Mueller prosecutor Andrew Weissmann says Trump should be investigated and charged with potential federal crimes after leaving office
  • Andrew Weissmann, a former prosecutor on the special counsel Robert Mueller's team, said President Donald Trump should be investigated and, if warranted, prosecuted for federal crimes after leaving the White House.
  • "Mr. Trump's criminal exposure is clear," Weissmann wrote in a New York Times op-ed, adding that Mueller's team gathered "ample evidence" to show Trump obstructed justice in the Russia investigation.
  • Weissmann also said that two New York state investigations from the Manhattan district attorney's office and the New York attorney general's office "may well reveal evidence warranting additional federal charges."
  • "In short, being president should mean you are more accountable, not less, to the rule of law," he wrote.
