"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.”

Perhaps it is time to suspend the Special Prosecutor and appoint new people who have no connections to D.C. and investigate the special prosecutor, Hillary and even Trump and do it according to the impartiality and fairness.

And if they can't do that it is time for Civil War II.

Special Prosecutor who will fix things.

Giuliani? Why would anyone trust that 911 insider?

toocrazy2yoo's picture

Oh yeah, that Civil War thing will work out..They'll stick a hell-fire up your ass and pull the cord. As for outsiders to Washington coming in, they wouldn't have a clue where to start. There's only one direction for 'investigations' to go--Uranium One and Hillary. Everyone in Washington knows it. Mueller's job is to stonewall it to Trump and the election. Mueller is being paid by Clinton. HAS to be.

The best part about this particular story is that Sally Yates was wrong not to enforce the travel ban. Wrong as fuck. Confirmed by two leftist SC Justices too. 

These hacks can go jump off a bridge. 

mojo_jojo's picture

You are correct. But they, Yates, neverTrumpers, deep state etc., don't give a shit. They were flinging shit as fast as they could hoping and praying that something would stick. It hasn't and they keep pushing fake narrative's, like the Brian Ross bullshit and today the imaginary Deutche bank investigation. Trump is leaving lit bags of steaming dog shit at their front doors and the idiot's keep stomping on the bag flinging shit everywhere. Very entertaining.

“Rebellion to tyranny is obedience to God.”-ThomasJefferson's picture

The politicized department of Justice, FBI,NSA, and CIA are a real bad idea.

The Directors of these institutions need to clean house.

If the citizens lose respect and faith in our justice system, as they have with the corporate fake news, it's time to turn out the lights.

Tyranny and authoritarianism are a short step away.


Mueller, Comey, McCabe, and Rosenstein need to testify, in public, and explain exactly what they've been up to for the past 30 years.

This is a dirty, corrupt, and complicit, deep state coup, undertaken in real time, before our very eyes.

'The Directors of these institutions need to clean house.' It's the directors themselves who need to be brought to justice - James Comey, John Brennan, James Clapper, Christopher Wray, McCabe, Rosenstein, et al. I'm sure there are many honest FBI, CIA, DOJ, and NSA employees who will have plenty to say once their non disclosure agreements are rendered void, about the politicization and corruption from the top down in their agencies.

"I'm sure there are many honest FBI, CIA, DOJ, and NSA employees who will have plenty to say once their non disclosure agreements are rendered void, about the politicization and corruption from the top down in their agencies."

WELL, I'M NOT SURE!  They have had decades to cull their herds, at least anywhere near the top.  The lower grade agents will do as they are told or lose their jobs.

Ideally, the teflon is wearing thin on these unqualified and disqualifed "public servants". They all cover each other's trails and it's high time to put an end to ethat. Hopefully, we're treated to the spectacle of them suiciding each other in public venues. Alas, experience has proven hope is an awful strategy.


Conscious Reviver's picture

Re.  Hope is an awful strategy. Sadly I agree. Chaos and war civil and otherwise is where this is going. Too late to stop now. In a previous ZH incarnation, my avatar was The Tower of Babel. They tried to reach the sky and when it fell, no one could understand each other. Hell on Earth ensued. That's where this is going. As individuals, we can only do our best to get out of the way.

Look...at this point it’s all compromised..None of these indictments are going to withstand cross examination on appeal...imagine if the principals were the prosecutors in you’re local town or city etc and your defense presented this...Turn out thee lights...

Lord Raglan's picture

Along those lines, ask yourself too what exculpatory evidence has Mueller and his Team withheld?  

AAPL Slayer's picture

The real astonishing part is "The Special Counsel" is completely illegal to begin with,the law that allowed for it expired in 1999 with both sides letting it do so,$7 mill later here we are,such bullshit

We've basically known since day one that virtually all of Mueller's team were either outright demonrats or were supporters of them and that the whole thing looked like a political lynching from the get go so why now all of a sudden has this become a big deal for everyone (i.e. it should have been from the start)??  What's changed that has swung the narrative like this??  Does Trump and team all of a sudden have some leverage they didn't have before or is it that they just now have grown the balls to use the leverage they had??  Inquiring minds want to know . . .

You are right something changed they would not have waited this long to start fighting.

They have all the evidence collected and cases put together and now they are ready to finally strike back, we can only hope, with a vengeance like none ever before seen. Hillary will skate but we can still be thankful she was denied the thing she wanted most. She will continue to live in a hell of her own making.

trailer park boys's picture

It always takes time for the truth to come out - Thank God for the real fact finders out there. And Thank God that the 50 million of us who voted for Trump and against the status quo Establishment haven't wavered from Day 1 - in the face of massive media, government and intel agency propaganda. I've seen TPTB and their puppets in government and media laugh at Trump and us Deplorables, but I also have seen fear in their eyes. Let's hope Hillary's hysterical prophecy - 'If Trump wins, we're all going to hang', comes true.  

trailer park boys's picture

A sincere Thank You to those courageous investigative reporters who are working day and night to fight the MSM fake news narrative. Searching out the TRUE facts of this McCarthy-like witch hunt - Judicial Watch, Sara Carter and Circa News, Robert Parry from Consortium News, William Binney the ex NSA officer, Glenn Greenwald and the Intercept, and others. And those few bringing these facts to light - Sean Hannity and Tucker Carlson from Fox News, Zerohedge and other online sites, Julian Assange from Wikileaks, and Edward Snowden, again among others. Beating the Establishment Deep State and their shills in the media is a daunting task. Keep up the good work - millions are behind you, and counting on you.

I think I'm falling in love with Sarah Carter.

trailer park boys's picture

I'm in love with her tenacious, tireless fact finding. She seems obsessed with rooting out the truth. Bad news for all the lying, sneaking swamp creatures out there.

And to George Webb who just doesn't give up and who has been pursuing the truth every single day for well over a year now.

Check out that post. 

It is an amazing read.

This is George Webb's 1+ years of undercover work. He has now filed lawsuits against all of the evil actors.

George Webb is the only person in the USA that can and will take down the entire swamp.

He is now in day 46 of his second year and starting to kick asses through the Judaical System.

He can't be stopped because he has constantly published all of his findings to his crowd source site.

Who's "astonished"? Certainly not me. FBI & DOJ, starting with scumbag Holder on down the line, and the Federal Bureau of Incompetents, whose only job it appears, is to keep Cankles out of jail. I wouldn't trust the DOJ or the FBI with anything ... nothing but political hacks top to bottom.

So the entire FBI was/is being used to deflect from Hillary's affairs? Meuller is tossing out his reputation as a law man to protect Hillary, too? Those skeletons must be MASSIVE!

yaright's picture

They are and each one of them is holding a slice some with cheese some with sausage.  Remember what Hillary said if I loose we all hang! I sure hope she was right

Lord Raglan's picture

you wonder what embarassing shit Hillary has on these guys that have turned them all into such pathetic bootlickers.  Must be juicy.  Surely explains why their first reaction to the Phony Pissgate Dossier was that the Russians were blackmailing Trump---because that's exactly what they would do.

Mueller's in the closet with those skeletons.  Possible case of necrophelia.  I'd call the FBI, but it wouldn't do any good.

Not the entire FBI,just the TOP LAYERS.(they belong in JAIL)

Every Clinton appointee should be removed from the FBI, and placed as Fed sanitary crews.
