President Donald Trump accused special counsel Robert Mueller and his team of investigators of attempting to meddle in the 2018 midterm elections.

Trump referenced the number of registered Democrats and former operatives on Mueller’s investigatory team and singled out Andrew Weissmann in particular. Weissman is a Mueller team investigator who attended Hillary Clinton’s election night party at the Jacob Javits center in November 2016.

Weissman also sent congratulatory emails to former acting Attorney General Sally Yates for refusing to comply with a presidential order to implement his travel ban order in the early days of the Trump administration.
