Obviously, because the law must always be what Trump says it is.

The law is what the Supreme Court says it is
If they feel like they need to hear the case.
Not the Senate
Not the House
Not an ex-NY Circuit Judge

Whitaker was confirmed a few years ago as a U.S. Attorney.

Wonder if that "qualifies" per Judge Nap ?



Nope, he resigned from that post in 2009. He would need to be a currently appointed member of the DOJ.


Citing the actual law might help you.

The Judge will obviously be called a sell out now.

Why ?
He is not a current Judge on the Supreme Court

You are the one who said that since he was appointed previously that he should be able to take this post. The burden of proof is on you bud.

😎

Sounds like a swing & a miss by Napolitano. Last I heard, US attorneys are indeed a Senate-confirmed position.

[Whitaker] was not confirmed by the United States Senate for a leadership position at the Justice Department. The White House will have to work this out. Who has been confirmed and who’s next in line? Deputy attorney general Rosenstein,” he said.

You need to change your title
The actual words were "may not be..." (and by one person- an ex-NY Circuit Judge.)
May = might "Mite (might) is what grows on a chicken's a__"
You have as absolute dogma
Big No-no

Napolitano is consistently wrong on a wide range of issues. Been following his takes for a while and do not recall him ever being correct on a single issue. I actually just ignore everything he says. Great gift of gab though on rules. Thing is nobody follows rules in DC. The only rule they follow is breaking the rules for their side.

Talk is cheap and there are plenty of liberals out there willing to listen. Napolitano has been wrong many times in the past. Liberals are very worried they are about to be exposed

Interesting...both if this is accurate (and I have general faith in Judge Nappy to be correct), and that you still think that pointing out that the Mueller investigation is overstepping its original intent is a "bias."

Thanks for the heads up on the former, though--gives me something to look into. Of course, if Whitaker can't be acting, then he shouldn't be acting.

ETA: I especially like the Nancy Pelosi quote at the end of that article--using her logic, she should recuse herself from being a Representative, since she has actively sought to destroy the integrity and functionality of the House.

Be nice to have a libertarian like Napolitano who loves America and the constitution for a change of pace.


I wish he'd run for President.

He's one of the only people on Fox that I don't want to smash their skull in with a sledge hammer.


Remember kids, the Left has no hate in their hearts. Its the Fascist Right that do, and they should be punished for such.

On February 3, 2004, Matthew G. Whitaker was nominated by President George W. Bush to serve as the United States Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa. Matt's nomination was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate on June 3, 2004, and he was sworn into office on June 15, 2004.

Wish I could find a better source.

According to Fox News legal commentator Andrew Napolitano stated that Matt Whitiaker is not legally qualified to become the acting Attorney General.


Napolitano, on "Fox & Friends," said Whitaker is not "legally qualified" to become acting attorney general.

"There’s only three ways a person can become acting attorney general," Napolitano said. "One, if you are the deputy attorney general β€” Rod Rosenstein β€” the president signs an executive order and makes you acting."

"Two is if you are already in the Department of Justice and have a job that requires Senate confirmation and you have received confirmation," Napolitano added. "That is not the case with Matt Whitaker because he’s the chief of staff. That does not require Senate confirmation."

Whitaker's most recent post was chief of staff to Sessions at the Justice Department.

"Three is a recess appointment, which is not relevant here because the Senate is not in recess," Napolitano continued.

"So with deference and respect to what the president’s trying to do β€” he has every right to have whoever he wants run the Justice Department β€” he has chosen someone who does not qualify under the law to be the acting attorney general," Napolitano added.


So in addition to the bias Whitaker has shown toward the Mueller investigation, he isn't even legally qualified for the job Trump appointed him to. But who cares about laws?

Could you please source the law your OP is referring to. I would rather read the actual law than take some talking heads word for it.
Thanks

Dont worry.

Trump will make the required adjustments if any and the Russia Witch Hunt will be shut down.

Boohoo eh? πŸ˜„

Lol I did. Is he in the line of succession?

Nope,

Is he recess,..sited the act.

He can be appointed by the president with an EO.

How long are senate confirmations good for?

Are they good for any position?

It seems silly to have to confirm sessions or rosenstein since they were already us attorneys.
