History of Robert Mueller and Andrew Weissman - Point of View - Point of View

What proof is there that Weissman took bribes?

Haven’t you been following what Sara Carter has been reporting about him?

Another drive-by-posting?

One of the most common funders of DOJ employee trips was the American Bar Association, the main trade group for criminal and civil lawyers who, on a daily basis, tangle in court with federal prosecutors.

ABA was listed more than three dozen times as the paying sponsor for trips, sometimes landing some big fish in the DOJ hierarchy. Then-Deputy Assistant Attorney General Trevor McFadden reported more than $3,000 in free travel, lodging and meals picked up by the ABA for an October 2017 trip to a white-collar crime conference in London.

Just weeks later, McFadden was confirmed to be a federal judge in Washington DC.

Some DOJ officials have a bigger penchant from junkets than others. Take, for example, Andrew Weissmann, the head of DOJ fraud section and the current deputy to special counsel Robert Mueller in the investigation of Russia’s influence on our 2016 election.

Weissmann reported accepting more than a half-dozen free trips between 2016 and 2018, all in the United States and none necessarily to glamorous locations, though Miami wasn’t necessarily a bad place for a junket in March 2017, or San Diego the March before that.

His hosts ranged from New York University and Rutgers Law School to the Practising Law Institute in New York, the ABA and a private law firm, his reports show.

DOJ and FBI officials defend the trips, saying any travel gratuities are approved in advance by supervisors and governed by strict ethics rules.

“In furtherance of the FBI’s mission and in the course of their duties, FBI employees routinely travel and participate in public forums in an official capacity,” the bureau said in a statement to me. “At a minimum, all such travel and speaking engagements are authorized by the employee’s direct supervisor and can receive further authorization all the way up to the relevant division head, along with an ethics official determination. Additionally, all FBI personnel are bound by the Standards of Ethical Conduct for Employees of the Executive Branch.”

One thing the FBI statement didn’t say, though, is that the bureau is one of the least transparent agencies within DOJ in disclosing special-interest junkets. It refuses to name the agents who took trips, saying the omission is designed to protect their identities.

One problem with that argument: the agents’ names are on the dockets of these events and their hosts often share their pictures and words on social media. Seems like adding their names to the ethics reports would be a win for transparency.

One of the most expensive trips reported over the last three years involved an FBI employee, in fact. Though the name was redacted, we know that the bureau employee reported more than $7,000 in comped travel expenses earlier this year to go to Buenos Aires, Argentina, to speak to a real estate conference on behalf of the global auction house Christie’s.

Want to guess the month? If you picked wintry February, you’d be right. That’s when the temperature on Buenos Aires’ legendary beaches tops out in the mid-80s.
