Democrats are wasting no time announcing their priorities when they take over the House of Representatives come January.
No. 1 on their agenda is challenging acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker, who's been in the headlines ever since President Donald Trump tapped him to temporarily replace the ousted Jeff Sessions.
Democrats say Whitaker should recuse himself from special counsel Robert Mueller's Russia probe—especially in light of his past comments about the investigation.
U.S. Rep. Jerry Nadler, D-N.Y., future chairman of the House Judiciary Committee, has already announced plans to hold hearings on Whitaker's appointment.
Nadler insists that Whitaker's appointment is an "attack" by the Trump administration on Mueller's investigation.
And some charge Whitaker's appointment is unconstitutional because he's not been approved by the Senate.
Meanwhile, Nadler and fellow Democrats also have their sights set on the president himself regarding hush payments to two women during the 2016 campaign who claim to have had affairs with him.
