Revealed: Key Mueller Team Prosecutor Praised Sally Yates’ Refusal to Enforce Trump Travel Order

Revealed: Key Mueller Team Prosecutor Praised Sally Yates’ Refusal to Enforce Trump Travel Order

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

Judicial Watch released emails from the Department of Justice today and some of them showed support for former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates when she refused to support President Donald Trump’s travel restrictions from some Middle East countries.

It sounds like no big deal, right? Well, it turns out one of the supporters is Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Deputy Andrew Weissman. He is one of the top prosecutors in Mueller’s investigation into possible collusion between Trump’s campaign and Russia.

On January 27, shortly after the inauguration, Trump issued a travel order on several Middle East countries. Yates demanded the DOJ not to defend the executive order on January 30. Trump fired her for her actions later that day.

Weissmann, who worked as the Chief of the Justice Department’s Criminal Fraud Section, emailed Yates:

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

As you can see, Yates forwarded it to her personal email address. Weissmann sent the email a little after Trump fired her. He was not part of the Mueller probe, yet. Judicial Watch President Tom Fitton blasted the find:

“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,” stated Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. “How much more evidence do we need that the Mueller operation has been irredeemably compromised by anti-Trump partisans? Shut it down.”

The New York Times published an article in October that described how the indictment of Trump’s former campaign chairman Paul Manafort set the tone for the investigation.

The article mentions Weissman:

Admirers of Andrew Weissmann, one of the team’s senior prosecutors, describe him as relentless and uncompromising, while his detractors say his scorched earth tactics have backfired in some previous cases. Greg B. Andres, another one of Mr. Mueller’s prosecutors, once ran an investigation into a Mafia kingpin. Zainab N. Ahmad made her name as a prosecutor pursing high-profile terrorism cases.

Records show that Weissmann is a Democratic donor, giving $6,600 combined to former President Barack Obama and failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton.

This is another black eye for Mueller’s investigation. We found out over the weekend that Mueller removed an FBI agent from the investigation over the summer for sending anti-Trump messages. Yesterday, we discovered that this agent, Peter Strzok, is also the man who changed former FBI Director James Comey’s description of Hillary’s handling of classified information from “grossly negligence” to “extremely careless.”

Reports today show that Mueller’s investigation cost taxpayers almost $7 million between May 17 and September 30.


Donations tax deductible
to the full extent allowed by law.


It’s like Whack-a-Mole, only with rats.

But a rat at Weissmann’s level wouldn’t be likely to give away his position with such a frivolous and unproductive e-mail.

So I think I maybe smell a rat fake.

    So in other words: “He couldn’t possibly be *that* stupid.”

    Sorry. He was.

      Or putting on a show of outrageous behavior, to goad Trump into doing something they hope is unwise.

      nope not stupid just sectarian and determines to hurt the voters who wanted a change in this country.

      and now that we are in danger from all the stupidities of leading with his behind – NORK, IRAN etc leaving the ship of state rudderless, Muleass is being found out for the psrtisan he always was!

    This wasn’t wikileaks, it’s the result of a FOIA request. The email is 100% real.

It hasn’t been surprising to learn that the NeverTrumpers cheering section is in the FBI.

Trump needs to ORDER the appointment of another special prosecutor to investigate Mueller and his entire team.

“This is another black eye for Mueller’s investigation.”

Another Black Eye, the man has run out of eyes to be blackened. As a matter of fact if I was Dana Loesch I might Tweet out that Mueller and his whole team need a good FISKING!

what about Judicial Watch’s other 2 reveals??

1) Published Top FBI Leaders Using illegal PRIVATE Email Accounts?? this is a FOIA felony when found to be intentional

2) Trump Deranged FBI Agent Strzok interviewed then SoS Hillary’s DoS top aides who were later caught lying.. with NO Charges unlike Flynn

    looks like Strzok needs to be charged with corruption, favoritism and political interference in the justice department.

It’s almost like one of the requirements for being on the team is a past history of bad mouthing Trump, lol.

She and Lerner must be twins.

We need a special counsel to investigate the special counsel.

Not to mention Obama/Clinton/DNC/press collusion with foreign and domestic assets and that post-coup government in Kiev in order to deny civil rights and disenfranchise Americans.

Sally Yeats’ behavior was lawless, but Andrew Weissmann’s documented career is criminal in nature.

Strzok’s behavior was likely criminal, and Mueller covered it up from Congress, which is why Nunes is now taking action for contempt, and arranging an outcome “with teeth.”

Ahut down Mueller, prosecute all of these liars.

One word: Giglio

It’s past time to shut down Mueller. Re-open the Clinton investigation and let the chips fall where they may.

    Again, I’m not a lawyer but it seems to me that any grants of immunity given under color of corruption are null and void.

Why does Yates look like a flesh colored preying mantis?

When thinking of the D.C. bubble is to remember that a “Congress” is also the name for a gathering of Baboons.

It would be interesting to see exactly where this money is going. I have little faith in Democrats not to embezzle. It would also be interesting to see who is double dipping on salary, getting paid their government wage while also getting paid from the special prosecutor’s budget.

Arrest and prosecute the deep state traitors.

If this is to be a real, bona fide witch hunt, then why is Hillary not involved in it? She’s the one true witch in Washington.
