Mueller's One-Two Punch (UPDATED)

Anxiety in the White (Supremacist) House is growing as Special Counsel Robert Mueller continues to assemble a "dream team" of veteran prosecutors and investigators. Some of the anxiety is visible in the slimy campaign to discredit the team, notably by odious charlatan Newt "Poot" Gingrich, who recently disparaged them as "bad people" (i.e., Democrats). Two of the team, in particular, are causing worry among the Trumpists. One, Andrew Weissmann, former head of the Justice Department's criminal fraud section of Enron case fame, is a dogged prosecutor known for flipping witnesses in a criminal case to catch higher-ups. Before his successful work on the Enron case, Weissmann was a federal prosecutor in Brooklyn assigned to organized crime cases, including the one that brought down the head of the Genovese crime family. The second, Michael Dreeben, former Deputy Solicitor General and expert in criminal law, has been the Justice Department's key official in prosecuting criminal justice cases. According to Duke University School of Law professor Walter Dellinger, “Michael is the most brilliant and most knowledgeable federal criminal lawyer in America — period.” Both are evidence of the seriousness with which Mueller is approaching the expanding Russiagate probe to include potential criminal violations.

With top law firms refusing to defend sociopath and Putin loyalist Donald "Rump" Trump, and given the second-rate legal team of Sekulow and Kasowitz drafted by Rump, it's no wonder that nerves are frayed in the White (Supremacist) House.

UPDATE:  Make that a one- two- three punch --
Special Counsel Robert Mueller just signed up another recruit to help with his ongoing investigation into alleged Russian influence in the 2016 presidential election. 
Next on-board the investigative juggernaut–which now includes a total of 13 attorneys and counting–is Elizabeth Prelogar, an assistant with the solicitor general’s office who is apparently fluent in the Russian language.

P.E.C. -- Mueller certainly has an impressive (and growing) team to pursue Trump & Co.

Do this geniuses even know how much trouble they're in? Even though they lawyered up, it seems as though they think it's just a formality and they'll skate like they've been doing their whole lives.

Diva -- Maybe they think this is just another New York real estate lawsuit they can finesse. They're in over their heads.
