Former Department of Justice Attorneys Want Matthew Whitaker Gone
Former attorneys for the Justice Department that worked for both Democratic and Republican Presidents, more than four hundred in all, want Matthew Whitaker gone. The statement was released earlier this week.
“Because of our respect for our oaths of office and our personal experiences carrying out the department’s mission, we are disturbed by the president’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker to serve as Acting Attorney General.”
“Because of the profound responsibilities the position entails and the independence it requires, it can only be filled by someone who has been subjected to the strictest scrutiny under the process required by the Constitution.”
Similar letters have been signed in the past by current state Attorney Generals.

Matthew Whitaker’s Dark Money
Imagine receiving millions of dollars in funding, but from who is a secret. Imagine that the person who received that money is now a top government official in President Trump’s administration. Well, you don’t have to imagine because that person is acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker.
Whitaker for reasons unknown but one can speculate, had failed to release his financial disclosure forms, but now that he has, we know that his non-profit which existed solely to attack and file complaints against Democrats, resulted in a large payday for him, and who contributed to that payday is a mystery.
Whitaker’s non-profit called FACT – Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust, earned him $904,000. Whitaker was basically the only employee, which means he earned his almost $1 million salary by filing baseless complaints against Democrats which of course, includes Hillary Clinton.
FACT’s largest expense was ready for this: Whitaker’s salary.
Since FACT is a “non-profit,” contributions can be anonymous. FACT was supposed to hold public officials accountable and provide transparency, and the irony is that Whitaker’s non-profit is anything but transparent.
Since Whitaker was appointed as Trump’s flunky, he has revised his financial disclosure forms five times already, including the day he was appointed to replace Jeff Sessions.
I’ve said it before and will again; I didn’t agree with Jeff Sessions’ policies, especially as it relates to immigration. But, I’ve yet deny Sessions’ qualifications as Attorney General, nor his ethics. Whitaker not only lacks the ethics to be the nation’s top prosecutor, but he is also not qualified. But as always, Trump seeks loyalty over competence every time, just like dictators.
President Trump no doubt drained the swamp, and along the way built an Olympic size swimming pool, a spa, and a golf course all at the expense of tax payers.
