“The president’s dismissal of Attorney General Sessions, and his appointment of Whitaker, who is a complete political lackey, is a real threat to the integrity of that investigation,” Nadler told Jake Tapper.
“We will subpoena…Mr. Whitaker,” he added.
According to the Washington Post, Whitaker currently has no intention of recusing himself from supervising the investigation.
Before becoming Sessions’ chief of staff at the DOJ in 2017, Whitaker was a conservative commentator for CNN, where he wrote an op-ed in August 2017 entitled “Mueller’s Investigation of Trump Is Going Too Far.”
Whitaker, the Democrats noted, also has close ties with former Trump campaign chairman Sam Clovis, a grand jury witness in the Mueller probe, having served on Clovis’s campaign to be Iowa’s state treasurer in 2014.
“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,” wrote the lawmakers.
