Trump Is Already Unloading On Acting AG Matt Whitaker

CNN reports that at least twice in the past two weeks, President Donald Trump has vented to his acting attorney general, angered by federal prosecutors who referenced the President's actions in crimes his former lawyer Michael Cohen pleaded guilty to.

Sources say Trump was frustrated that prosecutors Matt Whitaker oversees filed charges that put Trump in a bad light.

None of the sources suggested that the President directed Whitaker to stop the investigation.

Rather, they allege Trump lashed out at what he felt was an unfair situation.

The first known instance took place when Cohen pleaded guilty November 29 to lying to Congress about a proposed Trump Tower project in Moscow.

Whitaker had only been on the job a few weeks following Trump's firing of Jeff Sessions.

The second instance was when prosecutors in Manhattan officially implicated the President in a hush-money scheme to buy the silence of women around the 2016 campaign.

Trump pressed Whitaker on why more wasn't being done to control prosecutors in New York who brought the charges in the first place.
