Justice Department Says Trump Has Power to Name Whitaker

According to Reuters, the U.S. Justice Department defended the legality of President Donald Trump’s appointment of Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker on Wednesday.

The department said the president has the authority to name a replacement for the fired Jeff Sessions outside of the department’s line of succession.

Critics have accused Trump of overstepping his constitutional authority and breaking federal law in his appointment of Whitaker last week.
