Top Mueller Prosecutor to Publish 'Inside Account' of Russia Probe in New Book

Share

One of former Special Counsel Robert Mueller‘s leading attorneys, Andrew Weissmann, will publish a new book about the inner workings of the Russia investigation in late September.

The book is titled “Where Law Ends: Inside the Mueller Investigation” and the Amazon blurb reads, “In the first and only inside account of the Mueller investigation, one of the special counsel’s most trusted prosecutors breaks his silence on the team’s history-making search for the truth, their painstaking deliberations and costly mistakes, and Trump’s unprecedented efforts to stifle their report.”

Weissmann was a leading prosecutor in the investigation, which was known for being especially clandestine and leak-proof.

Over the weekend, Weissmann criticized President Trump’s decision to commute Roger Stone’s sentence, agreeing with Senator Mitt Romney’s take that the move represented “unprecedented, historic corruption.”

In a statement, Weissmann said “I felt it was necessary to record this episode in our history, as seen and experienced by an insider.”

The prosecutor added, “This is the story of our investigation into how our democracy was attacked by Russia and how those who condoned and ignored that assault undermined our ability to uncover the truth. My obligation as a prosecutor was to follow the facts where they led, using all available tools and undeterred by the onslaught of the president’s unique powers to undermine our work.”

Mueller also broke his silence over the weekend in a Washington Post column, writing, “We made every decision in Stone’s case, as in all our cases, based solely on the facts and the law and in accordance with the rule of law. The women and men who conducted these investigations and prosecutions acted with the highest integrity.”

Weissmann previously raised eyebrows when he was scheduled to appear at a fundraiser with Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, though his name was later dropped from the event.
