    Now the Democrats are beginning to sweat. With Whitaker taking over and overseeing Rod R performance, the Democrats are afraid of what is going to be brought out and when the going gets rough they ask people to recluse themselves. Whitamer better not recluse himself and get to the bottom of the corruption in the Department of Justice. Also he should have double security because with the hatred and the mob attitude of the Democrats you never know what’s going to happen. Maybe Whitaker will help Trump declassify the information from Judicial Watch and we will know who the corrupt politicians are.

    Mueller should have recused himself at the outset of the investigation. Hillary was the root cause of all of this, and the investgation was created to detract justice against Hillary being carried out.
