House Judiciary Dem, Republican clash over details of Whitaker testimony

Whitaker at Judiciary Comm. hearingThe  top Democrat and Republican on the House Judiciary panel are offering diverging interpretations of former Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker's closed-door testimony involving the Michael Cohen case.

Judiciary Chairman Jerrold Nadler (D-N.Y.) claims Whitaker "did not deny" that President Trump had called to talk to him about "personnel decisions" involving a federal investigation into hush money payments made to two women who allege they had affairs with President Trump.

“Mr. Whitaker did not deny that the president called him to discuss the Michael Cohen case and personnel decisions in the Southern District,” Nadler told reporters after questioning Whitaker behind closed doors for roughly two hours. He was referring to the Southern District of New York (SDNY), which has led an investigation into the payments.

The panel’s top Republican, Rep. Doug Collins (R-Ga.), said he had a far different takeaway.
