Special Counsel Robert Mueller’s corrupt “pit bull” Andrew Weissmann has inked a book deal in which he will discuss his work on the special counsel’s team, according to the New York Times.

According to a publishing executive speaking with the newspaper, Weissmann’s book was acquired by Random House.

The Times writes:

It is unclear how much detail Mr. Weissmann will provide about the inner workings of the investigation, and whether his book will provide any major revelations. Mr. Weissmann was central to building the government’s case against Paul Manafort, Mr. Trump’s former campaign chairman. He did not conduct the investigation into whether President Trump obstructed justice, according to people familiar with the structure of the Mueller team.

Weissmann has a long history of corrupt behavior and has donated thousands of dollars Democrats.

After it was announced that Weissmann would join the Mueller investigation in 2017, it was revealed that he attended Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election night party.

Breitbart points out that Weissmann donated thousands of dollars to the Democratic party. “Records show Weissmann donated $2,350 to the Obama Victory Fund in 2008, and contributed $2,000 to the DNC in 2006,” writes the site.

Weissmann joined the Enron Task Force in 2002 and eventually became the director where he aggressively prosecuted the accounting firm Arthur Andersen LLP, resulting in the loss of 85,000 jobs worldwide. Several years later, the Supreme Court unanimously reversed the conviction.

Former DOJ prosecutor Sidney Powell says Weissmann “creatively criminalized a business transaction between Merrill Lynch and Enron. Four Merrill executives went to prison for as long as a year. Weissmann’s team made sure they did not even get bail pending their appeals, even though the charges Weissmann concocted, like those against Andersen, were literally unprecedented.”

His prosecution destroyed the lives and families of the Merrill employees before the 5th Circuit Court of Appeals reversed the mass of the case.

“Weissmann quietly resigned from the Enron Task Force just as the judge in the Enron Broadband prosecution began excoriating Weissmann’s team and the press began catching on to Weissmann’s modus operandi,” Powell concludes.
