Trump denies knowing the man he appointed as the nation's top law enforcement official
During an impromptu press conference Friday before leaving for Paris, President Donald Trump put some distance between himself and Matt Whitaker, the newly appointed acting attorney general who now oversees special counsel Robert Mueller's probe into Russian election meddling and any ties to Trump associates. Mr. Trump denied knowing Whitaker, the man he just appointed as the nation's top law enforcement official.
