Kellyanne’s Husband Just Demolished Trump For Hiring Whitaker As AG, Calls It Unconstitutional
White House adviser Kellyanne Conway’s husband, George Conway, wrote a scorching editorial in the New York Times this week after learning that Donald Trump had fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and hired one of his loyalists Matthew Whitaker/
Conway has been a heavy critic of Trump, despite his wife working for the president. In the op-ed written with Democratic attorney Neal Katyal, Conway says that Whitaker is not legally qualified to be appointed as acting AG.
In fact, Conway and Katyal think that the appointment of Whitaker is straight-up unconstitutional.
“The flaw in the appointment of Mr. Whitaker, who was Mr. Sessions’s chief of staff at the Justice Department, runs much deeper,” they write. “It defies one of the explicit checks and balances set out in the Constitution, a provision designed to protect us all against the centralization of government power.”
“We cannot tolerate such an evasion of the Constitution’s very explicit, textually precise design. Senate confirmation exists for a simple, and good, reason,” they continued. “Constitutionally, Matthew Whitaker is a nobody. His job as Mr. Sessions’s chief of staff did not require Senate confirmation… For the president to install Mr. Whitaker as our chief law enforcement officer is to betray the entire structure of our charter document.”
