It’s official: yes, Special Counsel Robert Mueller is having an awful, terrible, no-good very bad day! It looks like Hillary’s pet is not only going to loose his credibility, but he might loose more than that… In yet another shocking turn, a third member of his Russia investigative team is facing questions over potential bias. It turns out that she used to represent Ben Rhodes, a former aid for Barack Obama. It has been revealed that the team member also has strong ties to the Clinton Foundation as well.
Jeannie Rhee is a former partner at WilmerHale, a high-profile law firm where Mr. Mueller worked prior to his role as special counsel.
Check it out, per BizPac Review:
Rhee, who specialized in government investigations and white-collar criminal probes, represented Obama Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes during the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s investigation into the 2012 Benghazi attack, Fox News reports.
Rhee also represented the Clinton Foundation in 2015, when conservative activist group Freedom Watch filed a racketeering lawsuit against the suspect foundation. Additionally, Rhee represented Hillary Clinton in a lawsuit that sought access to her private emails.
Rhee’s husband, Christopher Sclafani, is a lawyer who has worked with prominent Democrats, including serving as a special assistant to then-Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder and as counsel to Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL).
In her role with the Special Counsel team, Rhee focuses on claims that President Trump committed obstruction of justice by firing James Comey as FBI director.
The revelation comes on the heels of the revelation that Mueller removed FBI agent Peter Strzok from the Russia probe over anti-Trump texts he sent to his mistress and colleague, attorney Lisa Page.
Andrew Weissmann has also been accused of bias for sending then-outgoing acting Attorney General Sally Yates a praise-filled email after she refused to defend President Trump’s travel ban.
Campaign donation records show that Rhee donated a total of $5,400 to Clinton in 2015 and 2016, and $4,800 to Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2011. Weissmann donated a combined $2,300 to Obama’s campaign in 2008.
So, what do you think? Are Robert Mueller and his witch hunt through?
