Trump's former acting AG takes on the Justice Department in new book

Cover: Regnery Publishing

Matt Whitaker, who became acting attorney general after President Trump canned Jeff Sessions, will be out May 19 with a book titled: "Above the Law: The Inside Story of How the Justice Department Tried to Subvert President Trump."

Why it matters: It's not every day — or every decade — that a former head of a department accuses his old workplace of trying to sabotage the president.

  • The cover shows the faces of former FBI officials James Comey, Andrew McCabe and Peter Strzok.
  • House Intelligence Committee ranking member Devin Nunes — the O.G. of anti-Deep State crusaders — has written the foreword.
