Whi­taker has thoughts on Rus­sia probe

The News-Times - - OBITUARIES/NEWS -

Matthew Whi­taker has warned that Robert Mueller’s Rus­sia in­ves­ti­ga­tion risks “go­ing too far” and sup­ported lim­its on the pros­e­cu­tor’s power. Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump couldn’t agree more.

So the loy­alty-lov­ing Trump on Wed­nes­day dumped Jeff Ses­sions from the helm of the Jus­tice Depart­ment and re­placed him, for now, with the one­time col­lege foot­ball player and fed­eral pros­e­cu­tor. Un­like Ses­sions, who re­cused him­self from the Rus­sia in­ves­ti­ga­tion to Trump’s ev­er­last­ing fury, Whi­taker will over­see it.
