Whitaker Should Recuse

Your DGB for today is to call for Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker’s immediate recusal from the Mueller investigation.

Trump, in a particularly Trumpian move, fired racist Keebler elf Jeff Sessions before the ink had even dried on our ballot bubbles. He’s been frothing at the mouth to fire Sessions ever since Sessions recused himself from overseeing an investigation into the very campaign he was a part of. It was actually the right and ethical move, but Trump doesn’t care about that. After he canned Sessions, Trump made yet another problematic appointment - Matthew Whitaker to Acting AG. Whitaker ALSO has ethical issues that prevent him from being the right person to oversee the Mueller investigation. In this case, his conflicts of interest include his close ties to Sam Clovis (a key witness) and his previous statements about how to starve the special counsel of funds.

Clearly, he must also recuse himself. Let’s flood the Dept. of Justice with Americans calling for him to do just that. Call the DoJ at (401) 709-5000 and register your concerns.
