How many more anti-Trump players are involved in this Russia probe? Another today and how many more to come?
Robert Mueller’s Russia probe has a top prosecutor who is now a deputy for the Special Counsel who praised then-acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she was fired in January by President Trump for refusing to defend his notorious travel ban.
An email found through a federal lawsuit, shows that Andrew Weissmann, on January 30, wrote to Yates under the subject line, “I am so proud.”
He wrote in the body of the email, “And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.”
This follows confirmation that another Mueller investigator, FBI official Peter Strzok, was fired over the summer after allegedly sending anti-Trump texts to a woman that he was romantically involved with who was an FBI lawyer.
These actions rejuvenated concerns about the neutrality of the FBI probes of Hillary Clinton’s email setup and the Russia election meddling.
Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton referred to the new Weissmann document as an “astonishing and disturbing find.”
He said in a statement, “Andrew Weisman, a key prosecutor on Robert Mueller’s team, praised Obama DOJ holdover Sally Yates after she lawlessly thwarted President Trump. How much more evidence do we need that the Mueller operation has been irredeemably compromised by anti-Trump partisans?”
The email was sent from Weissmann’s government account, when he was still in the DOJ’s criminal division This was before he was assigned to Mueller’s probe.
The email in question, was sent after Trump fired Yates for refusing to defend the first version of his travel ban from certain majority-Muslim countries.
I guess I can expect more creepy crawlers to keep sliding out of the woodwork.
