Trump’s pick to replace former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, Acting AG Matt Whitaker faces a new lawsuit brought by the State of Maryland. The suit is suing to get a Federal Judge to immediately remove Whitaker as AG, saying his appointment was unlawful and asking that the Judge declare Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein as Acting AG. Watergate Prosecutor Nick Akerman breaks down why he thinks the suit has merit and slams Whitaker as a “low-level assistant” who needs Senate approval.
