“Days after appointing Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general and assuring the country that he was capable replacement for the ousted Jeff Sessions, President Trump Friday claimed not to know his new Justice Department chief,” USA Today reports.
Said Trump: “I don’t know Matt Whitaker. Matt Whitaker has a great reputation, and that’s what I wanted.”
He added: “When Sessions left, what I did, very simply, is take a man who worked for Sessions. He’s a highly respected man, especially by law enforcement. And I think he’s going to do a great job.”Save to Favorites
