Matt Whitaker Leaves Justice Department

The former acting Attorney General is out after a short tenure.

Saturday was the last day at the Department of Justice for acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, according to a Monday report.

“Former acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker has left the Department of Justice,” according to The Hill. “It is unclear where Whitaker might go, including whether he might seek another role in the Trump administration.”

A former U.S. attorney in the state of Iowa, Whitaker was Chief of Staff to U.S. Attorney General Jefferson B. Sessions until November, when he took over Sessions’ post. Sessions resigned in disgrace at the request of President Donald J. Trump after his cowardice in dealing with Special Counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s Russian “collusion” probe finally reached a boiling point.

“Whitaker’s departure comes less than three weeks after Bill Barr was confirmed as Trump’s next attorney general,” The Hill said. “Barr was widely expected to bring new blood to top leadership roles in the department, raising questions about Whitaker’s tenure.”

Whitaker made a mockery of the goofballs on the House Judiciary Committee during a hearing after being accused of interfering with Mueller’s investigation. At the end of January, Whitaker told the media that Mueller’s investigation should be wrapping up after finding no collusion despite two years of investigating.

“House Judiciary Chairman Jerold Nadler (D-N.Y.) said last week that Whitaker would return to clarify his testimony before the committee voluntarily, after alleging that his answers were ‘unsatisfactory, incomplete or contradicted by other evidence,'” the report said.

Chuck Schumer Threatens Supreme Court Justices: “You Will Pay the Price”

Chilling language.

Published

on

Chuck Schumer outright threatened two Supreme Court Justices when speaking at a pro-abortion event on Wednesday, using vengeful and vindictive language when discussing recent pro-life court case rulings reached by the court.

Watch here:

I want to tell you, Gorsuch, Kavanaugh…. You have unleashed the whirlwind, and you will pay the price! You won’t know what hit you if you go forward with these awful decisions.

Such rhetoric might be expected in one of Kim Jong Un’s regular missive of threats against the United States. But it’s shocking to hear a sitting Senate Majority Leader slam nonpartisan Supreme Court Justices in such a bold fashion, totally disregarding the court’s traditional independence from everyday politics.

The rally by a pro-abortion group was being held in advance of an expected court ruling on a Louisiana abortion law. The law requires abortionists to have admitting privileges at state hospitals.

Republican legislators slammed Schumer for his irresponsible and threatening rhetoric at the abortion rally after footage of his language was seen on Twitter.

Schumer may have been alluding to potential Democratic plans to impeach Kavanaugh, and possibly even Gorsuch, removing them from the Supreme Court. The Court’s now conservative majority has placed a major stumbling block in the way of the Left’s preferred strategy of seizing power through judicial activism.

Schumer’s unprecedented language, especially coming from a senior party official who should remain level-headed, demonstrates the Democratic Party’s willing to cast aside all formal norms of federal politics and government. They’re willing to do whatever it takes in order to get their way.
