Mueller team under fire for 'brass-knuckle' tactics in bid to squeeze Manafort.

This is worth a read. Want to know about the guys Robert Mueller has working for him? Fox News took at look at one of them.


While Mueller has assembled a large team, one of its most prominent investigators is former U.S. attorney Weissmann, who had overseen a series of controversial prosecutions that ultimately resulted in dismissed convictions and formal allegations of prosecutorial misconduct.

For example, when Weissmann was leading the Enron Task Force, he sent former Merrill Lynch executive William Fuhs to a maximum-security prison in Oklahoma, 700 miles from his wife and two small children in Denver.

Fuhs spent the next year behind bars before being released on bail. The Fifth Circuit Court of Appeals later ruled that there was no evidence upon which a reasonable jury could find that he violated the law, and his conviction was vacated.

...

Weissmann also helped prosecute Anderson Consulting, which led to a conviction of the firm, its eventual closure and the loss of 28,000 thousand employees. In a highly unusual unanimous decision, the Supreme Court later overturned and dismissed that conviction as well.

“That was a tremendous example of horrifying prosecutorial misconduct,” [Houston attorney Tom] Kirkendall said. Weissmann, at the time, denied there had been any intimidation of witnesses. ''There is no factual basis'' to the allegation, he said in 2002. ''It is just not true.''

Former federal prosecutor Sidney Powell was so outraged after a case involving Weissmann that, in 2012, she filed a formal complaint of prosecutorial misconduct with the Texas bar and the DOJ’s Office of Professional Responsibility. The complaint alleged witness threatening, withholding exculpatory evidence, and the use of “false and misleading summaries.” After reviewing the complaint, the Obama administration’s OPR found no ethical violations

Now a defense attorney in Asheville, N.C., she wrote a book about the experience, called “Licensed to Lie.” She still maintains Weissmann and his task force “made up a crime,” alleging the team gave the defendants “false and misleading summaries of what witnesses had told the government.”

Powell sees similar tactics with the Manafort probe. They will do whatever it takes to nail him. Instead of investigating crimes, they’re trying to pin stuff on him,” she said.


Meet the Swamp's prosecuting attorney. But hey, it's OK because Trump! Russia! right?

Men like Manafort define the Washington swamp. Rumor has it he is already indicted. And the information is sealed. These criminals are all going to fall. One by one. Traitors, all of them.

Sure sounds like the legal system I know in America...

Makes sense that's the type of people that he would pick for his team considering the goal it seems that's being pushed. This all started with a very narrow scope and has been expanded all along the way until we have arrived at a point where the mission seems to be lets find anything possible to pin on him so we don't eventually all look like chumps.

And if the people that were prosecuted had been brown Fox would have claimed that Weissmann was just doing his job and that these judges were just trying to legislate from the bench.

Mueller is a member of the Episcopal Church. Better known as Communist for Christ. Sort of a common factor with the sort of "conservatives" that the Bush family surrounded themselves with. Mueller was beloved by Obama and helped hand pick Comey for the job.

It's comical how many Republicans are closet "progressives", and no one ever seems to catch on. The game is rigged. That is why all of them are so angry about Trump. He de-rigged their rigging. I for one hope he continues to be successful. Love Trump or hate him, he is actually the first agent of CHANGE that has happened in the USA in a very very long time.

Let's look at the 2 of the cases mentioned. Fuhs conviction was overturned by the Appeals Court because they thought there wasn't sufficient evidence to convict (even though a jury thought so, I guess activist courts are A-Ok when they can be used a cudjel). Andersen Consulting decision was overturned by the Supreme Court due to vague jury instructions. So blame the judge in that case.

lol You guys kill me...Strong arm tactics? If it's against someone that you don't agree with, it's perfectly fine. If it's against someone you actually dote on and could never find any fault in...no matter what...boo-hoo "strong arm."


For example, when Weissmann was leading the Enron Task Force, he sent former Merrill Lynch executive William Fuhs to a maximum-security prison in Oklahoma, 700 miles from his wife and two small children in Denver.


Good...didn't Enron comprise itself of defrauding thousands of stockholders...and sending a guy that was complicit in this fraud is "strong arm?" What about the people that lost their life savings? Sorry.

Let them do their job...if they find something, let them prosecute it. If they find nothing, let them go back to doing something else.

By very narrow you mean completely wide open?


any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation


Source Document

Anything he uncovers is fair game.

Guess you forgot how this all started around a year ago...I can understand...it has been quite a while. When this started there was a very narrow scope under investigation. That was did Trumps team work with Russia to subvert the election. Now as you say...they're literally looking for anything. What president in history has had to endure this kind of treatment. Not a single one but Trump...

You haven't even got started on this, there's a lot, lot more.

Why do you think when the Chief of Counter-Intelligence and the head of America's premier spy catching organization resigned only after a few weeks. He uncovered just how much of a sham and fraud the whole investigation was and for doing his patriotic duty he was busted down and reassigned to Human Resources. Where he will now for the most part never be heard from again.

Hammer time hell, Junta time


What say you Dewey ?

I gave you the source document that gives Mueller the power he has. If they FIND anything else in the course of the investigation he can pursue it. Does a investigator that finds a body during an burglary investigation just ignore the body? Does a money laundering investigator ignore where the money is going/coming and only focus on the one person?

Bill Clinton or do you think Kenn Star just started on Lewinski?

It's good to see you guys getting ready to point the finger in the event that Trump is charged with an actual crime.

Of course. Would you expect anything less?

Your title is misleading You claim to speak about the legal team, yet, your source only speaks of one person.

With that kind of disrespect for the truth, who can trust anything in the OP?

How the Bar didnt strip him of his ability to practice law after those incidents blows my mind. Corrupt country needs to be destroyed and rebuilt

Yep. And they don't care if they tear down America to do it.

Fortunately, there aren't very many of them left. Trump is about as popular as acne.
