Former acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker is scheduled for another round of testimony tomorrow before the House Judiciary Committee which is chaired by Democrat Jerry Nadler.
Whitaker will have a closed door session with the committee and is no longer working for the Justice Department which I think works well for the Democrats.
In addition, the timing could not be any better as now there is confirmation that President Trump ordered Jeff Sessions to open an investigation into Hillary Clinton.
When Whitaker replaced Sessions, he sent that same letter (see below) as an email attachment to Senator John Uber from Utah.
That story is below.
Like a Dictator, Trump Ordered the Investigation of Hillary Clinton. See the Proof
I will start off by saying that Jeff Sessions as the former U.S. Attorney General should know better, but as we have learned, Trump runs the White House with an iron fist and many are terrified to death to stand up to him.
Now, a letter that did not exist, does in fact exist, and it reveals that President Trump ordered an investigation into Hillary Clinton and the far-right conspiracy of Uranium One where Hillary has been accused of selling twenty percent of the country’s uranium to Russia in order to profit from it for her campaign.
Previous reports were that Trump did want to investigate Hillary, but was advised against it as it would result impeachment. Even former FBI Director James Comey said months ago that Trump wanted to investigate Hillary and the Clinton Foundation.
Now that we know the evidence exists, Democrats will continue to look into abuse of power by the President.
Adam Schiff, chair of the House Intelligence Committee, is even seeking to pass legislation on Trump and abuse of power with pardons. See below.
Remember, during the presidential election, Trump said he would appoint a special prosecutor to investigate Clinton. His base swallowed that up like Russian candy, regardless of the fact he does not have the legal authority to do so.
The letter obtained by a FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) request by American Oversight, a watchdog group, says that then Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker sent the same letter as an email attachment.
Now that we know that Whitaker will be back to testify before the House Judiciary Committee which at the time was chaired by Bob Goodlatte and now Jerry Nadler, this no doubt will lead to a new line of questioning.
Remember, abuse of power is much easier to prove than obstruction of justice, hence why Democrats are focusing on it.
However, getting this letter wasn’t so easy. As a matter of fact, American Oversight had to file a lawsuit against the Justice Department to get it.
Then, officials signed a sworn affidavit stating that the letter did not exist. If the cover up was done purposefully, perjury charges are sure to follow.
As you can see in the letter below and attached correspondence:
“In consultation with the Deputy Attorney General, I have requested that you review the matters referenced in the enclosed November 13, 2017, letter from Assistant Attorney General Stephen Boyd to House Judiciary Committee Chairman Robert Goodlatte and make recommendations to me or the Deputy Attorney General, as appropriate,” Sessions wrote to U.S. Attorney for the District of Utah John Huber,
It’s amazing that Republicans continue to focus on Uranium 1 as a way to distract and obstruct the investigation by Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Republicans have truly become a disgraced party.
