Rep. Jerrold Nadler, D-Google, raises ethics questions over Whitaker’s refusal to recuse himself from Mueller witch-hunt

According to reports, Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker decided not to recuse himself from the Justice Department’s oversight of the anti-Trump witch-hunt being run by special counsel Robert Mueller.  This apparently didn’t sit too well with Jerrold Nadler, the New York Democrat paid thousands of dollars to represent Google.

In a statement emailed Thursday, Nadler raised questions over the ethics of Whitaker’s refusal to apparently let Mueller simply do whatever he wants to whomever he wants without any oversight whatsoever.

“We have asked the Department of Justice, repeatedly and over the course of several weeks, for more information about Mr. Whitaker’s ethics guidance—including for a copy of the guidance itself. I have even asked Mr. Whitaker for this information directly. To date, we have received no response from the Department. It is simply unacceptable that we are learning about this guidance through leaks to the press instead of from the Acting Attorney General himself, particularly when it seems that this decision is to satisfy President Trump and not to protect the integrity of the Department or its ongoing work,” he said.

“More concerning, at the moment, is the fact that career DOJ ethics officials appear to have had serious concerns about Mr. Whitaker’s ability and fitness to oversee the Special Counsel’s investigation. You can be sure I will be asking Mr. Whitaker about these concerns, and many others, when he appears before the House Judiciary Committee in January,” he added.

Translation: How dare Whitaker possibly stand in the way of the attempted coup d’etat against Trump…

Remember this is the same Jerrold Nadler who said that any attempt to remove Mueller would be seen as an attempt to aid the Russians.

Keep in mind that Democrats demanded former Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from any investigation involving alleged collusion between the Trump campaign and the Russians.  As is so typical of Republicans these days, Sessions caved into their demands.
