Earlier this month, our illustrious Criminal-in-Chief fired longtime thorn in his side, Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and appointed Sessions’ Chief of Staff Matthew Whitaker as the new acting Attorney General.
Matthew Whitaker is a major Trump fan, so this appointment didn’t come as a surprise, but Trump is probably now learning that he made a mistake, though he would never allow himself to admit it.
Since Whitaker’s appointment, not only have we found out that he was in full support of Trump’s campaign tactics and the attacks on Hillary Clinton, but he was also a member of a secret anti-liberal group that helped in the failed attempt to have Clinton indicted for using a personal server to send government emails.
As if all of that isn’t bad enough, it’s now being reported that Whitaker is under investigation for violating the Hatch Act after being appointed to Former AG Jeff Sessions office.
According to CNN:
An independent federal investigative agency is looking into whether acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker violated prohibitions on political activities by federal employees by accepting contributions to his 2014 Senate campaign earlier this year.Last January and February, when Whitaker served as chief of staff at the Department of Justice, four individuals donated a total of $8,800 to the committee for Whitaker’s unsuccessful 2014 run for a Senate seat in Iowa, according to Federal Election Commission records.
‘Evers told CNN that questions remain about the purpose and implications of the donations to Whitaker’s campaign.‘”After years of being completely dormant and only after he joined Jeff Sessions’ office as chief of staff, Whitaker’s campaign started receiving a cluster of contributions,” Evers said. “It appears to violate the black-letter law of the Hatch Act.”‘
