Attorney All-Stars: Mueller Constructs Legal Team for Trump Probe

Parmenio Sano | 17 Giugno, 2017, 04:23

The Federal Bureau of Investigations building in Washington DC.

Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating alleged ties between President Donald Trump's campaign and Russian Federation, has hired 13 lawyers to handle the probe, and has plans to add more, according to Peter Carr, his spokesman.

Since his appointment on May 17, Mueller, a former Federal Bureau of Investigation director, has recruited a high-powered team of lawyers, investigators and prosecutors with deep expertise in areas ranging from financial fraud to constitutional law.

Mueller brought in James Quarles and Jeannie Rhee from his previous firm WilmerHale, and Andrew Weissmann, the leader of the Enron fraud investigation.


Mueller's team includes top investigators and lawyers who have represented major companies in court, according to CNN.

The special counsel will also be investigating whether President Donald Trump obstructed justice, and it will be up to Mueller to decide whether to charge anyone during the investigation.

"In addition to Mr. Mueller, we have 13 attorneys on board, with several more in the pipeline", Mueller's spokesman, Peter Carr, told TPM in an email.
