Toobin: Whitaker Is Political Choice Who Lacks ‘Stature’ And ‘Experience’ To Be AG

CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin criticized President Trump’s pick for acting attorney general, Matt Whitaker, Thursday morning, saying he lacks the “stature” and “experience” to be a legitimate choice.

“I mean, you know, with all respect to Mr. Whitaker, he is a person not with the stature, nor with the experience to be attorney general of the United States,” Toobin said. “He was briefly U.S. attorney in Des Moines, which is an honorable position, but it is not the kind of position that leads to this usually.”

“He was appointed to limit the Mueller investigation,” he concluded.
