"Astonishing And Disturbing" Email Exposes Mueller Deputy As Anti-Trumper

Tyler Durden's picture

The rumblings that Special Counsel Mueller's Russia investigation is perilously compromised by political bias are about to grow a whole lot louder.

Just a couple of days after it was revealed that FBI veteran, Peter Strzok, was removed from Mueller's team due to the discovery of anti-Trump text messages exchanged with a colleague (whom he happened to be having an extra-marital affair with), and hours after the WSJ editorial board called for Mueller to step down for being "too conflicted", Judicial Watch has released emails obtained via FOIA that reveal another agent and a Mueller deputy, Andrew Weissmann, praising former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates' efforts to defy a direct order from President Trump on the enforcement of his travel ban executive order.

"I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects."

Andrew Weissmann

The email from Weissmann came exactly 1 hour after Yates was relieved of her duties with the Department of Justice by President Trump for refusing to enforce his travel ban executive order.  Here was our summary of the firing and the White House's official statement on Yates' dismissal:

That "mutiny" did not last long. At 9:16pm on Monday, President Trump announced the firing of the acting attorney general, Sally Yates, who defied him just three hours earlier on his migrant-travel ban urging the DOJ not to follow his executive order, saying she "has betrayed the Department of Justice."


Statement on the Appointment of Dana Boente as Acting Attorney General


The acting Attorney General, Sally Yates, has betrayed the Department of Justice by refusing to enforce a legal order designed to protect the citizens of the United States. This order was approved as to form and legality by the Department of Justice Office of Legal Counsel.


Ms. Yates is an Obama Administration appointee who is weak on borders and very weak on illegal immigration.


It is time to get serious about protecting our country. Calling for tougher vetting for individuals travelling from seven dangerous places is not extreme. It is reasonable and necessary to protect our country.


Tonight, President Trump relieved Ms. Yates of her duties and subsequently named Dana Boente, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Virginia, to serve as Acting Attorney General until Senator Jeff Sessions is finally confirmed by the Senate, where he is being wrongly held up by Democrat senators for strictly political reasons.


"I am honored to serve President Trump in this role until Senator Sessions is confirmed. I will defend and enforce the laws of our country to ensure that our people and our nation are protected," said Dana Boente, Acting Attorney General.

Meanwhile, as we pointed out last summer (see: Does Mueller's Team's Democratic Bias Confirm Gingrich's "Time To Rethink" Warning?), Weissmann, to our complete 'shock', donated more than $4,000 to Obama's presidential campaign in 2008 and $2,000 to the DNC in 2006.  Of course, Weissmann was not alone in putting his hard-earned money behind Democratic candidates...as Heavy noted, there seems to be a pretty consistent theme to which party Mueller's agents seem to prefer...

Jeannie Rhee: donated $5,400 to Hillary Clinton in 2015 and 2016, according to FEC records. The records show she gave $2,500 each to Obama for America and Obama Victory Fund 2012 in 2011


Andrew Goldstein: According to Fox News, “Goldstein contributed a combined $3,300 to Obama’s campaigns in 2008 and 2012”


Greg Andres: FEC records show that Andres has donated at least $2,700 to Senator Kirsten Gillibrand (D-NY)


James Quarles: Donated thousands of dollars to the campaigns of Hillary Clinton and Barack Obama. He has also donated money recently to other Democrats, including Friends of Chuck Schumer and two other Democrats. He has a lengthy donation history dating back years. He did donate to two Republicans over the years, however.


Elizabeth Prelogar: A former law clerk to Justics Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Elena Kagen, gave $250 to Hillary Clinton in 2016, according to FEC records. She also gave $500 total to Obama for America and the Obama Victory Fund 2012.


Brandon Van Grack: gave small amounts to ActBlue, an effort to raise money for Democrats, and to a Democratic candidate for Congress in 2012. In 2008, he gave about $286 to Barack Obama.


Rush Atkinson: donated $200 to Clinton’s campaign in 2016.


Kyle Freeny: In 2012, Freeny gave $300 to Obama. In 2008, Freeny also gave $250 to Obama, FEC records show.

Finally, we leave you with Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton's assessment of this latest revelation:

“This is an astonishing and disturbing find. 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? Shut it down.”

Another dual-citzen exposed .... shocking I tell ya:

"As Russia special counsel Robert Mueller hires more attorneys to help on the inquiry into the Trump White House, some members of the tribe are joining the team.

Among the Jews on the team are Andrew Goldstein, Aaron Zelinsky and Andrew Weissmann, all seasoned prosecutors from the Justice Department, according to a list of names from Talking Points Memo"

...Annnnnd this just in:  Weissmann was having an affair with Sally Yates ... (for those who don't follow think Strzok/Page)

Wow, it's amazing either one found someone to fuck them . . . much less eachother.

or there can be, you know, actual lawyers who pride themselves on discovering the truth and presenting facts. They probably aren't the ones buying "Resist" bumper stickers and priding themselves on being colossal attention whores.

JimmyJones's picture

Just search the federal elections data base and see who they donated to, that will tell you what you want to know about them.

jeff montanye's picture

i'm a little surprised that people in charge of insuring the government is not crooked are even allowed to make political contributions.

Looks from the comments like the CIA - Nazi troll farm is back up and running. Look for another Charlottesville event coming soon.

You wrote:"There are only two kinds: Anti-Trump and Pro-Trump. Both are not qualified to investigate."

Dumb ass - there's nothing to investigate as far as Russian intervention in the 2016 election goes.

There's plenty to investigate as far as cold-blooded criminality goes concerning Hillary's Whore Corps.

Clinteastwood's picture

Right, so since there’s no one qualified to investigate, how ‘bout we just stop paying for an investigation?

A Sentinel's picture

Eh.... I qualify as kinda neither and I’m not alone... but the correct answer to your question is “Mu!” (The answer in the koan about a dog’s Buddha nature.)

The point is that someone with a dog in the fight will do the Gubmintoverseement and that means one bent or the other.

I still say instead of focusing on who donated to the various Clinton Foundations, the investigators should focus on where their money was spent.  Every penny of it.  I don't even care how much the Clintons kept for themselves or spent on themselves, which is probably shocking in its own right.  But I want to see where the rest of it went.  If it is a charitable foundation, shouldn't this info be available to the public?  How much was doled out to politicians, candidates, or directly to the DNC?  How much went to people in federal agencies such as the FBI or DOJ, or to their family members?  Was any of it used to fund black ops?  We're talking $100 billion+ here.  You can't tell me it was mainly used for watered-down HIV drugs for Africa or a building or two in Haiti.  This kind of money buys more than simple political loyalty.  

Investigate the foundations, get to the real truth.  IMHO

JimmyJones's picture

You really need to look at what they paid them selves for Salaries, what they paid for "Services" to other companies and or Consultants.  Thats how you take a donation and turn it into personal income. Spend 50,000 for a 1000 dollar website that one person put together in an afternoon, things like that.  Paid 100,000 for a needs assessment.

FoggyWorld's picture

And what did their Foundation pay out to other Foundations.  That is a prevalent method of dodging taxes.

@ Jimmy,

The agencies that are supposed to represent the people and enforce the law have morphed into political tools to be used Against The American People. How are you going to get an agency like the FBI to investigate the Clintons when they are in on the scam? 

A score of senior and rank and file agents should have gone to prison for burning all those women and children to death in Waco.  The Clinton Administration gave those agents a pass, and in the process the Clintons purchased the undying support of the agency.  When the very tool you would use to bring down a criminal enterprise has been coopted by that enterprise, you better tread softly.

I am beginning to understand that we are at a tipping point.  People are beginning to grasp the import of agency lies about the assassination of President Kennedy.  It is clear now that the lies were not told to protect the public. 

They were told so that the coconspirators could perfect their coup.  Once the coup was completed successive generations of politicians were given the message.  That message was simple.  We the shadow government can kill anybody we choose.  Look what we did to Kennedy.  You either toe the line or you will send in the cleaners.  Those that would not kao tau to shadow rulers got to meet their John Hinckley or died under suspicious circumstances in some West Texas ranch.

( Doesn’t matter the Criminal alphabet Agencies, the Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths at the CIA have decades & Trillions invested over the decades planting “Agent Smiths” in all of them Pentagram MIC included.)

People are beginning to understand that they have been herded by acts of terrorism conducted by their own state.  The scenario of the lone shooter with spectacular marksmanship and fantastic kill rates has lost its credibility. Just another in a lone, long line of “book depository”False Flags.

Trump full well understands that he is in mortal combat with a sinister and entrenched oligarchy.  This is not their first rodeo and they are extremely dangerous.  He has to be sure of his footing before he takes his next step.  By the grace of God, he may just very well be able to pull back the curtain and expose these monsters.

If they manage to kill him, buckle up because any agency with federal in its title will have lost any claim to legitimacy.  The oligarchs tried to steal the election and that failed.  If they steal the election by killing the President, what follows next is a turkey shoot.

Tyrannical Lawlessness.

And yet they seem to be going for it as if they can get away with it, or are they cornered by the fact that they will be exposed and so they're forced to play the cards they have and hope they win?

I have a bad feeling there will be a lot of dying before this thing is over.  Perfect storm.

Chupacabra-322's picture


They’re “going all in.” Doesn’t matter what Hand the Pure Evil War Criminal Treasonous Seditious Psychopaths at the Deep State & their cohorts have been dealt.

Win, stolen or lost. They were going & are going "all in" with the PsyOp, Scripted False Narrative of Russia hacking the Elections / Russia / Putin / Trump Propaganda gone full retard via the Deep States Opeatives in the Presstitute Media.

The misconception is that individuals believe we are dealing with normal, sane human beings. We're not. Far from it. What we are dealing with are sick, twisted, Pure Evil Criminal, Psychopathic, Satanic / Lucerferian elements from the CIA / Pentagram Temple of Set Scum literally making Hell on Earth.

What's at Stake is the Deep State Global network of MultiNational Central Banking, Espionage, Murder, War, Torture, Destabilization Campaigns, BlackMail, Extortion, Child / Human Trafficking, Drug / Gun Running, Money Laundering, Corruption, NSA spying, Media control & control of the 17 Intelligence Agencies.

Most importantly, The Deep State controls all the distribution lines of the aforementioned. Especially the Coaxial Cable Communication lines of Espionage spying & Surveillance State Apparatus / Infrastructure.

Agencies all built on the British Model of Intelligence. Purely Evil & Highly Compartmentalized Levels which function as a Step Pyramid Model of Authority / Monarch Reign Pyramid Model of Authority.

That's what's at Stake. How this plays out is anyone's guess. The Pure Evil Criminal Psychopath Rogue elements of the Deep State will not go quietly. If not dealt with now, they'll disappear only to resurface at a later date with one objective:

Total Complete Full Spectrum World Domination they seek through Power & Control.

It's those Select Highly Compartmentalized Criminal Pure Evil Rogue Elements at the Deep State Top that have had control since the JFK Execution that have entrenched themselves for decades & refuse to relinquish Control.

This impure evil has been running the world since the time of the Pharoahs, it's ancient Babylonian mysticism/paganism and it is nothing more than the worship of Lucifer; it has never died out, it just re-emerges as something far more wicked, vile and sinister. They are all the sons and daughters of satan and do what he does - kill, steal and destroy.

It would be Nieve to think that hundreds of thousands of years of control over mankind be simply turned over by the Criminal Pure Evil Psychopathic Elite.

The Deep State will always exist.

However, the Pure Evil Criminal Psychopathic Highly Compartmentalized Rogue Levels of it are being delt with. Which is what the World is witnessing.

SWRichmond's picture

I agree, and it's been obvious for awhile they're going all in.  I keep expecting a limited hangout, but they keep doubling down even as their own losses increase.  This means neither side is going to back down and the big guns haven't even come out yet.

Got any food in the house?  (rhetorical)

Interesting...a Martingale strategy applied to politics.  In finance it's easy to figure out the end game, but when do these types run out of political "capital?"

jeff montanye's picture

they are running out of political capital right now.  it has been costing them dearly since 9-11 and the war in iran diverged so strongly from their advertisements.  ditto with obama (i should know; i gave him money and got him out votes in 2008).  we are increasing the burn rate right here on zerohedge and so is trump on twitter.  even mr. mueller is shoveling bank notes into the flames by hiring and firing partisan hacks.

in an attempt to do further damage to the reputation of the deep state, i've taken out a membership at daily kos and intend on some sporadic missionary work among the pagans.

They are all in the same club. Party affiliation is an illusion to perpetrate the idea that we have a choice. We don't until now. Why re-train new crooks every time the WH turns over? That would mean less $$$ to steal and hide offshore!

Sounds like Mueller will be packing in soon? What about something new this time: claw back all the $$$ paid for this sham. It's like raw sewage being pumped through one of those big snow making machines with the big fan......all over the American Electorate.

you guys crack me up. A $250 campaign contribution? Like it matters....

corsair's picture

it's the thought that counts ;-)

jeff montanye's picture

it is the thought that counts.  imo those charged with enforcing campaign laws, etc. should get to vote, period.  no contributions, no campaigning, etc.  

but since no one in the whole federal government apparently thought anything amiss when the federal judge in charge of the 9-11 families suits for damages, judge alvin k. hellerstein, dismissed every one of them while his israeli lawyer son worked for the israeli firm defending the israeli company in charge of passenger screening at the relevant airports which was being sued by the families, we are a long way from fairness or even the illusion of fairness.

Mueller and company may as well pack up their tent and leave town. If he said water was wet no one would believe him at this point in time. He's lost any credibility he ever had. He should have known this would happen, every one knew he was stacking his team with anti-trumpers, what a fucking moron.

Are you serious? Haha, rookie.

His dream team was there for 1 purpose and 1 purpose only, to cover up as much of the trash/dirt created over the last 20 years as possible in the back office.

i agree. Your country is politically not very well run. its got a constitution that is as about as relevant as the Ark to modern life. its pretty corrupt. I mean what the fuck is Ivanka and jahed doing in the white house? trump should of been sacked months ago and in the meantime the country is subjest to tons of grandstanding and bullshit from the legal system. 

Corporations run America - not the people. its not really a democracy on a national level. 

jeff montanye's picture

you may need to read that constitution over again, big emphasis on the bill of rights.  yes you don't worry too much about soldiers being quartered in your house but the government is certainly chewing through the rest of it pretty damn fast.  it is on that basis that a counterattack can be mounted, in part.

what the fuck is ivanka or jared doing in the white house?  advising trump would be my guess; he gets to appoint whom he wants as advisor: jfk put his brother in charge of the justice department (they shot him in the head, blamed a palestinian, then named the headquarters after him).  why should trump have been "sacked" months ago?  you need to say why for your comments to mean anything.  we are being "subjest" to tons of grandstanding and bullshit from the legal system and it is funny to a degree.  however the rule of law is crucial, both in fact and in appearance.  and this contest at law is helping many see just how far apart in fact and in appearance have gotten in today's u.s.a.
