The thug behind AG Jeff Sessions to the right (green tie) appears to be now acting AG Whitaker.
It sure looks like Trump and Whitaker have had a protection racket (of a new sort) going. Trump would protect Whitaker and Whitaker Trump. That’s what it looks like.
“Top Dems Launch Investigation of Acting Attorney General’s Involvement in Company Charged with Bilking Consumers of Millions of Dollars
Nov 14, 2018 Press Release
Washington, D.C. (Nov. 14, 2018)—Today, Reps. Elijah E. Cummings, Jerrold Nadler, Frank Pallone, Jr., and Adam Schiff, the Ranking Members of the House Committees on Oversight and Government Reform, the Judiciary, Energy and Commerce, and Permanent Select Committee on Intelligence, respectively, sent seven letters requesting information relating to Acting Attorney General Matthew G. Whitaker’s involvement with World Patent Marketing, a company that allegedly bilked millions from consumers and suppressed criticism of their activities.
“On November 7, 2018, President Donald Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and put in his place Matthew G. Whitaker to serve as Acting Attorney General,” the Members wrote. “Because Mr. Whitaker was not confirmed by the Senate, both Republican and Democratic constitutional law experts warned that his appointment was, and continues to be, unconstitutional. In addition, because the Senate was not given an opportunity to properly vet Mr. Whitaker’s background, serious questions are now arising about his fitness to serve in this position of trust.”
