There’s another thread that says Whitaker used to work for CNN.
"I think it would be a real red flag," Matthew Whitaker, executive director of the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, or FACT, told Fox News, in reference to the legal defense. He suggested having a single lawyer would help the four Clinton aides align their stories for FBI interviews.
Matthew Whitaker, the former U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa under President George W. Bush, said there is growing public evidence that laws were broken. "Based on what we know in the public record, I think there are some serious legal violations," said Whitaker. "There's got to be more that we don't know. I think that could be really incriminating evidence, if it's like anything we've already seen." Whitaker, who runs the Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust, a watchdog group that has been critical of Clinton, said the decision about whether to pursue a criminal case will ultimately depend on the Department of Justice. But he said the Fox News report on Monday about expansion of the FBI investigation puts more pressure on that department to take the investigation seriously. "I think the effect is it puts some pressure on the Department of Justice to not sweep this under the rug, to otherwise ignore inconvenient facts for secretary Clinton," said Whitaker. ---- Former U.S. Attorneys Predict Criminal Charges in FBIâs Probe of Clinton Server Washington Free Beacon ^ | 1-15-16 | Alana Goodman
