I hope it works. A brief on the hearing from The Post:
Acting attorney general Matthew G. Whitaker is scheduled to appear Friday morning before the House Judiciary Committee — a high-stakes confrontation that was nearly canceled a day earlier in a standoff with Democratic lawmakers.
Lawmakers are expected to grill him about his decision not to recuse from overseeing special counsel Robert S. Mueller III’s investigation of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential campaign. They also plan to ask questions about Whitaker’s past businesses and his decision-making at the department since his appointment by President Trump in November.
Hope the Capitol maintenance crews finished digging the trenches and canals leading to the Flop Sweat Reservoir last night!
Do y’all expect fireworks from this committee hearing? I’m keeping my expectations low. Whitaker will be a footnote next week. But when Trump’s low-quality hires come before a committee, you never know — maybe he’ll blurt out all sorts of bald-faced lies and incriminating material.
