Trump Is Now Panicking That Whitaker Will Turn On Him
On Thursday night, a CNN panel hosted by Wolf Blitzer said that Donald Trump is in favor of acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker not testifying in front of Congress because of the potentially bad “optics” it could create.
“I think the president thinks if Whitaker does go, he wants him to look good. If he goes and is getting grilled by these Democrats, the president won’t look favorably upon that,” CNN reporter Katlin Collins said.
CNN contributor Bianna Golodryga explained that Whitaker looked “uncomfortable” in the past while answering questions about the Russia investigation.
“This is an optics driven administration and this could be a stall tactic by Whitaker,” Golodryga said. “Remember how uncomfortable he was when asked questions about the Mueller investigation? He started sweating profusely and did not know how to answer questions directly.”
“If that was a taste of what could possibly come, this could be an administration and even a Justice Department that doesn’t want to see something like that repeated,” she said.
