BPR: 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. MORE
