Russia Probe Prosecutor Andrew Weissmann To Leave DOJ

A key prosecutor involved in the Russia probe is reportedly stepping down, according to a report by npr.

Andrew Weissmann, a lawyer involved in the Paul Manafort case, will be reportedly leaving his role at the Department of Justice to teach at New York University.

He is also expected to continue work with public service projects upon his departure from the DOJ.

This news comes just days after the former Trump campaign chairman was sentenced to over seven years behind bars related to fraud and conspiracy charges.

Though his conviction stemmed from Robert Mueller’s Russia probe, none of the charges are connected to collusion with the Russians.

Some are speculating because Weissmann is stepping down, the probe may be officially nearing its end.
