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.
