Special Counsel Robert Mueller was just notified that one of his top prosecutors is leaving the investigation team for good. Andrew Weissman served as Mueller’s “legal pitbull”, and led the prosecution of former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort.
Weissman is reportedly moving on to greener pastures, taking on a teaching position at New York University. He is also slated to take on several “public service” projects.
Weissmann was a problematic figure in the Mueller investigation. Questions about his credibility arose almost immediately following Mueller’s decision to add Weissmann to the team.
Significant evidence points to Weissmann’s marked Democrat bais. According to Breitbart, Weissmann was present at then-candidate Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election-night party. Election filings also reveal that Weissmann contributed thousands to Democrat election efforts in 2006 and 2008.
Weissmann is not the first member of the Mueller team to leave the investigation effort. According to an NPR report, “Special Agent In Charge David Archey started a new job on March 4 as head of the FBI’s office in Richmond, Va.”
