I mean it's not like Mueller is some amateur, I'm sure he's been preparing for this possibility.

 

Just a low level covfefe boy.

even if Trump/acting AG or anyone else ends the Mueller investigation the House can just start it up again with all the same investigators in January 

Sort of. Far easier to exert executive privilege when it isn’t the executive doing the investigation.

If Mueller delivers his report and materials to Congress they can just hand it back to him when they rehire him.

 

I don’t think he can. He works under the direction of the executive.

Two months feels so far away now. :(

 

Hopefully Sessions is now interviewed by Mueller though, maybe he knows things. 

 

 

That would actually be not a bad outcome given the spectrum of possibilities here. It stalls things for a couple of months, but it keeps everything intact until the new House is sworn in.

Shut up, Chuck.

I’m sure he will cut a deal for 30 more court vacancies for Trump if the acting AG recuses himself.

Not sure if I should use the laughing or guillotine reaction. Can we get a guillotine chopping off a laughing face reaction?

Until he is fired, Rod is still in charge of the Mueller investigation. Whitaker isn't in charge of the DOJ until he is confirmed, correct? Or is he acting AG right now until he is confirmed? My real question is if Whitaker can fire Rod.

Is he stippling by McDonald's to pick up some fish delights?

I'm reading that this isn't true, that he would have to be confirmed in order to oversee Mueller.

 

It's very much true.

Whitaker doesn't need to be confirmed, he's the Acting right now. His power might be limited though. The Vacancy Act might not apply since Sessions wrote his letter in a way that he got fired.

I'd have to dig it up, but I remember reading a Lawfare analysis that said Senate confirmation is required.

@SFLUFAN What I meant is that I'm reading that it isn't true that an acting (but not confirmed) AG can oversee the Mueller investigation. Not saying it's true, just what I've read.

Read this guy.
