#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 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
Another qualification for running Trump DOJ: Matthew Whitaker Was Part of Miami company shut down by the FTC as a "scam," whose defrauded customers Whitaker sent threatening letters to when they complained.… v @britsham @MiamiNewTimes h/t @WendySiegelman
Sessions just left DOJ, shook his replacement Whitaker’s hand, as Justice Dept employees clap and bid farewell. Sessions looks hurt he’s leaving, but they look like they’re the ones left behind on the sinking Titanic. Really, everything Trump touches dies sooner or later.
🔥Trump’s installation of Whitaker as acting AG was unconstitutional, says conservative lawyer (and Trump adviser KellyAnne Conway’s husband). “It’s illegal. And anything Mr. Whitaker does, or tries to do, in that position is invalid.” #WhitakerMustRecuse
Besides an illegal appointment, there are a host of issues w/ Whitaker heading DOJ. He led an anti-Dem group. He's biased against Mueller probe. He was involved w/ scam business. And he went on @CNN to brown nose Trump for a job. Surely he pledged loyalty.…
🚨New Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker Declared Courts ‘Inferior’ Branch of Govt and Criticized Supreme Court’s Power, denouncing the foundational Marbury v Madison as a “bad ruling” #ProtectMueller #WhitakerMustRecuse
I don't think Trump named Whitaker to be top law enforcement official for his brilliant legal mind. THIS is more likely: Acting AG Whitaker has no intention of recusing from Russia probe AND he would deny any request from Mueller to subpoena the president.…
“He seems to think much of the fabric of federal law that is part of our ordinary lives violates the Constitution…to which he is evidently going to take an oath”–@tribelaw on contradictory, far-right and ignorant views of Acting AG Whitaker
Lordy tapes: Listen to more damning comments by acting AG Whitaker on Trump’s absolute power to kill any investigation. “He has all the power of the executive and delegates that to people like the FBI director and the attorney general”… via @MotherJones
