One of the most prominent members of Robert Mueller’s special counsel team, who has since become an MSNBC legal analyst, will leave the network so he can headline a fundraiser for Joe Biden’s presidential campaign.
Andrew Weissmann’s decision to host the fundraiser for the presumptive Democratic nominee appears to violate the network’s policy for creating the “appearance of a conflict of interest,” which is why he said he’ll be leaving the network if it happens as planned, according to the Washington Free Beacon.
The article goes on to state the following:
Weissmann, formerly the second-most senior leader in the special counsel’s investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, will host a “fireside chat” for the former vice president’s donors on June 2.
“If the fundraiser goes forward, I’m withdrawing from MSNBC so I can be in compliance with their policy,” Weissmann said in a statement. “I knew what I was getting into and what the consequences would be.”
“They wanted me to adhere to their policy,” he said.
Molly Hemingway, a senior editor at the Federalist, tweeted:
“The actual person who ran the Mueller probe, Andrew Weissmann, is not just political, contra repeated media claims, but so political that he’s raising money and on the stump for Joe Biden.”
