Trump: ‘I Did Not Know’ About Whitaker’s Mueller Probe Bias, But ‘He’s Right’

President Donald Trump defended his choice to make Jeff Sessions’ former chief of staff Matt Whitaker acting attorney general in an interview taped Friday, saying Whitaker’s open opposition to special counsel Robert Mueller’s probe didn’t impact his choice.

“I did not know he took views on the Mueller investigation as such,” Trump claimed of Whitaker.

“And when you found that out?” Fox News Sunday’s Chris Wallace asked.

“I don’t think it had any effect,” Trump said.
