Acting AG Whitaker is before the House Judiciary Committee today in what appears to be another political show about Mueller.
And Whitaker isn’t playing along. He’s actually been quite feisty as he was questioned by the chairman, pushing back on questions and what not.
This is an example of his feistiness:
Video: After Nadler went on a rant and doing his best to represent his constituents at @CNN (look it up, his district includes @CNN), Whitaker informs him that his five minutes of questioning was up. #Boom pic.twitter.com/fxpKDq0PRE— Curtis Houck (@CurtisHouck) February 8, 2019
That’s hilarious. I don’t think I’ve ever heard a witness at a hearing point out that someone’s time has expired. Even Nadler had to laugh at that.
Clearly Whitaker is trying to hold the committee to their agreement and he’s not bashful about it at all.
He’s also already scolded the committee:
Whitaker, with nothing to lose, scolds the committee for not discussing issues Americans care about including violent crime, opioid crisis, religious liberty, etc. Now Nadler takes a break, lol.

In case you missed it, you can watch the hearing live here, as it will likely be going all day long.
