ANOTHER: Email Exposes Mueller Deputy As Anti-Trump

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

Andrew Weissmann

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.”

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…”

“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 is an amazing turn of events and one that does not look good for the future of our nation. It should be clear to average Americans, Democrat, Republican, and independent that there exists a cabal in Washington that considers itself the government. They do not wish to report or be controlled by Congress, our representatives, and they want business as usual to continue no matter who we elect as president.

    • Shelba J. Holmes

      You are absolutely right and that cabal is scared out of their wits of DOnald Trump. This whole farce with Mueller is about destroying Trump and has noting whatsoever to do with Russia. They are doing everything in their power to deflect away from their guilt in covering the guilt of Hillary Clinton and her surrogates that they are so intent on protecting from the American people and justice. Mieller and his cronies should be sent packing this very minute.

      I hope and pray that Trump is there 8 years and he keeps doing what he is doing. I can certainly oveerlook his tweeting habits if he gets to the botton of the swamp in Washington and gets rid of some of these traitors.

      • Sam

        Trump IS the cabal you fool. Look who’s in his cabinet!!! Wall Street is loving this, Main Street is screwed…and unless you are a billionaire, that means YOU!!

  • tCotUS

    Mueller is Dirty…Drain the Dirty Swamp Trump…

  • How much more do we need to know before someone in Congress puts a stop to Muller which is jan obvious puppet of the Clinton Cartel.

    • 1ForWisdom

      A lot of Congress is deep state too.

    • Deplorable wizard

      Mueller is a schill, and a puppet, but the “clinton cartel” has died. In fact, the clintons were never the true power people think. Let’s face it, the ineptitude of slick willie and his ugly unstable wife proves that they could not have the brains some folks give them credit for. If one stands back, distancing themself from the drastic and just views the clintons, and most of the left (including bho) in an overall picture, you can almost see a shadowy figure stroking a white cat.
      Actually, soros would be like “number five”, and the clintons numbers 10 & 11. Not quite Ian Fleming’s James Bond vs S.P.E.C.T.R.
      More like Buck Henry’s Maxwell Smart vs C.H.A.O.S., with all the stupid mistakes.
      The tragedy is real people are affected, even killed by these comedians.

    • mrp15

      And definitely Mueller is a puppet of George Soros who in fact runs the democratic party. Why did Strozok charge Flynn with lying to the FBI while at the same time overlooking Huma Abedin and Cherry Mills lies when they claimed they were not aware of Hillary’s private illegal server until after she left the state department. This was proven to be untrue but nothing happened to them because Hillary had “special” status. Justice is blind when it comes to the Clintons.

  • Louie Rey

    This is the most despicable and conflicted investigation ever in the nation’s history. This special (and I do mean special) counsel should be investigated for all of its corruption. Remember the good old days when America’s federal agencies always adhered to the rule of law? Yeah, neither do I.

    • richjack4

      Hey Louis! The hits just keep on coming with this investigation. A total partisan sham that Mueller should be forced to repay the American public the $6.7 million he robbed us of!

      • Sam

        How about the GOP repay the over 7 Million spent on Bengazi that turned up NOTHING. Mueller already has one conviction under his belt. Let him do his job. Mueller will take down the Trump crime family the same way he took down the Gambino crime family. He knows corruption when he sees it and he knows how to present an air tight case.

        • richjack4

          Funny you say that, another partition biased investigation that needs to be revisited! One conviction???? spare me, the equivalent of a parking ticket! Read up on Alan Dershowitzs’take on how “airtight” Mueller’s cases are. You liberals were certainly grasp at anything!nothing personal, but I value his legal opinion a little bit more than yours!

        • Deplorable wizard

          A confession IS NOT A CONVICTION. And EVERYONE knows why the Bengazi story whent stale, the same way fast and furious went stale: DEMOCRAT CORRUPTION!

        • Strangerinastangeland

          Bengazi showcased the inability of H. Clinton to lead. Bengazi led to Clinton, Susan Rice and Obama to lie to the American people on multiple occasions. It would be helpful if you would pay attention and quit listening to Joyce Behar for your opinions.

          • 1loyalamerican74

            Mueller was under the authority of the Clinton’s. He should be in Gitmo

          • Sam

            Seriously, he’s a registered Rethuglican as are most of FBI.

        • Jerry Hughes

          Chances are excellent that you liberal dem bloodsuckers had better start buying weapons and kevlar. there is zero patience left with you scum

          • Sam

            Oooh you sound so manly and tough. Do you practice in the mirror? You are a fake man full of false bravado like your idiot leader.

        • chris VN

          And then he can tackle the clintons, comey, holder, etc, etc, LOL. And HE should know corruption when HE seems it, because HE is part of it.!!!

        • 1loyalamerican74

          You are full of DEMS feces.

        • frankie gatturna

          Sam tou are ao phucking ifnorant tou are unamerican and just plain stupid how to keep your stupid pinions to yourself cuz you’re an idiot what the f*** you’re talking about

          • Sam

            We are coming after you! We are the deep state and we will own you, sell you to other deep state families and make you clean our houses and pick our crops.!

            Lol, what idiots you are, so controlled by the fear your leaders impose on you. All Christians are so easily controlled with stories of boogie men. GOP have you eating out of their hands. FOOLS!

  • Bruce Kellar

    Very little of this is without past history. The Clinton dynasty has proliferated throughout the government virtually unchecked for the past 20 years. Before that it was more subdued and operated behind closed curtains including offshore (see bilderbergs etc) until the liberals became so openly corrupt within their status as the ruling party. Had clinton been elected the nation would already dissolved the constitution. Trump has virtually single handed taken on the machine that operates the nation with the left hand while we have been watching the right hand. Sadly I predict the cowardice that is so ingrained in our social fabric, it is as of Obama- too late. Democrats and freeloaders will vote democrat no matter what.

  • Hope

    The only people surprised by this are the ones that wanted us to believe that, even though they were all big Dem donors, they were impartial and were brought in to run a real investigation.

  • Steve G.

    I’m so proud that you won’t follow the law you swore to uphold. Mueller is doing the same thing. The liberals in the deep state have been engaged in corruption for to long.

    Since May, after learning the types of people Mueller was placing on his team ( all Democrat and Hillary loyalists ), but before I learned about Mueller’s and Strzok’s participation in the Uranium One scheme, I urged the President to appoint special counsel to investigate special counsel Mueller and his minions for corruption. I more strongly urge it now only go back to the year 2000..

  • Big M

    It’s really time for Trump to appoint a special prosecutor (Hopefully mayor Guilani to investigate Mueller and the Clintons on numerous shady transactions including Uranium 1).

    • R G

      Yup , Rudy G would go after them with hellfire backing him up. Wouldn’t be enough left to even make toast.

      • Big M

        That is exactly what I am thinking. Time to not only drain the swamp, it’s also time to burn it down.


    The whole Mueller team is corrupt.

  • mrp15

    Andrew Weissman who overstepped legal bounds to get convictions at all costs should never have been appointed to Mueller’s team. He has been accused of prosecutorial misconduct and is the one touted as getting defendants to flip on the bigger fish. Many of his convictions were overturned unanimously and instead of being appointed by the special counsel, he should be disbarred.

    • Interestedintruth

      McCabe should also be fired from FBI.

  • Sam

    1st off….FREE speech! People are allowed to have opinions. 2nd, if you have to fire every anti Trump person on the team you’ll have to fire 70% of the them because 70% of the country HATES that aHole Trump.

    • Deplorable wizard

      Where do you get the VERY inflated number of 70%?
      Because any number of people that refuse the alt left fake news can give numbers ranging from 40% to 98% approval ratings.
      I’m sure you’ll claim a cnn or wapo poll, or some similar left wing franchise, just as I can claim the 98% approval rating from a right wing source.

      But in reality, President Trump has done more FOR the U.S. in 11 months than bho in 8 years.

    • Interestedintruth

      I’m guessing you hang around with all libs and have gathered your erroneous info from them.Trump’s winning! We love him! we love his tweets! We’ve learned so much about the lying Dem thugs (especially the Clintons and Soros), thanks to Trump. People like you just don’t learn.

  • Doug

    wow there is so much corruption and bias in the govt. To be assistant AG and throw it away because of your bias. You work for the Govt. and the President and so what was you thinking…YOU WASN’T…

  • Doug

    SAM I guess you drank the same kool-aide as many have..and because of that many have been de-moted or terminated. If you work somewhere and you have a boss try running him down and talk trash about him or her and see how long you continue to be employed at that job.

  • SA Ander

    Lets see his picture, put him out in the open.

  • Tony B

    President Trump and Mr Muller’s sting efforts will provide relief in many of these failed justice issues. We await several hundred sealed indictments to reveal who will be held accountable for what. Our president will keep his promises, “a new sheriff in town” for one. Be patient.

  • Luis Luna

    Rush said this morning Trump needs to fire Muellar and put an end to this. He said they can’t get him for Obstruction because no crime in the first place it’s off a Phony Dossier that the investigation is going on

  • kassa1

    We have our military other countries fighting to prevent trash like Mueller, and we have more right here! Where are you troops? You swore to protect the country from enemies foreign and DOMESTIC!


      So to be clear you are calling for ex- and current troops to engage in a violent attack on a congressionally-appointed special prosecutor? Say hi to the NSA, moron!

  • Maynard

    Keep it up Mr Trump, soon the swamp will be cleared of dangerous animals and there’ll only be passive alligators, rattlers etc there.

  • Bill

    and still, all of this political hypocrisy has no objections by a demonratic member of congress.

  • Pat Warnock

    Did Mueller check any of the resumes when picking this team or did ticking the anti-Trump box was all that was necessary?

  • chris VN

    Just need to find Mueller own emails now??

  • John

    The hits just keep on coming. If the actions of the Obama admin ever came to the full light of day , they may have to build another wing at Leavenworth and bring in tons of boulders to break into gravel

  • meatthepenthouse

    Robert Mueller investigative team could be perfectly summed up as the killers who were tasked to investigated their victims.

  • fishunter

    President Trump should fire the bunch and start over.

  • Nitemare96x

    We have less illegal immigration , way higher employment, outstanding stocks …economy booooming..He’s 100% for America!!! MAGA!!! The leftist Democrats will tell you that America belongs to the whole world. Americans will have to step aside to make room for every one who comes here, no limits , welfare for everyone on the planet. Multiculturalism = Ethnocide. Our President has not done anything wrong at all. the left is just raging at the loss of power. When asked why they hate Trump all I ever get are insults , vague accusations, Rumors and lies. They cannot even say why they like being democrat, all I get are insults and vague attacks on Trump, and name calling, Racist Racist Racist . What racism ? Never a precise answer, just more vague accusations and insults and rumors..The Left are dying. People are leaving the democrat party by the millions
