It is becoming more evident that the Whitaker nomination is purely to stop Mueller

Trump knows that he can't outright fire Mueller thanks to what happened to Nixon when he actually fired his special prosecutor. (Basically it only took two weeks for courts to call this action illegal) So, what is he left to do? Well, he understands that he would have a very tough time getting a loyalist confirmed through the Senate, so instead, he appointed a loyalist as Acting Attorney General.

You see we knew even before the election(As early as August) that Trump planned on firing Sessions after the mid-terms.[1] It has been apparent since July 2017 that Trump has wanted to fire Jeff Sessions.[2] In fact, the only reason he didn't fire Jeff Sessions sooner was due to the fact that Senate Republicans told the President they wouldn't confirm a new Attorney General.[3] Senator Lindsey Graham went to the lengths of saying "There will be holy hell to pay" if Trump fired Jeff Sessions.[4]

Fast forward to today, and Jeff Sessions has been fired and replaced by a controversial Acting Attorney General. So controversial in fact that two former Republican Attorney Generals have spoken out against Whitaker's appointment.[5] So, Trump has been mulling over firing Jeff Sessions for over a year and he still doesn't have a permanent replacement in mind? Yeah, even the Republicans in Congress aren't buying that one either.

Senate Republicans are urging Trump to quickly nominate a permanent Attorney General because they understand that the Whitaker nomination looks very bad.[6] If he would just name a permanent AG it would go a long way to silencing the calls of the Democrats that Whitaker isn't a valid AG and the push for legislation to protect Mueller. However, even with the pushing by his allies in the Senate, Trump has yet to make any move to appoint a permanent AG replacement.

So the argument boils down to this. Either Trump has spent the past year and a half thinking about firing Sessions with no thought for who he was going to replace him with. We can call this argument, defense by incompetence. Or, Trump has no intention of naming a permanent AG replacement and wants Whitaker for one reason, to protect him from Mueller. If it is option two, that is eerily similar to the Nixon playbook and we all know how that turned out.


[1] How soon will Donald Trump fire Jeff Sessions? After the midterms, he can get away with it
[2] Reports: Trump discussing firing Attorney General Jeff Sessions
[3] Republicans warn Trump: No confirmation hearing for a Sessions replacement, and no recess appointment either
[4] Graham: 'There will be holy hell to pay' if Sessions fired
[5] Two Republican former AGs raise questions on Trump's naming Matthew Whitaker to lead Justice Department
[6] GOP pushes Trump for new attorney general amid Mueller uproar

It is becoming more evident that the Mueller witch hunt is purely to protect the Hillary/Obama cabal from prosecution.

How exactly is Whitaker going to defend Trump?

If the Mueller was going to prematurely stopped, don't you think it would have been done?

Nonstop B.S. from you crybabies. The man will never do right in your eyes so why should anyone take your threads seriously?

1) Whitaker is a legitimate, eligible person for acting AG ( He is a current DOJ employee and has undergone Senate confirmation in the past to become a US attorney) so all you people making the claim he is not qualified are just factually wrong.

2) if Trump wanted him to stop Mueller , why hasn't he?

3) Even democrats know there will be nothing n the mueller report charging trump with obstruction or collusion, hence, the reason the dems are already saying they want to investigate the mueller investigation.

4) Trump has ZERO "allies" in congress so I don't know who you are referring too here.

Garbage.

Your first paragraph is based off assumptions that all leftist have wet dreams about, but we wouldn't mind either.

Your second paragraph is the result of an AG who wasn't doing anything, thus was asked for his resignation.

Ummm, all your links are garbage, some are straight up old to help reinforce a narrative NOT there with broadstroke techniques.

Example: Graham says holy hell if sessions is fired, link dated to 2017. Fast forward to this year...

"Trump should replace Sessions..."

Pitiful.

Secondly, those TWO former AG? What of it? Former Bush officials, they just gave an opinion and nothing more.

Actually, from that very link you sourced...

"Mukasey and Gonzales, who both questioned Whitaker's standing as a non-confirmed appointee, disagreed over whether the acting attorney general should recuse himself from overseeing the Mueller inquiry.

"I don't think he should recuse," Mukasey said. "These are past statements. The question is whether he is suited for the job." Et al.

I don't think he should recuse" 😌

Pathetic.

All in all, this thread is another hit piece that attempts to get the reader engage on some wild Nixon ride based off old ass links and assumptions, clearly none of it proves any angle you have presented.

For the critical and aspiring reader, this is a great way to sharpen your skills and see past the BS, lies and slander. I urge all to take whatever statements were linked and challenge them, its all easy as you only have to read beyond the titles Leftist and leftist OPs never seem to do.

Here, you'll see how this thread mimics liberal media to the tee.

Anyways, another one for the garbage bin.

Stop Mueller from what?

If he doesn't have anything concrete from the last 2 years, why are we still entertaining this farce.

Here is why this is wrong or one can say, out of touch with reality.

Anything Trump does is painted to look bad. So it doesn’t matter. So why should he listen to anyone against him.

The liberals painted Jeff Sessions was the grand wizard of the KKK when he was noninated. Using his non white grandkid as a prop, because all thebwoke people knew he secretly hated her at home. Now Trump doesn’t like him, he was the best AG and so smart and fair, and needs a statue built for him, because he’s an American hero.

Same thing with John McCain, he was leading white nationalist to get himself elected. He hates trump, his funeral became a circle jerk.

Two years, if you cannot find Russian collusion, either there wasn’t any or the team looking for it is incomparably and should be fired!!

The entire Mueller investigation was based on the premise of a "dossier" so this is "fruit from the poisoned tree", in my opinion and should have been shut down once it was identified that the FISA court was manipulated by a corrupt FBI and DOJ under Obama.

It is easy to tell when Trump supporters know Trump is up to something fishy. When Trump supporters start attacking facts and say things like "Orange Man bad" or "Reeeeeee" or "Garbage" but provide no actual defense.

Do you guys not see how obvious this tactic actually is? You have no real defense so you attempt to discredit the messenger. Sad.

No,
It's apparent that Mueller was appointed for no other reason than to find anything to stick to Trump. Which he has failed at, miserably.
So anything that leads to ending the farce is a positive development.

Though I find it hilarious that despite all the well written informative posts that completely debunk your garbage thread, you chose to take the bait of my obviously trolling comment.

Your threads are garbage and you have no credibility.

You cannot win on this site. All the trumpettes will jump in a criticize you and laugh at your threads against trump. But only after the jump into the daily, sometimes multiple anti dem threads posted by one user... They jump into those and go woot woot and go team.

I bet not one of them has ever questioned the reason behind his/her daily postings yet always criticize yours.
