The Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 Does Indicate AG Matthew Whitaker is Legal Interim Presidential Appointee


There really is no controversy about the legality of president Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker as interim U. S. attorney general because the Federal Vacancies Reform Act of 1998 (which president Clinton signed) provides that an interim replacement for a high level post (such as for U. S. attorney general) can be the assistant (Rosenstein) to the person gone (Sessions), or can be a political appointee, not approved by the Senate, who though is above the MS-15 pay level (Whitaker is) and has served in that department for over 90 days (Whitaker has), so the Democrats’ complaints with no legal basis are just hyperventilation, hot air, it’s time to put this supposed controversy to rest.
