Why Trump’s Acting Attorney General Is Also Unconstitutional


My article earlier today argued that President Trump’s appointment of Matthew Whitaker to oversee the Mueller investigation is unethical and requires recusal.

Neal K. Katyal (acting solicitor general under President Barack Obama) and George T. Conway III (a litigator at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz in New York) make the case in the New York Times that the appointment is also unconstitutional.

The Appointments Clause of the Constitution, Article II, Section 2, Clause 2, states that “principal officers of the United States” must be nominated by the president and confirmed by the Senate under its “Advice and Consent” powers.
