WATCH: Rep. Swalwell on Matt Whitaker’s claim that abuse of power is not a crime: “If he was in Russia, if he was in China, if he was in some other countries that we don’t want to look like, he may be right. But it is a crime.” #inners
Speaking in defense of his former boss, Matt Whitaker, Trump's ex-acting attorney general said "abuse of power is not a crime."

"A masculine toilet"? What? I don't even know if I'm allowed to talk about this Matt Whitaker story on TV. I don't even know if I have the capability to *ask* about covering this story on TV without getting in trouble with HR.
Matt Whitaker’s appointment violates the Constitution, the DOJ succession statute and the rules of ethics, since he was appointed for the express purpose of interfering with Mueller's investigation. During Watergate, Republicans defended the rule of law. Will they now?
Non-rhetorical question: What is DOJ waiting for before it says whether Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker has met with DOJ ethics lawyers about him overseeing the Mueller investigation? Why would DOJ tell the public he is *going* to do that but then not say if/when he has?
