Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his lead, Andrew Weissmann, both are accused of pursuing convictions by questionable means.
The Special Counsel is supposed to pursue the truth. But if Special Counsel Robert Mueller or his lead prosecutor believe that there is more glory in sensationalism and convictions, then witnesses claim that they won’t hesitate to use dirty tactics to realize their goal. Given the fact that the investigation is premised on a bizarre conspiracy theory, I doubt that many in the media will be satisfied with the truth.
Fox News reports, “Mueller team criticized by fellow attorneys for history of questionable tactics.”
Special Counsel Robert Mueller and his team running the Russia collusion probe are being accused by fellow attorneys of employing aggressive and questionable tactics in past cases, potentially putting a dent in his straight-shooter image.
As the investigation heats up and key players like former White House chief of staff Reince Priebus and press secretary Sean Spicer are interviewed by investigators, several attorneys with experience in federal cases spoke out with their concerns this week.
Harvey Silverglate, a criminal defense attorney in Massachusetts, wrote an opinion piece accusing Mueller of once trying to entrap him when Mueller was acting U.S. attorney in Boston.[…]
Sidney Powell, a former federal prosecutor, also took aim at Andrew Weissmann, the prosecutor tapped by Mueller to help lead the investigation, in a piece this week titled, “Judging by Mueller’s staffing choices, he may not be very interested in justice.”
Powell accused Weissmann, once the director of the Enron Task Force, of “prosecutorial overreach” in past cases and said it could signal what’s to come for President Trump and his associates in the Russia probe.[…]
Powell cited several cases where Weissmann won convictions that were later overturned.
