Andrew Herman Comments on Possible Recusal of Acting AG Whitaker in the Wall Street Journal

"Trump Brushes Aside Questions About Mueller Probe"

Wall Street Journal

Andrew Herman commented on whether or not acting Attorney General Matthew Whitaker should be recused from the Mueller investigation based on his past comments on the investigation. "He's a political appointee, so I think there is a presumption that he is going to have a certain viewpoint," said Herman, who represents individuals in ethics and other investigations. Herman noted that requiring recusal from anyone who has stated an opinion and oversees such an investigation "is a rabbit hole."
