Trump-appointed acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker went through the ringer in a confirmation hearing before congress. His smug, arrogant attitude and smart aleck answers to many of the questions led many to compare it to the angry, entitled, sniveling Brett Kavanaugh from his hearing last fall.
But there are actually lots of other reasons Whitaker is unfit for the job. For instance, his relationship with Donald Trump and the large likelihood that he would aid the corruption coming from the White House.
One prime example of this is the fact that he once said that he didn’t want to live in a country where Trump’s finances would be the subject of an investigation, as uncovered by The Democratic Coalition:
