D.C Rumor That Someone on the Mueller Team May Have Flipped to John Durham
Rumor swirling around the Washington D.C swamp is that one of the individuals on the Mueller Team has flipped to U.S attorney John Durham, who is investigating the origins of the Russia probe and the spygate scandal
From Red State:
This rumor follows on the heels of the release last week of records showing several members of the Special Counsel’s Office “wiped” their SCO issued cell phones clean on one or more occasions.
In his book, which was released two days ago, Andrew Weissmann covers this question, writing that Jeannie Rhee cautioned everyone that everything they committed to writing during their work for the SCO would be subject to a later “investigation of the investigators” that was sure to follow, based on her years of experience working in Washington DC.
JUST SPECULATING, but Weissmann has been agitated almost from the moment he took to Twitter a few months ago over the investigation being conducted by Durham and AG Barr. But his agitation went into overdrive when U.S. Attorney Jensen began looking at the SCO’s handling of the prosecution of General Flynn.
It cannot be overlooked that while most of the more senior DOJ “veterans” on the SCO went to lucrative careers in private practice after departing, several of the younger members of the SCO returned to positions in the Department of Justice. That means they have been subject to potential investigation by internal DOJ disciplinary offices like the Inspector General or Office of Professional Responsibility. Issues like “wiping” their SCO issued phones without authorization, and likely in violation of DOJ policy might not mean much to Andrew Weissmann and Jeannie Rhee, but for younger attorneys still in DOJ like Brandon Van Grack, Aaron Zelinsky, and Adam Jed, their DOJ careers might hang in the balance — and potentially their licenses to practice law. It is possible they were directed or encouraged to take some actions they now regret, or for which they are now vulnerable to leverage by Durham or other government investigators.
