According to Fox News legal commentator Andrew Napolitano stated that Matt Whitiaker is not legally qualified to become the acting Attorney General.


Napolitano, on "Fox & Friends," said Whitaker is not "legally qualified" to become acting attorney general.

"There’s only three ways a person can become acting attorney general," Napolitano said. "One, if you are the deputy attorney general — Rod Rosenstein — the president signs an executive order and makes you acting."

"Two is if you are already in the Department of Justice and have a job that requires Senate confirmation and you have received confirmation," Napolitano added. "That is not the case with Matt Whitaker because he’s the chief of staff. That does not require Senate confirmation."

Whitaker's most recent post was chief of staff to Sessions at the Justice Department.

"Three is a recess appointment, which is not relevant here because the Senate is not in recess," Napolitano continued.

"So with deference and respect to what the president’s trying to do — he has every right to have whoever he wants run the Justice Department — he has chosen someone who does not qualify under the law to be the acting attorney general," Napolitano added.


So in addition to the bias Whitaker has shown toward the Mueller investigation, he isn't even legally qualified for the job Trump appointed him to. But who cares about laws?

The Judge will obviously be called a sell out now.

Obviously, because the law must always be what Trump says it is.

If Trump were truly a very stable genius he'd ask the Judge to be Attorney General and get the Senate to confirm him.

Rumor is in my home state that our former governor, Fatty Boombah, may be in the running.

The only people as antiquated and dumb as sessions. Pamela Bondi, and Chris Christie, my lord even Lindsey Graham is better choice than those two. Be nice to have a libertarian like Napolitano who loves America and the constitution for a change of pace.


..maybe trump is looking into how to shut down some bridges when he can't get votes in Congress.

I wish he'd run for President.

He's one of the only people on Fox that I don't want to smash their skull in with a sledge hammer.

Heh, True Pundit is reporting today that Trump is floating Louis Freeh to replace Jess Sessions.
Freeh is a former FBI director who effing hates the Clintons.

Whitaker was confirmed a few years ago as a U.S. Attorney.

Wonder if that "qualifies" per Judge Nap ?

The only difference between the two is where their bias lays, and who they're willing to sell out/bolster.

The only difference is how they word their headlines.

Neither are breaking big stories, neither have true investigative journalism, neither challenge the status quo.

Both are entertainment corporate media.

Nope, he resigned from that post in 2009. He would need to be a currently appointed member of the DOJ.

Hell, even Larry King is dissing CNN these days. (Yesterday, he said "CNN stopped doing news a long time ago.") That's how pathetic they are.
