A top prosecutor on the special counsel’s team is criticizing the investigation and Robert Mueller for not going hard enough against Donald Trump, saying in a new book that prosecutors “could have done more” in their probe of the president.
“Had we given it our all — had we used all available tools to uncover the truth, undeterred by the onslaught of the president’s unique powers to undermine our efforts?” Andrew Weissmann writes in the introduction of his forthcoming book, according to The Atlantic.
“I know the hard answer to that simple question: We could have done more.”
Weissmann, who was labeled Mueller’s “pitbull” by some Trump supporters, also told The Atlantic that Mueller let down the American public.
