Top Democrat says Whitaker didn’t deny talking to Trump about Cohen in closed hearingHouse Judiciary Committee Chairman Jerry Nadler said former Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker contradicted previous testimony before the committee in a closed hearing on Tuesday. According to Nadler, Whitaker did not deny talking to President Trump about Michael Cohen.
"Unlike in the hearing room, Mr. Whitaker did not deny that the president called him to discuss Michael Cohen -- the Michael Cohen case, and personnel decisions in the Southern District," Nadler said Wednesday. Whitaker denied he had spoken to Mr. Trump about his former attorney, who is now cooperating with the special counsel's office, in testimony last month.
yeah. It is a big deal. But, it barely gets notice because of all the other big deals associated with the Trump administration.
