Trump defends Matt Whitaker, compares him to Robert Mueller

President Trump on Sunday continued to defend Matt Whitaker, his controversial pick to lead the Justice Department, with a wildly misleading comparison to special counsel Robert Mueller.

The president attacked Rep. Adam Schiff (D-Calif.), referring to him as “little Adam Schitt,” for calling out the fact that Whitaker’s appointment as acting attorney general was not confirmed by the Senate ― an omission many legal experts have described as unconstitutional.
