Mueller’s No. 2 Headlines Fundraiser For Joe Biden
Andrew Weismann, lead prosecutor for ex-special counsel Robert Mueller, is headlining a fundraising event for former Vice President Joe Biden.
On June 2, Weismann will sit down with former New Jersey Attorney General Anne Milgram for a virtual “fireside chat” and fundraiser for Biden, the presumptive Democratic nominee.

The deportations represent an extraordinary shift in policy that has been unfolding in recent weeks on the southwestern border, under which safeguards that have for decades been granted to migrant children by both Democratic and Republican administrations appear to have been abandoned. Read more…
