I have ‘not interfered’ with Mueller investigation, Whitaker says

I have ‘not interfered’ with Mueller investigation, Whitaker says

"Mr. Attorney General we are not joking here and your humor is not acceptable", Rep. Sheila Jackson Lee (D-Texas) replied. "Now, you are here because we have a constitutional duty to ask questions, and the Congress has a right to establish government rules".

Whitaker had publicly criticized the investigation before joining the Justice Department in 2017 but said on Friday he had not discussed it with Trump.

It is true that Barr, during his testimony before the Judiciary Committee, declined to make specific promises about how he would carry out his role overseeing the Mueller investigation.

Bickering ensued between Whitaker and a number of Democrats during the House hearing Friday, and Whitaker stunned the room when he attempted to call time on Chairman Jerrold Nadler (N.Y.).

Former US attorney and MSNBC contributor Chuck Rosenberg knocked Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker today for his comments at today's House Judiciary Committee hearing about special counsel Robert Mueller.

"I share your concern with the possibility that a media outlet was tipped off to Mr. Stone's indictment or his arrest". Stone was arrested early morning on January 25 by the Federal Bureau of Investigation at his Ft.

The House Committee approved the subpoena.

Despite Whitaker's clear answer, Jackson Lee complained she wanted a yes or no answer, but Nadler indicated to her that the questions was answered, so she moved on.

In a letter to Whitaker, Nadler withdrew the subpoena threat after the acting attorney agreed to attend the hearing.

Amid a heated back-and-forth, Nadler asked, "In your capacity as acting attorney general, have you ever been asked to approve any request or action to be taken by the special counsel?"

Acting US Attorney General Matthew Whitaker has said he has not spoken to the president or any senior White House staff about the Russian Federation inquiry. "I'm here voluntarily. We have agreed to five-minute rounds".

Under questioning by Nadler, Whitaker proved combative and sought to dodge questions about his conversations with Trump and his top advisers, citing long-standing policy against disclosing details of such discussions.

Demings, who referred to her time as Orlando police chief, told Whitaker, "I took an oath just like you did and I took that oath very, very seriously, to uphold the Constitution and to protect this country from all enemies, foreign and domestic". He is the person "ultimately in charge of the investigation", yet insisted he has not interfered in any way with it.

The hearing came a day after the chairman, Democratic Rep. Trading Whitaker in for him will be one of the Trump presidency's rare blessings.

"Yes or no? Nadler responded". He talks to Anna Maria Tremonti about his time working on Trump's campaign, and having the president's ear.

House Intelligence Committee Chairman Adam Schiff has also announced a sweeping investigation into Mr Trump's actions as president, and has hired former White House staff members to aid in the probe.

When it was Republican Rep. Doug Collins's (R-GA) turn to speak, he excoriated Democrats for waging nothing more than a "character assassination" against Whitaker with the goal of embarrassing President Trump.
