    Former Acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker joined "Fox & Friends" to
    address his concerns with a D.C. jury finding former Hillary Clinton
    campaign lawyer Michael Sussmann not guilty of lying to the FBI.
    Whitaker pointed to the partisan leanings of the jury members.

    MATT WHITAKER: 4% of Washington, D.C. voted for Donald Trump.
    Obviously, this is going to be a pro-Democrat, pro-Clinton jury. My
    biggest concern is the jury foreman came out and really gave up what
    the jury was discussing, which is that they thought this case should
    have never been brought to their attention in the first place. And
    that's a little concerning because this looks more like a jury
    nullification, where even though the evidence was overwhelming, even
    though they, the government, proved their case, that the jury just
    decided that this wasn't a case worth pursuing. So this case, to me,
    factually and legally was a slam dunk case. But as I had said earlier,
    leading up to this jury verdict, this jury was going to be very
    difficult for Durham and his team to get a conviction.
