The Provisional Justice Minister Matt Whitaker does not intend to stay away from the investigation that special prosecutor Robert Mueller is doing about possible Russian interference in the 2016 American election campaign.
That writes The Washington Post, relying on information from people in the immediate vicinity of Whitaker. These spokesmen also think that he will not approve any summons to Donald Trump’s address in this case.
Whitaker replaces the dismissed Jeff Sessions until his successor is found. According to CNN, Trump among others is thinking of Chris Christie, the former governor of New Jersey, or Pam Bondi, Attorney General of Florida. Both are loyal allies. The American news channel also reported Thursday that the Mueller team started writing the final report.
Sessions withdrew from Mueller’s research after being discredited by contacts with the Russian ambassador in the US. To underline the impartiality, he transferred the supervision to the second man in the department, Rod Rosenstein.
