Acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker made an excellent play during his testimony to the House Judiciary Committee.
Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler was doing his best to ask the same question in multiple ways, trying to get some variation of the answer in order to contradict Whitaker.
The basis of Nadler’s questioning revolved arougn whether Whitaker had spoken to anyone regarding information in the Mueller investigation of the president.
Whitaker consistently stated that he had not spoken to the president or any other senior White House official regarding the investigation.
However has Nadler’s badgering continued, Whitaker expertly shut down the questioning by informing Nadler, ‘Mr. Chairman, I see that your 5 minutes are up.”
