Ex-DOJ spokesperson: Every senior Justice official ‘must step down’ if Whitaker doesn’t recuse himself from Mueller probe

Published

on

The former chief spokesperson for the Department of Justice said “every senior official” at DOJ has an obligation to resign if Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker does not recuse himself from special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

Matt Miller served as director of the office of public affairs for the Justice Department and joined MSNBC’s “Deadline: White House” with Nicolle Wallace on Wednesday.

“I think anyone that cares about the rule of law in this country — whether they are Republican, Democratic, or independent — now is the time to make your voices heard,” Miller suggested.

“You used to advise the Attorney General,” host Nicolle Wallace noted. “How would you advise the Deputy Attorney General, right now, today. What should Rod Rosenstein do?”

Miller said he would suggest Rosenstein wait to see if Whitaker would recuse himself.

“But if it’s clear he’s just there to shut this down, I think Rod Rosenstein and every senior official have an obligation to step down and make it exactly clear the Department of Justice is being abused and is being taken over by the White House and it cannot stand,” he concluded.

‘He should be hospitalized’: Internet stunned after Trump goes off on completely incoherent Mt Rushmore rant

Published

on

President Donald Trump was asked on Tuesday whether his face should appear on Mount Rushmore along with other major American presidents.

“If I answer that question yes, I will end up with such bad publicity,” Trump told The Hill, before pivoting to an incoherent rant about fireworks.

The president's rambling shocked many people on Twitter:

Apart from Trump’s apparent inability to string together coherent English sentences on the fly, note also the sheer ignorance and apathy toward the idea that there might be legitimate reasons why fireworks are not detonated around the Black Hills. https://t.co/jja2XD19Mw

 ENOUGH IS ENOUGH 

Trump endorses killing journalists, like Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi. Online ad networks are now targeting sites that cover acts of violence against dissidents, LGBTQ people and people of color.
