Mediaite reports:

When asked by reporters today about his selection of Whitaker to replace Jeff Sessions, and the Justice Department official’s history of criticizing the Mueller probe, Trump said this:

“I don’t know Matt Whitaker. Matt Whitaker worked for Jeff Sessions, and he was always extremely highly thought of, and he still is. But I didn’t know Matt Whitaker. He worked for Attorney General Sessions.”
