Fox News Senior Judicial Analyst Judge Andrew Napolitano criticized the DOJ for upholding Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker’s appointment.
Napolitano stated, “I was very disappointed to see the lawyers who work for Matthew Whitaker go back to 1866 and look for a precedent there to decide whether or not he was lawfully appointed. I don’t care what happened in 1866. Because the Congress changed the law in the 1960s, and said whoever runs the Justice Department has to be nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate. Because we put too much power in their hands.”
