Blumenthal: Matt Whitaker Is Trump’s ‘Lackey’ and ‘Lap Dog’

‘Matt Whitaker lacks the key qualification which is approval of the Senate’

EXCERPT:

BLUMENTHAL: "We can win this case, we should win this case, we will win this case. Because what the President is doing is run around the Constitution, it’s the highest law of the land and it provides that he very simply cannot install a person like Matt Whitaker, who is his lackey and lap dog when the office really requires qualifications. And Matt Whitaker lacks the key qualification, which is approval by the Senate. He’s depriving us of doing our job, he’s depriving the American people of a system of checks and balances, which is designed precisely to protect against this kind of unqualified nominee."
