Special counsel Robert Mueller’s right-hand man, Andrew Weissmann, was accused of using “corrupt legal practices,” and withholding evidence in a previous case involving the Colombo crime family, reports Fox News contributor Sara A. Carter.
The top attorney in Robert Mueller’s Special Counsel’s office was reported to the Department of Justice’s Inspector General by a lawyer representing whistleblowers for alleged “corrupt legal practices” nearly a decade before the 2016 presidential election, this reporter has learned. […]
Civil rights and criminal defense attorney David Schoen, was the lawyer who reported Weissmann. Schoen met with Inspector General Michael Horowitz and several FBI officials to discuss Weismann in 2015. […]
The case against the Colombo crime family in the late 1990s involved Theodore Persico, who was convicted of conspiracy to commit murder, loan sharking, racketeering and firearms charges. Persico was the brother of Colombo boss Carmine Persico, Jr, and the network was one of five major Italian mafia organizations operating out of New York.
The judge who handled many of the cases ruled that the jury should be told and many of the “defendants were found not guilty. So, for DOJ to claim this was cumulative or material to the defense is really unfair and misleading,” stated Schoen.
“The FBI had to redo their whole guidelines on the use of informants over this,” said Schoen. “Weissmann and crew did not just withhold evidence. They actively allowed a mafia killer to remain on the street killing.”
Paul Sperry of the New York Post reported last month that Weissmann is under investigation for “media leaks.”
