    Trumpís acting attorney general, Matt Whitaker, has no intention of recusing from Russia probe, associates say

    By Devlin Barrett, Matt Zapotosky and Josh Dawsey November 8 at 12:17 PM

    Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker has no intention of recusing himself from overseeing the special counsel probe of Russian interference in the 2016 election, according to people close to him who added they do not believe he would approve any subpoena of President Trump as part of that investigation.

    Since stepping into his new role on Wednesday, Whitaker has faced questions ó principally from Democrats ó about whether he should recuse from the Russia investigation, given that he has written opinion pieces in the past about the investigation, and is a friend and political ally of a witness.

    On Thursday, two people close to Whitaker said he has no intention of taking himself off the Russia case.

    Ethics officials at the Justice Department are likely to review his past work to see if he has any financial or personal conflicts. In many instances, that office does not require a Justice Department official to recuse, but suggests a course of action. In the past, senior Justice Department officials tend to follow such advice, but they are rarely required to do so, according to officials familiar with the process.

    3. How the hell does trump get to pick who leads the criminal investigation...

    Of himself!!

    Does a murder suspect get to pick his judge and jury?
    How is it that the deep state and their complicit if not colluding Democrats get to lead an investigation where THEY criminally used our intelligence assets to spy on an opponent?

    Oh, and it's NOT a CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION no matter what the DUmmies say.

    4. I do not believe trump will be removed by legal means. I do believe he will be removed, however.

    Listen, I'm using my words carefully here. But I think those who take the time to read this will understand the full gravity of my statement. The choice will be yours. Be ready.

    Sessions recused himself because he was a potential witness, the appearance of a conflict of interest. Whitaker has no such conflict of interest, and therefore no reason to recuse himself. This narrative is the partisan MSM trying to stir up a fauxny issue. Unsurprisingly.

    a veiled threat by a low post DUmmy



    One of the first things Whitaker should do is locate and release the memo from rosenstein that started the mueller investigation which will show what the scope of the investigation was supposed to be and compare it to what it has become. become.
