Now Trump's AG can decide who to prosecute and not to prosecute the way Holder and Lynch did!

Whitaker's only duty is to do exactly what he believes needs to be done with zero consideration for politics and 100% consideration for justice and the nation. If Mueller has been using coersion, intimidating witnesses, abusing or exceeding his authority, then Whitaker needs to look at what information Mueller has and determine if it is time to end the investigation. Whitaker knows what authority the president has and is siding with the fact that Trump deciding policy and direction is not collusion. It's not like the Russians gave a Trump $145 million "donation" for uranium, nor did Trump hire any foreign spies. How is it the Dems can't see their own corruption? If Rosenstein was not corrupted by his huge involvement in Comey's firing and did not recuse himself, why should Whitaker recuse himself when he has no involvement? And if Strzok and Page could do their job and not be bias, why can't Whitaker. And don't say Trump fired them for bias. The FBI fired them for leaking and lying.

No one is going to appoint a guy who offered to wear a wire on the President Attorney General. That's ridiculous. Whitaker is not going to recuse himself either, and the Soros funded sewer rats are justified in their terror. The new AG has not come to shut down Mueller, but to start a blizzard of investigations of his own. That will be coordinated with the release of FISA materials, and the slow crucifixion of Rod Rosenstein for his part in a coup attempt. The Democrats are right to be afraid of Whitaker.

When Mueller makes his report, the report will say Trump is Innocent of any Collusion. The Democrats will go wild and not accept the report and accuse the Republican Muller of Collusion with Trump to impeded the Investigation. They will then launch another investigation into Muller, Trump, Pence then try to impeach them all and make Nancy Pelosi President because she will be 3rd in line to the President. Civil War will then follow.... Locked and Loaded....

Here is what a swamp looks like folks. Whitaker was waiting off-set at CNN in June 2017 when he and another guest struck up a conversation. The two men, both former Justice Department officials, talked about work and family. The fellow guest, St. John’s University law professor John Q. Barrett, recalls asking Whitaker what had prompted him to go on television to discuss Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation of Russian election meddling. “I hope this will help me get noticed,” Barrett recalled Whitaker telling him. In comments around that time, Whitaker said Mueller’s probe had gone too far, and on one CNN appearance he suggested that cutting funding to the investigation could hobble Mueller. Barrett, in an interview and in remarks on Twitter, recalled Whitaker saying that he hoped his appearances would generate attention so that President Trump would appoint him a federal judge in his home state of Iowa. Whitaker is definitely a compromised Trump stooge, who has absolutely zero intentions of upholding the law with integrity. He does however have every intention of helping Trump obstruct justice.

How can you tell that Trump definitely knows Matt Whitaker?  It's by how many times he emphasizes that he doesn't know Matt Whitaker. Matt Whitaker is clearly the type of person that's willing to tarnish his name and future career,  for an undeserving con-man like Trump. Trump has clearly conned Whitaker into helping him obstruct justice. And this is what Trump does. He doesn't see others around him as people, he sees them as instruments to be used and manipulated. These unwitting instruments will be tricked into believing that they are friends with trump. They never realize, until it's too late,  that Trump is a complete sociopath, and sociopaths don't have friends.  He will simply use them to help advance his his own unethical, criminal, amoral, and self-serving goals. And once you've outlived your usefulness, or you have simply failed to deliver on the things he desperately needs to survive, you will find yourself being ridiculed, and insulted by him, and then being tossed under the bus.  If you want to know what happens to people who foolishly cozy up to Trump, look no further than Sessions, Cohen, Manafort, Gates, Reince Priebus, Spicer,  Hope Hicks,  Flynn, Bannon, Papadopoulos, Mooch,...whew. I'm exhausted. Did I leave anyone out?

The Republicans only believe Mueller is about to wrap up because they are hoping to use Whitaker to shut him down. It has always been the long game that once Sessions is gone the opportunity would arise to interfere with and undermine the investigation. The only question is are they dumb enough to do it? Oh yes. Yes they are.
