Top Mueller Prosecutor: We Could Have Done More In The Russia Investigation
Andrew Weissmann, one of special counsel Robert Mueller’s top counselors, is publishing a book that is intended to provide an insider view to the Russia investigation, according to the Washington Examiner.
- The book is set to be published on September 29th, less than two months before the presidential election. Weissmann said in a statement about his new book:
“I felt it was necessary to record this episode in our history, as seen and experienced by an insider. This is the story of our investigation into how our democracy was attacked by Russia and how those who condoned and ignored that assault undermined our ability to uncover the truth. My obligation as a prosecutor was to follow the facts where they led, using all available tools and undeterred by the onslaught of the president’s unique powers to undermine our work."
- He went on to say:
“I am deeply proud of the work we did and of the unprecedented number of people we indicted and convicted — and in record speed. But the hard truth is that we made mistakes. We could have done more. Where Law Ends documents the choices we made, good and bad, for all to see and judge and learn from.”
- Weissmann, described as Mueller’s “pit-bull” during the Russia investigation, was instrumental in helping win convictions against former Trump campaign officials Paul Manafort and Rick Gates.
- Weissman has long criticized President Trump and his administration, while in return President Trump has deemed the Mueller investigation a “witch hunt.”
