation. Let's remember Sessions did everything Trump wanted, even separated children at border. The ONLY reason Trump fired him: Sessions recused, didn't stop the Russia investigation.
Trump fired Sessions and replaced him with a man who has openly expressed hostility to the Mueller investigation. Matthew Whitaker wrote in 2017 that investigating Trump's financial ties to Russia is beyond Mueller's scope. Ridiculous then. Now dangerous. cnn.com/2017/08/06/opi…
CNN reports Kelly fired Sessions at Trump's request. Before the cray am press conference, at which Trump threatened Democrats who would do their oversight DUTY to investigate him, whipped Republicans who shunned him…and called a woman of color 'racist' for asking abt Nationalism
