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.
