I’m not sure how good Whitaker is going to be as an AG, but it’s patently obvious that the Democrats are extremely nervous that there’s someone in that office who won’t recuse themselves from doing the job at hand.
They are being absurd. There are more reasons for Rod and Mueller to recuse than for Whitaker. I swear I don’t understand why there isn’t a 2nd Special Counsel appointed to investigate the intelligence agencies and other candidates involved in the 2016 elections under the exact same pretext as Mueller’s mandate. There are piles of evidence of collusion and meddling in the elections, but none of it that I know of points to Trump.
