At fiery hearing, Whitaker testifies that he has not talked about Mueller to Trump
(CNN) -- Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker told lawmakers on Friday he has not spoken to President Donald Trump about special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation as he squared off with Democrats over his tenure atop the Justice Department during a contentious congressional hearing. Whitaker testified following a lengthy fight with House Judiciary Chairman Jerry Nadler over the prospect that he would be subpoenaed for not answering questions. But even when faced just feet in front of Nadler, Whitaker resisted questioning, at one point cutting off the chairman to note his five minutes was up, drawing the scoffs of astonished members of Congress.
