He also disputed Nadler's interpretation of Whitaker's potential discussions about the Southern District.
"Two, while he was acting Attorney General, Mr. Whitaker was directly involved in conversations about whether to fire one or more U.S. Attorneys", he continued.
According to Collins' legal counsel, Whitaker said in the meeting that he "does not remember" any conversations with Trump regarding Cohen.

Trump challenged that, tweeting that Cohen had "directly asked" him for a pardon. Committee Republicans had no say in determining ground rules for the second meeting.
Nadler said he wasn't sure what the next steps would be after hearing from Whitaker.
Nadler said after the public testimony that his answers were 'unsatisfactory, incomplete or contradicted by other evidence.' In the letter sent to the Justice Department, Nadler said Whitaker didn't offer clear responses about his communications with the White House and was inconsistent about what questions he refused to answer.
