Another lead FBI agent in special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigation is being accused of political bias, the Wall Street Journal reported.

What’s going on?

According to the Journal’s report, FBI agent Andrew Weissmann, who is leading the probe’s Paul Manafort and Rick Gates cases, both attended Hillary Clinton’s election night party at the Javits Center in New York City and praised Sally Yates’ efforts to thwart President Donald Trump.

The revelations are significant because Weissmann is considered to be the most senior agent in the investigation second only to Mueller. The New York Times even described Weissmann as Mueller’s “pit bull” and “lieutenant.”

Weissmann’s apparent political bias, along with the bias of FBI agent Peter Strzok — who was removed from Mueller’s probe months ago for exchanging anti-Trump text messages with an FBI lawyer whom he was having an affair with — has many accusing the Trump-Russia probe of being politically motivated and biased.
