A senior attorney on special counsel Robert Mueller’s legal team has even more connections to the Clinton campaign than previously thought; attending Hillary’s election night soiree in New York City along with other senior aides, reports the Wall Street Journal.
Andrew Weissmann, described by the New York Times as Mueller’s “pit-bull,” allegedly attended the Clinton Campaign’s supposed victory party last November.
“Mr. Weissmann also attended Hillary Clinton’s election-night party at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York, according to people familiar with his attendance,” writes the Journal.
Earlier this week, government watchdog agency Judicial Watch released an email exchange between the attorney and acting Attorney General Sally Yates, praising her decision to rebuke President Trump’s initial travel ban.
“I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects,” he wrote in late January.
Weissmann’s anti-Trump bias, along with other senior officials scattered throughout the special counsel’s office, raises serious ethical and legal questions over Mueller’s probe into Russia-Trump collusion in the 2016 election.
On Thursday, the Wall Street Journal urged Robert Mueller to step-down from his position, citing a host of conflicts of interest and the recent revelations regarding anti-Trump political bias throughout the investigation.
BIAS ALERT: Mueller's No. 2 SECRETLY SLAMMED Trump's Travel Ban
A senior-level prosecutor now serving as a Deputy to special counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia-Trump investigation found himself in hot-water on Tuesday, following reports he praised acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she publicly defied President Trump’s travel ban last January, reports Fox News.
The correspondence, obtained by government watch-dog agency Judicial Watch, shows that Andrew Weissmann emailed Yates in late January with the subject line, “I am so proud.”
“And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects,” the email continued.
Sally Yates was publicly fired by President Trump after she refused to enforce his executive order regarding immigration and refugees from specific countries around the world.
The news follows another revelation that a senior investigator inside the special counsel’s office was demoted earlier this year for his “anti-Trump bias;” being relocated to the Human Resources Department at the FBI after his “unprofessional” text exchanges were reviewed by Mueller’s team.
“Andrew Weisman, a key prosecutor on Robert Mueller’s team, praised Obama DOJ holdover Sally Yates after she lawlessly thwarted President Trump,” said Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton.
“How much more evidence do we need that the Mueller operation has been irredeemably compromised by anti-Trump partisans?” he asked.
COLLUSION: Mueller Hires ANOTHER Democrat for Trump-Russia Witch Hunt
The special counsel in charge of the Trump-Russia conspiracy theory witch-hunt has hired yet another democratic donor to spearhead the investigation; raising the number to eight individuals who had previously given money to prominent liberals like Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.
According to Reuters, New York defense attorney Greg Andres has joined Mueller’s task force charged with probing the Trump campaign’s alleged ties with Russian government officials.
Federal Election Commission filings show that Andres gave nearly $4000 to the democratic party, including $2700 to help NY Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand’s campaign in 2017.
The Daily Caller also reports that Andres’ wife, Ronnie Abrams, is a federal judge appointed by none-other-than former President Barack Obama back in 2011.
Robert Mueller has come under fire for hiring left-leaning, democratic donors to help run his investigation of the Trump administration. The President and other GOP lawmakers are calling on Mueller to step down from the probe over these conflicts of interest, as well as his close relationship with former FBI director James Comey.
“I can say that the people that have been hired are all Hillary Clinton supporters, some of them worked for Hillary Clinton,” The President said during an interview in late June. “I mean, the whole thing is ridiculous if you want to know the truth.”
