https://www.vox.com/policy-and-politics/2018/11/9/18080656/m...Exclusive: Trump loyalist Matthew Whitaker was counseling the White House on investigating ClintonWhitaker advised the president on launching a new special counsel while working as chief of staff for Attorney General Jeff Sessions.But two other people with firsthand information about the matter told me that Whitaker, in his conversations with the president, presented himself as a vigorous supporter of Trump’s position and “committed to extract as much as he could from the Justice Department on the president’s behalf.”One administration official with knowledge of the matter told me: “Whitaker let it be known [in the White House] that he was on a team, and that was the president’s team.”
Now that most of the people with talent and integrity are gone, we will see more people who lack both qualities filling the vacancies.For me, Mattis is the alarm bell. When he goes, this administration will show its full hand.
