Nadler: Whitaker’s Appointment Is ‘Illegal’
BERMAN: "The Office of Legal Counsel in the Justice Department has said now, they came out with a ruling that the appointment of Matt Whitaker as acting attorney general, they say it is legal."
NADLER: “Well the Office of Legal Counsel is there to — works for the president. And they will say whatever he wants. But constitutional experts, both Democratic and Republican, are pretty, not unanimous, but pretty overwhelming that the appointment is illegal because of Mr. Whitaker was not confirmed by the Senate. The OLC reaches back to 1966 case, which seems completely not relevant. So I think his appointment is illegal, and that will be tested in court.”
