From the invaluable Judicial Watch, we have this:
Judicial Watch today released two productions (335 pages and 44 pages) of Justice Department (DOJ) documents showing strong support by top DOJ officials for former Acting Attorney General Sally Yates’ refusal to enforce President Trump’s Middle East travel ban executive order. In one email, Andrew Weissmann, one of Robert Mueller’s top prosecutors and formerly the Obama-era Chief of the Justice Department’s Criminal Fraud Section, applauds Yates writing: “I am so proud. And in awe. Thank you so much. All my deepest respects.”
Judicial Watch obtained the documents through a May 2017 Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit filed after the Justice Department failed to respond to a February FOIA request seeking Yates’ emails from her government account (Judicial Watch v. U.S. Department of Justice (No. 1:17-cv-00832)) for the time period she served as Acting Attorney General for President Trump.
The emails, several sent from official Justice Department email addresses, show strong support for Yates, who was fired for disobeying a direct order from the President.
In other words, Andrew Weismann, one of Mueller’s key people in an already Democrat-stacked staff, specifically reveled, on the record, about his support for an illegal insurrection against Donald Trump which caused the person responsible for it to be summarily fired.
This is who is investigating Trump? Could that be more of a joke? Could that be a clearer demonstration that this is not an investigation, it’s a star chamber?
We have an “investigation” headed by a close personal friend of fired, disgruntled, ex-FBI Director James Comey, based on an unverified dossier put together by foreign nationals and paid for by Trump’s opponent, Hillary Clinton, and stacked with Democrat donors, including several who specifically donated money to Clinton. And now we find this out about Weissmann.
Every day this farce continues is a stain on the integrity of law enforcement and judicial integrity. I wouldn’t blame President Trump for shutting it down at any time of his choosing.
And while it is true that media will howl with indignation if he does? So what? They howl with indignation at everything he does. Their own overplayed partisanship, therefore, has resulted in Trump having no downside to making such a decision.
