Audible gasps as Matthew Whitaker clashes with chairman

Articles Blog


I’ve repeatedly tried to work with your
office first and delaying the hearing until February and then in providing you
our questions in advance I did this because executive branch’s own rules
governing assertion of privilege which were issued by President Reagan and have
been followed ever since say that ultimately it is up to the president to
decide whether or not he wants to assert executive privilege you cannot repeat
forever that the president might want to assert privilege I’ve given you a fair
opportunity to prepare for the hearing and to and to speak with the White House
in advance so that we could avoid this fight in the first place but you don’t
appear to have done any of that the department’s failure to do its due
diligence here to me is deeply troubling I do not believe that issuing a subpoena
here would correct the problem but I’m going to give you the opportunity to
rectify the situation after today’s hearing we will attempt to reach an
accommodation with the Department to obtain answers to these questions as
part of that process I ask for your commitment to return for a deposition
before this committee and the following in the coming weeks under oath with an
understanding that the transcript will be released to the public as soon as
practicable thereafter any questions that are unanswered today require
consultation with the White House will be asked again at that proceeding and I
expect either a clean answer or a proper assertion of privilege claimed by the
president I would ask members on both sides of the aisle to make those
questions clear for the record so we know what must be addressed at the
future proceeding now in your capacity as acting Attorney General have you ever
been asked to approve any request or action to be taken by the special
counsel mr. Chairman I see that your five minutes is up and so we-we-we I am me I’m here voluntarily we
have agreed to five minute rounds and committee I think that’s a fine place to
end the five-minute rule the committee will end will come to
order I will point out that we didn’t enforce
the five-minute rule on an attorney acting Attorney General Whittaker we
will I understand mr. Rao was just saying
there might be a good breaking born at that or you know the the Attorney
General was in the middle of saying something a question answer the question
please regular order should I ask the
questioning okay in your capacity yes question let me let me just repeat the
question so because so people remember what we’re talking about in your
capacity as acting Attorney General have you ever been asked to approve any
request or action to be taken by the special counsel mr. Chairman I as the
acting Attorney General I am under the special councils rules I am the person
that is ultimately in charge of the investigation and I have exercised that
authority under these special counsels regulations of the Department of
Justice’s so I assume the answer is yes your order mr. Hewitt I assume the
answer is yes you haven’t asked an approval request to action and you’ve
said yes or no Kevin in other words mr. Chairman I want to be
very clear about what you’re asking me are you asking me if I have asked a
special counsel to do something regular order mr. chairman well I’m I’m asking
if I think my words were clear enough have you ever been asked to approve any
request to actually be taken by the special counsel last week you commented
on the status of the investigation saying the stating it was close to being
completed on quote this was said despite the fact you recognized just moments
before that it was ongoing stating quote I really am NOT going to talk about an
open and ongoing investigation otherwise close quote so all I’m asking you is
have you been asked to approve or disapprove a request or action to be
taken by the special counsel point of order mr. chairman I’ve asked the
question of order when the water is not in order until the
question is and we’re not operating under the five-minute rule anymore that
point of what the witness will answer the question I want to be very specific
about this mr. chairman because I think it’s gonna rely a lot of fears that have
existed among this committee among the legislative branch largely and maybe
amongst some American people we have followed the special counsels
regulations to a tee there has been no event no decision that
has required me to take any action and I have not interfered in any way with the
special counsels investigation very good thank you my time is expired and they
recognized the ranking member the gentleman gentleman from Georgia mr.
Collins Thank You mr. chairman again it is playing out exactly as we
thought this is my colleagues across the aisle when we had questions about the
FBI’s operation in investigations it was those stay away we don’t wanna get close
to mauler in fact the Chairman even said you know we is it no longer okay to wait
for Robert Miller well it’s no longer right they got you in front of them
right now so get ready this is all this is gonna be DOJ oversight and it is
someone’s gonna say for a second there is some things interesting here that you
did torn out in your opening statement that they do need addressing I think
there’s a lot of things whether it be voting rights issues whether be civil
rights issues and other things and I get that but I’m also going to deal with
something that is directly under your oversight provision mister acting
Attorney General and we’re gonna talk about but something I’ve written a
letter about and believe I believe that lying before this body or anybody is
wrong especially under oath and that’s not the issue but the issue is tactics
and I question is were you aware of Roger stones indictment before it became
public congressman Oetzi as you know a
important question it is also mr. stone is part of an ongoing investigation but
I have again been briefed on the special counsels investigation that would have
been a you know that would been considered a development that I would
have been briefed on and I was briefed on that

  1. I think it is hilarious how a typical liberal, skinny armed, sissy boy beta male wimp like Nadler is clearly scared to death of Whittaker, who is far bigger and clearly an alpha male. Look the leftist female wimp over Nadler's left shoulder, who looks like she is about to start crying. Leftist cowards like Nadler love trying to 'get' someone like Whittaker in a situation like this, because they know in an actual one on one confrontation, Nadler would sooner shit in his own pants than say a single word that might piss off Whittaker. Leftist pussies are so funny.

  2. Nadler is a freakish looking thing.
    5โ€™ 4โ€ 340 pounds before getting his stomach tied. Very disciplined person. Great leader.

  3. Is the acting AG the actor that played The Hulk in the most recent The Avengers movie?!…his neck is about the size of my waist…hahahahaha! Tough gentleman

  4. We Americans have become so prideful and self centered. We care more about worshiping the flag instead of the values it's suppose to stand for. We talk more about how great we are and how everyone (even our friends ) are "out to get us." We should be asking how a great country could help other countries become great too. God always punishes the arrogant. Always. (Proverbs 16:5). And we are about to be punished. We are about to lose a military engagement we should never be able to lose. And an ally will betray us. This is how you will know that God is angry with us. Obadiah 1:2-7

  5. ….and if you get cornered either say there is on ongoing investigation or they are a racist and question is dodged LOL.

  6. Do you ever ask yourself, why does CNN feel the need to place captions on top of the video? Could it be that they are in a panic that possible people might actually notice what the real facts are and CNN might lose it's influence? Hmmm…. Ya, I wonder.

  7. What a worthless corrupt POS this "needler fat boy" is !! This is what our tax-dollars are going for ? REALLY ???

  8. Thank you mr so & so for asking that question. I am ****** currently serving in the position of ****** and working out of ***** office although I reside in *******. That is a very good question that deserves an answer because alot of people are asking themselves the same exact question. In fact I have heard that question being asked numerous times over the course of the last few months and as I contemplate the gravity of that questions and perplexity of not only the answer but the question itself and the fact that it has been, and is still being asked brings to question why hasn't it been answered before now. It is the curious nature of all americans to ask themselves, their friends, their family and their coworkers and of course their representatives that very important question! With unveiling determination and ultimatlety their undeniable right to demand an answer regardless of of their opinion of the results of the answer so long as the response to the question is an answer in which the complete truth is revealed. Precaution must be taken before I proceed with any response to the question due to the precarious certainty and inevitability of negative actions taken by those that expected something different. In this great country of which we all love and strive to uphold the freedoms set forth by our founding fathers one must ask important questions like the one at hand and must never relinquish our absolute right to ask those involved for answers to our questions so we may examine their response and conclude in our own mind the release of the facts has satisfied and remained within the parameters of the question asked, for the reverence of our great nation and constitution by which every single person is gaurenteed the freedoms set forth in our doctrine and given to us by God almighty. So with great respect and gratitude, on behalf of the patriotic pupulace of the country and to a greater extent my district, all of my colleagues and my family I would again, like to thank you for asking me this very important question but unfortunately my time has expired.

  9. NADLER is the obese gastric bypass food addicted lame clown and evil fool. He is only doing anything he can to continue with his lies and fake accusations against President Trump and his people.

  10. The penguin from Batman with his crooked eyebrows are and crookedly actions are criminal he along with half of the leftist democrats and king pin Hillary need to be placed on their asses one by one in front of a grand jury and questioned for all of the treasonous acts they have each committed from false documents to colluding with three foreign governments to get a fake document to try and overthrow a doily elected President Trump who won the electoral vote by a large margin. These acts are treasonous along with FBI,CIA,NSA & STATE DEPARTMENT

  11. Looking at Whitaker it is obvious that he would like to ring the Penguins neck and he is struggling to control his disgust. I feel the same disgust for this process and the little jerk leading this communist style lynching.

  12. Whitaker is a classic dumbass bullying jock who gets away with his disrespect and threatening bulk of pork fat, beer, burgers, and bullshit and an arrogant attitude that marks him as a classic republican.

  13. Sleepy Leather face Nadler is afraid of sleeping on the job again like he did last month and sleepyhead Nadler needs a sleepy answer Uranium

  14. Looking people like me smart couldnโ€™t find them own self even in them family or friends because or jews hunting on peoples history an talent..

  15. That bald guy is curropt. Asked a direct question, with no room for misinterpretation, still asked to rephrase. Yeah, that's a time tactic, he's thinking about how he's going to lie. And after all that, still never answered the question.

  16. Fuck Nadler. He is so full of shit it's laughable. Political grandstanding. Sticking it up Nadler's ass….. priceless!

  17. ever notice how democrats have to read most of what they say and republicans don't? and if they're black, they read quite slowly

  18. He is 100 percent using Democrats tactics against them… look at how he never answers he looks at his papers he asks can you repeat that its hilarious

  19. Nadler is.a.dip.shit and a liar. He needs to be booted from his position and arrested for his involvement in the attempted coup of our elected president.

  20. Thank you Nadler and CNN for helping to secure Trump for 2020. Hopefully there will be jailtime for our countries traitors. a HUUUUGE suck it to CNN. you are shameful!

  21. Nadler, remember your little petty power trip to Candice Owens about calling a member of your committee stupid? She didn't, you are stupid and your members are too stupid to listen to their own witnesses. You disgust me you hypocritical little quiff. Go home and let someone who isn't senile and brain dead do that job. Know when you've lost at the least. I know you're used to getting what you want your whole life but enough is enough.
