Institutional Bias – Mueller Top Deputy Praises Sally Yates Insubordination of President Trump…

More evidence of the institutional bias amid the top-tier of the FBI and DOJ surfaces today when Judicial Watch receives emails sent from Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s top deputy Andrew Weissmann to former DOJ head Sally Yates.

On the night Acting Deputy Attorney General Sally Yates refused to uphold the President Trump travel and VISA restrictions Andrew Weissmann (pictured below) praised her insubordination and thanked her for undermining the President:

Sally Yates was fired that night for her refusal to defend the administration travel and VISA restrictions.  Andrew Weissmann is the top deputy for Robert Mueller’s current Russian Election Conspiracy investigation.

The Injustice League

(Washington, DC) – 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:

  • Thomas Delahanty, then the United States Attorney for Maine wrote: “You are my hero.”
  • Liz Aloi, a career service employee and Chief of the Justice Department’s Special Financial Investigations Unit told Yates she was “Inspirational and heroic.”
  • Emily Gray Rice, then the U.S. Attorney for New Hampshire and an Obama appointee said: “AAG Yates, thank you, as always, for making us proud. It is truly an honor to work for you.”
  • Obama appointee Barbara McQuade, U.S. Attorney for the Eastern District of Michigan told Yates, “Thank you for your courage and leadership. This is wonderful news.”
  • DOJ Civil Division Appellate Attorney Jeffrey Clair wrote: “Thank you AG Yates. I’ve been in civil/appellate for 30 years and have never seen an administration with such contempt for democratic values and the rule of law. The President’s order is an unconstitutional embarrassment and I applaud you for taking a principled stand against defending it.”

“This is an astonishing and disturbing find. Andrew Weisman, a key prosecutor on Robert Mueller’s team, praised Obama DOJ holdover Sally Yates after she lawlessly thwarted President Trump,” stated Judicial Watch president Tom Fitton. “How much more evidence do we need that the Mueller operation has been irredeemably compromised by anti-Trump partisans? Shut it down.”  (read more)

    I’ve never seen K St., and don’t know what it looks like. I imagine it’s pretty nice.
    But I have a fantasy of about a million deplorables, looking like the rubes and hicks they, the people who populate K St. think we are. The deplorables are all milling around the pristine streets there, having fun, acting as if they belong. The deplorables all have hand-made signs, “Sewer rats work here’, ‘We are sick of this, end it now!’ ‘Drain the Swamp’, ‘There are more of us than you’, ‘Thank you President Trump’, ‘We love you President Trump’, etc, plus hundreds of thousands of MAGA signs.
    The same thing happens at the Capitol, and the White House.
    Oh well, I can dream can’t I? I truly am tired of this and want it to end. And I think it will take more from us, the people to really turn on the rats and demand they stop what they are doing. And let President Trump get on with Making America Great Again.

    This SC is the Democrat circus many of us suspected it was. When they said Mueller was hiring Hillary supporters, it was for real. When is Mueller going to give up now that he has been exposed with hiring these radicals? I hope somehow there is restitution for Flynn, out of all their taxpayer funded special counsel salaries for this witch hunt.

Peddling influence and them daring to venture into a new administration having served so many years even as a “general”. He knew he was poison.

      As soon as Trump walked down the stairs on June 16th, 2015 to make his announcement so many people said that he was going to lose.. And then they said that the lawsuits after the election would cause him to lose his electoral votes, etc, etc. But Trump just keeps on winning.

      Just keep the faith and ignore the fake news mainstream media. President Trump is not going to announce his battle plan, but know he is taking secret steps to transform the federal beast. In other cases Trump is just allowing the opposition to self destruct. Watch a little Hannity because he has some inside information on what will be coming out. Just have some patience and sit back and enjoy the fact that Trump is the President and continues to win again and again.

Well, sorry, it failed the first time and will fail again You should didn’t fuss much about Bubba and since he set up the Slush Fund, was it OUR money that paid off Paula or his? Somehow I think since he is a democrat it probably was our tax money. You have to give them credit for being stupid time after time and losing big time. They truly are the deplorables and brainless to boot! Every time they try to bring Trump down they wind up finding more and more difficulties/problems/creeps who are democrat losers big time. Now even Conyers has resigned (can only retire at end of term) and supposedly paying us back for what he paid out. AND no way would we vote for his son – the acorn doesn’t fall far from the oak tree – and he can’t appoint him, so I thanked God again today for what is unfolding bit by bit. Now see McConnell and Ryan supporting Moore so I guess they got the message from Trump that they better do so.

    First with J Edgar Hoover, whom led the FBI for 35 years, from wikipedia: “Later in life and after his death, Hoover became a controversial figure as evidence of his secretive abuses of power began to surface. He was found to have exceeded the jurisdiction of the FBI,[1] and to have used the FBI to harass political dissenters and activists, to amass secret files on political leaders,[2] and to collect evidence using illegal methods.[3] Hoover consequently amassed a great deal of power and was in a position to intimidate and threaten sitting presidents.[4]”

    When you take a step back to think of all the leaks and breaking news items we have been bombarded with over the last two weeks, the twists and turns are too many to enumerate, too frequent to keep up with and too shocking to be believable. What this may mean is the tipping point has been reached. The liberals have thrown everything they’ve got at Trump trying to resist him, to stop his agenda and embarrass him politically and none of it is working.

    After listening to Fox News talking heads regurgitate the WSJ piece calling for Mueller to step aside, the long awaited Trump offensive is underway. Mueller is done. My guess is Nunes will go to Ryan soon to request that the SC’s funding be stopped.
