Robert Mueller is on the warpath and won’t stop until he ends at Trump.
To do so, he has pulled together a team of elite lawyers to help in his investigation.
But there is one disgusting fact about someone on his legal team that will leave you sick.
Andrew Weissmann has a shady past.
While the media has pushed him as having “unimpeachable ethics,” he has some skeletons in his closet that beg to differ.
For example, while investigating Ben Glisan, the cover-boy for Andrew Fastow—the CFO of Enron, Weissmann’s conduct put his character into account.
Fastow was guilty for his part in a get-rich-quick scheme that was orchestrated by Fastow.
For that reason, Fastow pled guilty to a five year count, and expected to just serve his time.
Weissmann didn’t let that happen, he was angry that he refused to “cooperate” with him to give more information.
So Weissmann charged him quickly with 26 counts, and had federal authorities throw him into solitary confinement for almost 2 weeks before sending him to serve time with the general prison population.
As reported by The Daily Caller:
“Mr. Weissmann has been portrayed recently as having “unimpeachable ethics” and as “the prosecutor you would want” if your family member was innocent. He was extolled for having “a hunch” that a former treasurer of Enron was “willing to say more” and would “cooperate.”
But what do the cases and indisputable facts show?
Let’s start with Mr. Weissmann’s “hunch” that young Enron treasurer Ben Glisan was ready to “cooperate.” Mr. Glisan was about 30 years old when Enron CFO Andrew Fastow — then a cover-boy for CFO Magazine — conned Glisan into one of Fastow’s fraudulent get-rich-quick schemes.
Mr. Glisan was an easy squeeze for prosecutors like Mr. Weissmann who honed for their own uses the tactics of organized crime bosses they convicted. Ben Glisan had made a fast million dollars, had a young family, and he was guilty. Weissmann charged him quickly with an onerous 26 counts. Mr. Glisan pleaded guilty to a five-year count and just wanted to do his time. The problem was he refused to “cooperate” with Mr. Weissmann.
Federal authorities took Mr. Glisan to prison. He was placed straight into solitary confinement — a hole of a cell with a slit for light and barely enough room to stand. Men far tougher than Ben Glisan will tell you that 24 hours in solitary confinement can drive a man insane.
Mr. Weissmann and his Enron Task Force left Mr. Glisan in solitary for almost two weeks. The broken Ben Glisan then faced hardened criminals in the daily prison population. That is how Mr. Weissmann got that “hunch.””
This information puts Weissmann—and the rest of the Russia collusion investigation—into question.
When dealing with a highly politicized investigation like this, can someone with such a shady past be trusted?
