Taking to Twitter on Friday night, Rhode Island Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D) hinted that there will be an investigation into a donor who gifted the Judicial  Network with $18 million to steal the Supreme Court seat belonging to Merrick Garland.


As part of his observations on the Matt Whitaker hearing where he was confronted about a mysterious $1.2 million donation that funded his salary, Whitehouse said Democrats shouldn't stop there.

'Whitaker did political hit work for a front group called FACT that does not reveal its donors. Today he admitted that its donor was Donors Trust, an entity that hides the identity of right-wing donors. That means the unknown real donor hid behind two entities," Whitehouse tweeted.

"Double-layered deception? Who tries that hard to hide? Not anyone up to any good," he added.

Whitehouse then put conservatives on notice that he expects an investigation into the dark money that was used to fund a campaign to keep Judge Merrick Garland from even getting a hearing -- only to see his seat go to conservative Neil Gorsuch after Donald Trump was elected.

"Wait til we start digging out who the $18 Million donor was to the to stop Garland and get Gorsuch on the Court," he wrote before adding the warning:  "Follow the money...This ain’t over."
