A list of problematic lawyers on Meuller's team


There are 15 publicly identified lawyers employed by Meuller for his Trump investigation witch-hunt. Nine of them are Democratic donors. Below is a list of those that have had political bias exposed. See also Sharyll Attkisson's list of FBI officials; her list is slightly broader since it is not limited to those on Meuller's team.
James Baker (FBI General Counsel): removed from his office, presumably due to his communications with a reporter who published information about the dossier shortly after their contact.

Peter Strzok: ejected from the team for sending over 10,000 anti-Trump text messages to his mistress. He was head of counterintelligence at FBI, changed "gross negligence" (which would be criminal) to "extreme careless" (which might not be) in Comey's Hillary exoneration speech, and personally signed the paperwork initiating the Trump-Russia investigation. He may have submitted one or both of the two FISA warrants seeking permission to use our intelligence agencies to spy on the Trump campaign. He was one of two agents who interviewed Flynn, who later pled guilty to lying in that interview. The FBI Inspector General is investigating his involvement in the Clinton email investigation. Part of his involvement in that case was, yes, interviewing Hillary Clinton... who was not charged for her absurd lies during that interview. It also appears he was the source for at least some articles on the Trump-Russia matter in the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal.

Lisa Page: Strzok's mistress and an FBI lawyer on loan to Meuller. Her presumed participation in the texts with Strzok taints her, and makes me ask why she wasn't also reassigned -- unless Strzok did something worse than what we already know, and the texts are just an excuse. Current speculation is that Page may have been involved in approving Strzok's warrant requests. It appears she was the source for at least some articles on the Trump-Russia matter in the Washington Post and Wall Street Journal.

Text messages between Strzok and Page can be found here.

LP – And maybe you’re meant to stay where you are because you’re meant to protect the country from that menace. (links to NYT article)
PS – ... I can protect our country at many levels, not sure if that helps

The same text messages also swept in Deputy Director Andrew McCabe“Some of these texts appear to go beyond merely expressing a private political opinion, and appear to cross the line into taking some official action to create an ‘insurance policy’ against a Trump presidency,” Grassley wrote Thursday. “Presumably, ‘Andy’ refers to Deputy FBI Director Andrew McCabe. So whatever was being discussed extended beyond just Page and Strzok at least to Mr. McCabe, who was involved in supervising both investigations.”


Bruce Ohr: Met with Steele (the dossier author) before the election and then Simpson (head of GPS Fusion, the opposition research firm Hillary and the DNC paid to create the dossier) after the election. His wife worked at Fusion GPS during the relevant time period, on the dossier, and officials at DOJ claim they were not aware of his contacts. (Seriously? His wife worked there!)

Aaron Zebley: represented Justin Cooper, the sysadmin of Hillary's private server.

Weissmann: Wrote embarrassingly fangirlish email to Sally Yates after Trump fired her for refusing to implement his travel ban.

Jeannie Rhee: Maximum donor to Hillary Clinton in 2015 and 2016. Donated $16,000 to Democrats in general since 2008. Represented Obama's deputy national security advisor Ben Rhodes personally and also represented the Clinton Foundation.

Goldstein: Worked under Preet Bharara, who became a Trump critic after Trump asked him to resign his US Attorney position following the election. The posts are political appointees and seeking resignations is normal following a change of power in Washington, but Bharara took it badly. (This is the weakest charge of bias in the bunch, admittedly).
