Earlier this week, Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker held a press conference to announce indictments against a Chinese telecom firm.
In the middle of this briefing to reporters, Whitaker veered off-topic to mention that he "has been briefed" on the status of Special Counsel Bob
Mueller's Russian Interference investigation. He also said he believed "the investigation is nearing its end".
Because Whitaker had openly criticized aspects of the Mueller investigation before becoming the AAG, those two statements caused liberal media outlets
like CNN and MSNBC to go ballistic.
Even though Matthew Whitaker is now officially Bob Mueller's boss, Democrats & MSM don't want him interacting with Mueller's investigation in any way.
They believe his statement that the investigation is nearing its end, was Whitaker publicly exerting pressure on Bob Mueller to finish his fishing
expedition ASAP, before he could reel in the biggest fish in the ocean... President Donald J. Trump.
After taking a day to calm down, a few media outlets listened to Matthew Whitaker's press briefing again. And, you guessed it, they heard something
else to totally freak-out about! Here it is:
"I am comfortable that the decisions that were made (by Bob Mueller) are going to be reviewed through the various means we have", Whitaker
Sen. Christopher A. Coons (D-Del.) called it “chilling” to consider that Whitaker may review the Mueller report.
Conservative political analyst Bill Kristol used the word “alarming.”
Former solicitor general Neal Katyal called it “unconstitutional” and “unwise,” and predicted that such a review would “ultimately undo”
“It is absolutely unforgivable that Whitaker is in any position to know anything about the Mueller investigation, let alone claim to be
He has just about as much business doing that as a fox does in a henhouse!” Katyal tweeted.

I wonder what Mueller Decisions are "going to be reviewed" by the Department of Justice, and what the reason will be for reviewing them?
Even though the permanent Attorney General (William Barr) is expected to be confirmed for that position by the Senate during the second week of
February, Democrats in the U.S. House will grill outgoing AAG Matthew Whitaker (in open session) on Friday Feb 8th. Panic-induced desperation is
causing Democrats in Congress to abandon their rational/logical thought processes.
