‘Mueller reports to Whitaker you nitwit’: Adam Schiff gets seriously triggered by AG’s Mueller probe update

Rep. Adam Schiff was torched after failing to grasp the governmental chain of command in the Justice Department.

The California Democrat was schooled after he slammed acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker for updating the status of special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia investigation.

 

Whitaker told reporters he had been “fully briefed” on Mueller’s investigation during a Department of Justice news conference on Monday.

“The investigation is, I think, close to being completed, and I hope that we can get the report from director Mueller as soon we — as possible,” Whitaker, who stepped into his role in November after Attorney General Jeff Sessions resigned at the president’s request.

“I have been fully briefed on the investigation, and I look forward to director Mueller delivering the report, and I really am not going to talk about an open and ongoing investigation otherwise,” Whitaker added.

His remarks apparently set off Schiff who was appalled that Whitaker would dare to speak for the special counsel.

The irony and lack of self-awareness were deafening.

The Democrat was not alone, however, as it seems many on the left were equally flustered by Whitaker.

The scramble to call for Whitaker to recuse himself was immediate as were the ridiculous comments like Schiff’s that the acting attorney general should not be involved with Mueller.

Seems Democrats may not actually want the investigation to come to an end.

Thankfully there was a coalition of Twitter users who were able to deliver a civics lesson to the lawmakers and other clueless liberals.
