Jay Bookman suggests that, as regards his selecting Mark Whitaker as “acting Attorney-General,” Donald Trump knew exactly what he was doing. A nugget:

Instead, Trump installed Whitaker as head of the U.S. Department of Justice because he sees Whitaker for what he is, a political hack who will do the president’s bidding.
