Special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation has come under severe scrutiny since news broke an FBI official who handled the Hillary Clinton email case was fired from for texts that contained “anti-Trump bias.”
Although we don’t know the exact details of what FBI agent Peter Strzok wrote to warrant firing from the Russia case, the damage may had already been done. It turns out that the mysterious change from “grossly negligent” to “extremely careless” in former FBI director James Comey’s infamous exculpation of Hillary Clinton can be traced back to Strzok.
So much for “independent” and “bias-free” investigations.
Now, a different member of Mueller’s team is under fire for giving praise to fired outgoing acting Attorney General Sally Yates. This came from top prosecutor Andrew Weissmann to Sally Yates on Jan. 30, in praise of the court’s obstruction of Trump’s travel ban for non-compliant countries.
“I am so proud,” Weissman wrote. “And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.”
Andrew Weissman is none other than Mueller’s deputy in the Russia probe.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton, whose organization obtained the email, called it an “astonishing and disturbing find.”
“Andrew Weisman, a key prosecutor on Robert Mueller’s team, praised Obama DOJ holdover Sally Yates after she lawlessly thwarted President Trump,” he said in a statement. “How much more evidence do we need that the Mueller operation has been irredeemably compromised by anti-Trump partisans?”
A further irony is that the Supreme Court of the United States just upheld President Trump’s travel ban; this throws light on the activist nature of Weissmann as a second member of the Mueller team to show “anti-Trump bias.”
Will Robert Mueller fire Weissmann like he did Strzok? Only time will tell.
This is breaking news and will be updated with more information as forthcoming.
