    President Trump on Wednesday named Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general after Jeff Sessions turned in his resignation from the top Justice Department role, marking a new era of oversight for the DOJ and special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation.

    The president’s relationship with his top cop — and Whitaker’s now former boss — had deteriorated over the past two years following Sessions’ decision to recuse himself from the high-profile Russia probe.

    In his new capacity, Whitaker will take the reins of overseeing the probe from Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein, who has been a loyal defender of the investigation since Sessions stepped aside.

    Whitaker is now taking on a much more public role, after serving as Sessions' chief of staff.

    If that is true and it sounds at least at face value that it is, then the POTUS should name someone that is legally allowed to do it.

    A closer investigation indicates "wiggle room". I wouldn't worry about it.
    Call your state legislators and insist they approve the Article V convention of States to propose amendments.

    would it be unconstitutional for him to appoint someone like you, maybe even you, yourself?

    I am not worried, if it is legal I do not care who he appoints. If it is not, then he should appoint someone who is.
