This probably isn’t the Christmas present that Democrats were looking for. Acting Attorney General Matthew “The Hammer” Whitaker has been approved to oversee Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russian Collusion Investigation.
Whitaker, who has come under fire by Democrats for his anti Hillary Clinton stance in the past, is now 100% in control of the Russia Investigation.
The acting Attorney General was appointed to the position when President Trump asked then acting AG Jeff Sessions to step down.

Justice Department ethics officials had been vetting Whitaker to make sure there was no special interests in him overseeing Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
Whitaker has wrote many things on social media, including saying that he would have prosecuted then Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. This of course had Democrats in an uproar, as they didn’t think he could be fair and balanced.
Today is a major win for President Trump and his administration. It’s been a rough week for the President with the GOP Congress again dropping the ball on the Wall, and House/Senate Democrats refusing to secure our Nation’s southern border.
