How Long Will Whitaker Remain AG

Senate Judiciary Committee member John Kennedy (R-LA) told CBS he thinks that Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker won’t hold the position for very long and the President “will very shortly announce a permanent nominee.”

Kennedy stated, “I think he will be there for a short while. I think the president will very shortly announce a permanent nominee. In the interim, I think everybody, including my Democratic friends, ought to give him a chance to find the men’s room before they try to beat him half to death.”

Kennedy also explained that he butted heads with Whitaker’s views on Marbury v. Madison.
