Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Sunday, February 10, 2019

Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker said Friday that there's no reason to interfere in Special Counsel Robert Mueller's Russia investigation, undercutting President Donald Trump's frequent claim the probe is a "witch hunt." Whitaker gave key assurances in testimony before the House Judiciary Committee: "I have not interfered in any way" in Mueller's probe of Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign. The special counsel is honest and "is complying with all regulations." And "I have not talked to the president of the United States" or "senior White House officials" about the probe.

One of my thoughts was along that line as well.

On the other hand, given Acting AG Whitaker's combativeness, and his refusal to directly address the "witch hunt" question, another thought of mine was that he just wanted to try to make a farce of the House investigation, now that Rep Nunes is no longer in charge to do so.

Whitaker got wise to how many of Nixon's henchmen went to prison.

Right in front of you, if only you would open your eyes.
