EXCLUSIVE – ANDREW WEISSMANN PART II: 80,000 Innocent Professionals Lost Their Jobs Due to a Weissmann Indictment that Was Ultimately Overturned by Supreme Court
Andrew Weissmann is in the middle of some of the most corrupt actions taken by the DOJ in US history. Today we have more on his corrupt and unethical actions.
Attorney Sidney Powell is an expert on Department of Justice corruption and she followed the career of Democrat hatchetman Andrew Weissmann who destroyed thousands of lives during his career as a federal prosecutor.
Powell wrote LICENSED TO LIE: Exposing Corruption in the Department of Justice after seeing a core group of federal prosecutors break all the rules, make up crimes, hide evidence, and send innocent people to prison in the Enron case in the mid-2000s.
In January 2019, Powell was on with Mark Levin on “Life, Liberty and Levin” where she described the actions taken by Weissmann during the Enron case. When she saw him and others promoted to the top of the US legal system at the DOJ and FBI under Obama and then assigned to the Mueller Special Counsel, she had had enough.
Weissmann, a major player in the Enron task force, made up a crime that resulted in the complete destruction of Arthur Andersen and the loss of more than 80,000 jobs for those employed by this prestigious audit and consulting firm.
Weissmann indicted the firm and within days, the firm was dissolved. None of its clients wanted to do business with an auditing firm that was indicted for breaking the law. Arthur Andersen’s more than 80,000 employees were suddenly out of work.
Weissmann’s case was eventually overturned by the US Supreme Court unanimously a few years later but it was far too late for all involved because the company was totally destroyed years before the Supreme Court decision.
Powell describes what happened in the interview below.
According to Powell, Mueller and Weissmann created crimes to indict four Americans at Merrill Lynch. They put these four individuals through ten years of “unmitigated hell”. Putting at least one of the four in solitary confinement.
Weissmann’s tactics sent these four Merrill Lynch executives to prison until a federal appellate court overturned their convictions and freed the men—but not until after Weissmann had upended their lives.
Weissmann threatened, intimidated, and interfered in witnesses’ attorney/client relationships per sealed documents that were finally released years later.
Techno Fog reported the below on Twitter where Weissmann threatened a witness:
Newly unsealed documents show direct threats from Andrew Weissmann to an Enron witness:
If the witness meets with the defendants, the Enron Task Force would “make [them] pay”
Hand-picked by Mueller.

We don’t know why Weissmann suddenly resigned from the Enron Task Force.
Weissmann’s abrupt resignation from his top spot on the Enron Task Force and his departure from the DOJ raise that possibility: Weissmann resigned from the task force in the middle of jury deliberations in another Enron-related prosecution. Also, Weissmann’s departure came following trial testimony from two witnesses that “based on discussions with the Task Force before their testimony, they both felt threatened by a possible indictment if they testified on behalf of the [Enron] defendants.”
Additionally, at that trial, the government elicited false testimony from Rice, the witness Weissmann purportedly threatened, which defense counsel was able to establish based on a video tape that contracted Rice’s testimony.
Weissmann’s resignation also came on the heels of the court’s order in the Enron case that directed the attorneys of clients who had pleaded guilty to any Enron-related charge to provide the defendants with all communications from members of the Enron Task Force addressing whether they should communicate with Skilling, Lay, and Causey, or their attorneys.
Weissmann’s conduct, even if it did not violate the defendants’ constitutional rights, may well have crossed ethical lines: An expert witness with nearly 40 years of experience trying criminal cases in state and federal courts, and who had argued seven cases before the U.S. Supreme Court, stated that while he had seen prosecutorial misconduct in the past, in all his years of handling criminal cases he had never seen such “unfair pressures brought to bear on the adversary system in a single case.” The expert then specifically called out as an example the email Weissmann had authored.
None of this stopped Weissmann from leading the Mueller witchhunt in its attempted coup of the President of the United States. The list of unethical and arguably criminal actions by Weissmann in this investigation is unending.
At the time no one knew it, but this was only the beginning of the many corrupt acts attributable to Andrew Weissmann at the DOJ over decades.
Weissmann is the man trying to indict President Trump.
Much more to come…
