Looks like Robert Mueller’s attack dog Andrew Weissmann is in hot water, and now being probed by Congress for the crime of “corrupt legal practices”.
Yet another member of Robert Mueller’s team conducting the sham witch hunt of President Trump is in deep shit, as top attorney in Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s office, Andrew Weissmann, for apparently withholding evidence in a previous case, and is reportedly now being investigated by Congress.
Andrew Weissmann has been accused of “corrupt legal practices” for apparently withholding evidence in another large and important case.
Are there any good people in Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s office, or are they all criminals?
Seriously, that is a real question!
Last we heard, there have been around 14 people removed who were involved with the illegal spying and sham “investigation” of Trump and his administration, These 14 corrupt assholes were either forced to step down, or knowing the evidence soon to be released, went ahead and resigned on their own.
Now we can probably go ahead and pencil in Andrew Weissmann as another member of Mueller’s sham investigation team who should be immediately removed from their fake witch hunt.
The top attorney in Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s office was reported to the Department of Justice’s Inspector General by a lawyer representing whistleblowers for alleged “corrupt legal practices” nearly a decade before the 2016 presidential election, this reporter has learned.
Described by the New York Times as Mueller’s ‘pitbull,’ Andrew Weissmann, a former Eastern District of New York Assistant U.S. Attorney, rose through the ranks to eventually become Mueller’s general counsel at the F.B.I.
In 2015 Weissmann was selected to run the Department of Justice’s criminal fraud section and was later handpicked by Mueller to join the ongoing Special Counsel’s Office investigation into the alleged obstruction and alleged collusion between Trump’s 2016 presidential campaign and Russia.
But Weissmann’s rise to the top was rocky from the start. Although he’s been described as a tough prosecutor by some, his involvement in a case targeting the Colombo crime family in a New York Eastern District Court was the first of many that would draw criticism from his peers, as well as judges.
Civil rights and criminal defense attorney David Schoen, was the lawyer who reported Weissmann. Schoen met with Inspector General Michael Horowitz and several FBI officials to discuss Weismann in 2015. Schoen, who says he has never been a member of a political party, told this reporter his concerns about Weissmann do not stem from politics but from Weissmann’s ‘egregious’ actions in previous cases. He became involved in Colombo crime cases more than 20 years ago after evidence revealed that the prosecution withheld exculpatory evidence in the case.
Schoen’s work is not limited to criminal defense but also extended to civil right’s cases. He was awarded the prestigious National Pro Bono Publico award in 1995, and the American Bar Association reported that various federal judges credited him for positively changing “the face of public institutions in South.”
Schoen said he decided to revisit the nearly two-decade-long cases based on new witness information and “recent evidence that has come to light in the last several months.”
“The issue with Weissmann both pre-dates and transcends any of these current political issues,” said Schoen, who also used to represent the ACLU in civil right’s cases in Alabama. “I have met with Senator (Charles) Grassley’s staff and the DOJ IG about these issues and that was well before all of this…I care about these issues as a person who chose this profession and am otherwise very proud to be able to practice law, as the proud son of an FBI agent, and as a civil rights attorney dedicated to doing my part in trying to improve public institutions.”
John Lavinsky, a spokesman for the DOJ’s Office of Inspector General, declined to comment on Schoen’s meeting with Horowitz.
Weissmann also declined to comment for this story.
