Much of America was extremely disturbed at the news that Donald Trump had gotten his Attorney General Jeff Sessions to resign, and was even more horrified to realize that Sessions would be replaced by acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker, as there are legitimate fears that Whitaker will try to shut down the Russian investigation being done by Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
We have every right to be worried about what Whitaker means for Mueller’s investigation, as previous comments from Whitaker are being revealed — and show that Whitaker has repeatedly denied collusion and seems hell-bent on protecting Trump. The Daily Beast has uncovered an interview Whitaker gave on right-wing radio show Wilkow Majority, where he had been very open about his feelings on the Russia probe and “the truth” — which, in his eyes, is that there is no collusion between Trump and Russia. Whitaker said:
The truth is there was no collusion with the Russians and the Trump campaign.”
Whitaker has also expressed hatred for Democrats and Liberals, which was clear from his comments in a 2017 video that was uploaded to YouTube during his time as Executive Director of the Foundation for Accountability & Civic Trust. Whitaker said:
There was interference by the Russians into the election, but that is not collusion with the campaign. That’s where the left seems to be just combining those two issues.
The last thing they want right now is the truth to come out, and the fact that there’s not a single piece of evidence that demonstrates that the Trump campaign had any illegal or even improper relationships with the Russians. It’s that simple.”
The majority of Whitaker’s media appearances focused on the promotion of one argument: Liberals in government are working to undermine Americans in a variety of troubling and unproven ways. And no one is a bigger threat than Mueller.”
It’s no coincidence that Whitaker is in this position right now – Trump is doing everything he can to escape Mueller. You can listen to Whitaker’s comments below:
