Acting Attorney General Matthew G. Whitaker shot down a number of the more wild speculations that have plagued him since his tenure at the Justice Department began more than three months ago.
Accused of being a plant by President Trump to squelch the special counsel’s investigation, he told Congress he hasn’t meddled at all.
“We have followed the special counsel’s regulations to a T,” Mr. Whitaker told the House Judiciary Committee during six hours of testimony. “There has been no decision that has required me to take any action, and I have not interfered with special counsel’s investigation in any way.”
He also assured lawmakers that he had not discussed the Russia investigation with Mr. Trump or with senior White House officials since helming the Justice Department.
Democrats and their allies have questioned why Mr. Trump bucked the Justice Department’s traditional line of succession, which would have made Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein the clear pick to act as attorney general after Mr. Trump ousted Jeff Sessions in November.
