Whitaker Mocked For Sweating While Lying About the Mueller Probe

Acting attorney general Matthew Whitaker said Monday that special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe is “close to being completed.”

Whitaker told reporters at a press conference that he has been “fully briefed on the investigation.”

“I hope that we can get the report from Director Mueller as soon as possible,” he said.

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough said acting attorney general Matt Whitaker’s prediction that special counsel Robert Mueller was nearly finished was more wishful thinking than inside knowledge.

A visibly sweaty Whitaker surprised reporters Monday with a halting assurance that Mueller would soon conclude his investigation of President Donald Trump — who the “Morning Joe” host said must have pressured his attorney general to make the statement.

“Wow,” said co-host Mika Brzezinski.

Scarborough said Whitaker reminded him of Albert Brooks in “Broadcast News,” or himself in the early days of his TV career.

“Once you know you’re sweating on TV and you tell yourself stop sweating, guess what, it’s just like one of those showers at Comiskey Park,” Scarborough said.

He said the president and his advisers have repeatedly insisted Mueller was close to wrapping up the Russia investigation, but it’s continuing to roll along and hand up new indictments.

“We have been hearing from one yokel after another, and we even heard from (former Trump attorney) Ty Cobb back, I think, in 1873 that the Mueller investigation was going to be done, and they keep saying it’s going to be over,” Scarborough said. “This has all the classic markings of a frantic call from Donald Trump — an order, a scream.”

“I keep hearing Mueller’s over in February, they just busted Roger Stone,” he added. “I remember right before they get (Paul) Manafort, they say it’s going to be over in a couple weeks. No, you’re see to see what you go from Manafort first. They got Roger Stone, who says, ‘I’m not going to talk,’ to now, we’ll see, spring is in the air.”

Whitaker’s remarks were made just a few days after longtime Trump ally Roger Stone was indicted as part of Mueller’s probe. The indictment alleges that Stone made false statements, engaged in witness tampering and interfered with a congressional investigation. The indictment also claims that Trump campaign staff were directed to ask Stone what documents WikiLeaks had in its possession that could be damaging to the Clinton campaign. 

Almost every independent legal analysis of Stone’s indictment concluded that it shows that Robert Mueller is not close to ending his investigation, but rather is just beginning

to get much closer to the White House and the president’s family. Matthew Whitaker’s public display was embarrassing and shows that the acting attorney general is a lackey, saying and doing exactly what Donald Trump tells him to do.
