Mueller’s Deputy in Russia Probe Cheered Sally Yates for Bucking Trump Travel Ban
DECEMBER 06, 2017
Since the very beginning of the Mueller investigation into possible collusion between Russia and the Trump campaign and transition teams, some have raised concerns that Robert Mueller may not be entirely unbiased.
A top prosecutor who is now a deputy for Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s Russia probe praised outgoing acting Attorney General Sally Yates after she was fired in January by President Trump for refusing to defend his controversial travel ban.
The email, obtained by Judicial Watch through a federal lawsuit, shows that on the night of Jan. 30, Andrew Weissmann wrote to Yates under the subject line, “I am so proud.”
