Matthew Whitaker very well might be an intelligent man. But he's not very good at answering questions to the press or to the House.

Being evasive to Congress isn't a great way to further one's career. One commentator said he's really interviewing for the next step in his careere which won't be as a political appointee.

Yea but it's a great way to approach a confirmation hearing. See any hearing on a supreme court nominee. They're largely filled with evasion and non-answers.

To his credit though, he's on his way out the door so it's surprising he'd agree to a public hearing.

I think he was afraid he'd be subpoenaed if he didn't.

Assuming that the quotes of his I read on twitter are accurate and not taken out of context, his is an arrogant SOB with a superiority complex.

The funniest lie was when he said he didn't know whether there were any foreign donations to his Foundation for Accountability and Civic Trust.

He was the only employee.:lol::lol::lol:

For those not watching, it's an absolute shit show. Nothing is getting accomplished. As expected.
Au Contraire. It is just the beginning of the process. Many more hearings will take place. This lays the initial foundation, by getting the acting AG's answers on the record. Sooner or later, someone is going to contradict one or more of those answers, which puts someone in jeopardy of being charged with lying to Congress. This is just the beginning of what will be a long slow torturous ordeal for dotard and his criminal syndicate. Wait until one of his kids is sitting in that seat.

Yea when you're the only employee and you get a $1.2M donation/salary from a secondary company, even if that company is basically a hub to collect donations, it reaks of corruption.

this is indeed what we are dealing with... supported by deplorables
During Friday’s House Committee hearing, Rep. Veronica Escobar (D-TX) spent a good deal of time trying to pry information from acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker about immigration policy and what the hell made-up crime information the president seemed to be working from. At the very end of her time, she asked this very simple question: “Did you ever create, direct the creation of, see, or become aware of the existence of any documents relating to pardoning of any individual?”

Whitaker looked down in a listening pose during the question, and paused for a small amount of time before answering the question: “I'm aware of documents relating to pardoning of individuals, yes.”
