Andrew Weissmann: Pitbull or Pitfall?

Andrew Weissmann, a prominent top investigator on special counsel Robert Mueller’s Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) team looking into the ongoing “Trump-Russia conspiracy” inquiry, has been accused of personal, partisan, political bias in his often-zealous pursuit of justice.

Weissman is no newbie to the Law and Justice. Among the highlights of his career as a prosecutor are the Enron scandal and New York mob boss cases – he prosecuted more than 25 members of the Genovese, Colombo and Gambino crime families.

Weissman also directed the controversial raid conducted by the FBI last July 2017 before sunrise at Paul Manafort’s Virginia home. Manafort was charged on October 30, 2017, as part of the Russia investigation. He has pled not guilty to 12 counts, including money laundering, failing to register as a foreign agent, and conspiracy against the United States. None other than “Pitbull” Weissman is the lead prosecutor for this case.

There are several testaments to Weissmann’s Democratic, leftist leanings which, together, suggest strongly that he is unfit to serve on any investigation concerning President Donald Trump.

Before joining Mueller’s FBI squad, Weissman sent an enthusiastically supportive email to former acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she refused to enforce President Trump’s original travel ban issued by executive order on January 27, 2017.

Quartz quoted a memo Yates wrote and sent to her staff:

“I am not convinced that the defense of the Executive Order is consistent with these responsibilities nor am I convinced that the Executive Order is lawful.”

Yates understood the consequences of violating a direct order from the US Commander-in-Chief, but rather than resign, she issued a Justice Department directive not to present legal arguments in defense of the travel ban, and then waited for the proverbial axe to fall, which it did, in the form of a letter of dismissal later that evening.

Weissman let Yates know that, as a fellow jurist, he agreed that Trump’s executive order halting travel to the US by citizens of seven majority-Muslim countries for 90 days, by Syrian refugees indefinitely, and by all refugees for 120 days, was both unlawful and unconstitutional.

Business Insider quoted Weissman’s email to Yates:

“I am so proud,” Weissmann wrote. “And in awe. Thank you so much.”

Yates’ failure to uphold the federal travel ban would have left the government without a legal defense in subsequent court cases.

(Dana Boente, the US attorney in the Eastern District of Virginia since December 2015, succeeded Yates as Attorney General. In an interesting side note, the CIA and the Pentagon are both located in the Eastern District of Virginia, which often oversees high-profile terrorism cases.)

Questions of loyalty aside, is Weissman a good lawyer? An article from Heavy casts some reasonable doubt on even that claim:

“Time after time, courts have reversed Weissmann’s most touted ‘victories’ for his tactics. This is hardly the stuff of a hero in the law. Weissmann, as deputy and later director of the Enron Task Force, destroyed the venerable accounting firm of Arthur Andersen LLP and its 85,000 jobs worldwide — only to be reversed several years later by a unanimous Supreme Court.”

As far back as 2008, Weissman revealed his partisan position when he gave $2,300 to Obama’s first presidential campaign. Although government attorneys have the legal right to donate to presidential candidates, Weissman’s choice indicates his Democratic party preference. This is fine – unless or until that preference sways his professional decisions.

A recent report from The Wall Street Journal indicates that Weissman was among the attendees at the Hillary Clinton election night concession party at the Jacob K. Javits Center in New York City – if you call that a party. This revelation has provoked outrage among the House Judiciary Committee.

Republican Rep. Steve Chabot called “the depths of this anti-Trump bias on” the special counsel’s team “absolutely shocking,” according to Business Insider.

The Democrats’ reply is…predictable. Again, from Business Insider:

“‘I predict that these attacks on the FBI will grow louder and more brazen as the special counsel does his work, and the walls close in around the president, and evidence of his obstruction and other misdeeds becomes more apparent,'” Rep. Jerrold Nadler of New York, recently promoted to ranking member of the House Judiciary Committee, said.”

Given these two completely opposing views, history will bear witness as to which side is telling patriotic truths and which is consumed with treasonous lies. We may not have long to wait.

    Politics is the name of the game. Entrenched political protegees/appointees have other ulterior motives other than conducting
    an unbiased and credible investigation.

    Andrew Weissmann is a partisan left wing Jew with zero integrity. He employes half truths and innuendo instead of fact . He is a legal pariah unfit for serving as an assistant prosecutor. Robert Mueller is little better. Two partisan hacks.

    I do not believe it is unreasonable to expect some sort of balance in a group investigating the so-called Russian collusion and interference. It would probably be impossible to find anyone without a bias, but you can have people from both sides in an investigation.

    The whole PURPOSE of this with hunt (not an investigation at all ) was somehow find, concoct, lie. trigger, force , manipulate the public opinion in order to cook up charges against Pres. Trump and impeach him no matter what! Well, FBI doesn’t loo too good those days , does it ? And I am not talking about the agents but the VERY STINKY individuals at the top present and Former INCLUDING MUELLER…..failing to direct their effort to protect public and prevent massacres instead of concocting political stew!

      The F – orever B – reeding I – nsurrection has become the enemy of the people; they have purposely allowed by malfeasance and complicity in the ongoing false-flag shootings that are occurring at an alarming pace! Time after time the (supposed) shooters were on their radar but they always seem to slip through their fingers – BS, it is by design in order to bring about the New World Order that is their goal! WTFU SHEEPLE, your being played as a fine fiddle! It is all about gun control, the last hill to climb; they had it set up for Killory to kill “US” off but Divine Intervention saved us, for the time being. God is waiting to see if we put a stop to the killing of His souls through abortion and if PP is not defunded then R.I.P. USA – guaranteed!

    Your article is “Anti-Semitic” and should be removed.
    Why do you hate Jews?

    The FBI does not look good at the top, nor apparently at the bottom either, after the revelation of having been informed of the shooter in the latest shooting. They got information from a party very close to Cruse on Jan 5 and did nothing. Still think the FBI is arrogant top to bottom and has never lost its J. Edgar Hoover style. They can not even cooperate with local law enforcement. they look down their noses at them.

    Weissman is just one more piece in the laughingly obvious charade by the Demonocrats and Deep State to stave off the Swamp-draining that is underway by our President and his few real allies in Congress. The Left’s many glaringly obvious transgressions are ignored while they nitpick anything and everything that the Right does. Think about the easily provable illegal activities and crimes of Obozo, Shrillery, Holder, Loretta Lynch, the FBI, DOJ, NSA, CIA and all their Leftist evil minions during the last eight years that the fake news MSM ignores and sweeps under the rug, whilst they lie their asses off about Trump. I only wish the conservative Republicans would start to play hardball and turn around the Left’s dirty tricks on them! At the same time the vast amount of right-thinking patriots in “fly-over states” should boycott the MSM media (TV and newspapers) to drive them out of business, and vote Republican in the upcoming midterm elections to establish a huge majority in both houses of Congress. It’s a huge dirty job, but somebody (besides the President) has to do it !!

    It appears Weissmann learned a lot from the mob bosses he prosecuted. It is amazing he was not disbarred years ago.

    One should never forget that the FBI are government employees (I hesitate to use the word “workers”). As with most government employees they have long forgotten that they are employees of the tax paying citizens . Government agencies are best known for their inefficiencies.

    FBI fkd up,biased ,and incompetent. They are responsible for 17 deaths in Florida. Maybe they should spend more time and effort on protecting citizens than persecuting conservatives and others they disagree with politically .The leadership evidently spent a lot of time kissing the Clinton’s rear ends.
