Dershowitz: Rosenstein Should Be Recused From Russia Probe

House Democrats target Whitaker's involvement in 'scam' company

House Democrats are kicking off their investigations into the Trump administration by probing acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker's connections to a Florida company that was shut down by the Federal Trade Commission over what court documents called "a scam that has bilked thousands of consumers out of millions of dollars".

He also came after another favorite target: FAKE NEWS. "They won't even look at all of the bad acts and crimes on the other side", he said.

President Trump is turning the tables by claiming the only players involved in the Russian Federation collusion narrative are Democrats.

In Mr Trump's latest tweets, he describes Mr Mueller as "conflicted" and says that those involved in the long-running probe "are a disgrace to our nation". They still don't have it.

The main gate "was the target of air strikes... but the port is operating normally", the port's deputy director Yehya Sharafeddin told AFP by telephone.

He added, more attention should be brought to the leftist bias of tech giants like Facebook, Google and Twitter - arguing that's real collusion. "Why is he protecting Crooked Hillary, Comey, McCabe, Lisa Page & her lover, Peter S, and all of his friends on the other side?" he wrote, referring to fired Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, former anti-Trump agent Peter Strzok, and fired Deputy Director Andrew McCabe.

After that, he was appointed by Rod Rosenstein as the special counsel and Rosenstein was appointed by Trump and approved by the Republican Senate as well.

Complicating matters is Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY), who has outright rejected approving legislation that protects Robert Mueller's probe. In 2011, the Senate voted unanimously to extend Mueller's tenure for two more years.

House Democrats are launching an investigation into Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker's involvement in World Patent Marketing, where he served as a paid adviser for the Florida company shut down by a federal judge earlier this year and fined nearly $26 million for allegedly running an invention-promotion scam. He returned Sunday from a trip to Paris to face criticism for his decision to skip a solemn visit to an American cemetery in France, part of events to mark 100 years since the end of World War I.
