Sen. Collins 'very concerned' about Whitaker's appointment

Sen. Collins 'very concerned' about Whitaker's appointment

"Mr Whitaker's relationship with Mr Clovis, who is a grand jury witness in the special counsel investigation, as well as Mr Whitaker's other entanglements, raise additional concerns about his ability to supervise the investigation independently and impartially", the letter said.

He said he was speaking only for himself and he hoped Republicans might join as plaintiffs if a lawsuit goes forward.

Kobach is a pro-life conservative who unsuccessfully ran for governor of Kansas this year, and Brown is a pro-life judicial originalist who was targeted by Democrat attacks when President George W. Bush appointed her to the D.C. Court of Appeals in 2005.

But while those same loyal Democratic voters helped elect more than a dozen House members, typically with 90 percent of the vote, they can not help a Democrat running for a state house seat in Alpena or Escanaba, Lupher said.

Though Democrats will have a majority in the House, Neal said he was mindful of the reality that Republicans still control the Senate and Trump has a presidential veto. Whitaker felt Mueller would focus on his job, regardless. He said he's had conversations with United States Trade Representative Robert Lighthizer, who he said shares many of his views on how to enforce the treaty. "The appointment of Mr. Whitaker is further clouded by unresolved constitutional questions about the legality of such an action". "I feel certain he will make an outstanding Acting Attorney General!". The Democrats cited Whitaker's past public statements, which have included an op-ed article in which he said Mueller would be straying outside his mandate if he investigated President Donald Trump's family finances and a talk radio interview in which he maintained there was no evidence of collusion between the Russian Federation and the Trump campaign during the 2016 election.

News of Mueller's team working up a final report is not entirely unexpected.

Whitaker has made no public comment since being named, but he has previously shown distinct skepticism about the probe, including calling for its scope to be curtailed.

It was not clear if Mai Abdullah would be doing similar and making a different version of the Salah sculpture. It depicts the striker with his arms out wide in the goal-scoring celebration he is known for.

While some speculated the "46" in his Twitter handle MattWhitaker46 referred to a future run at president-Trump is the 45th US president-it ostensibly refers to his jersey number, 46, when he played with the Iowa Hawkeyes football team from 1989 to 1982.

"I don't know Matt Whitaker", Trump told reporters at the White House before leaving on a trip to France.

Last month, Trump said on the Fox News program Fox and Friends, "Matt Whitaker's a great guy".

In the end, FTC investigators did not obtain evidence or internal communications showing Whitaker knew about the company's phony promises to help investors patent and market their ideas, according to people with knowledge of the case.

Sessions has long drawn Trump's ire for recusing himself from the Russian Federation investigation.

"Sorry, I heard gays in cages and went somewhere insane", Pence responded.

When asked about the probe in a separate interview on ABC's This Week, Conway said she doubted President Donald Trump would ask Whitaker to shut down the investigation "because it would prolong it", adding she didn't think either a Democratic or Republican Congress would "allow that".
