Report: Former Iowa Hawkeye Tight End Might Be President Trump’s Next Lawyer
DES MOINES, Iowa--Matt Whitaker--who played tight end for the Iowa Hawkeyes 1991 Rose Bowl team and later became U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Iowa-- is named as a possible replacement for President Donald Trump's legal counsel, according to Axios. Whitaker works as U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions' chief of staff. And President Trump frequently belittles Sessions' decisions. But Axios reports that despite that, Whitaker "managed to maintain a good standing inside the White House despite Trump's hatred of Sessions."
