This NY Prosecutor May Become Trump’s Worst Nightmare And We Can’t Wait

In case you were caught up in a sitting president tweeting a GIF of himself beating up the logo of a major news network because it reports facts, then perhaps you missed the latest happening in Russia-gate. It was reported by NBC that Robert Mueller has added New York federal prosecutor Andrew Goldstein to his team.

From the New York Times:

Mr. Goldstein is the first prosecutor to join Mr. Mueller’s team from the United States attorney’s office for the Southern District of New York, an office known for its pursuit of public corruption, white-collar crime and Wall Street fraud, the office confirmed on Friday.

Who the hell is Andrew Goldstein and why should you care?

Goldstein was former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara’s head corruption prosecutor and under Acting U.S Attorney Joon Kim. He’s renowned for multiple successful prosecutions of New York lawmakers on corruption charges. He’s also highly respected in the Southern District and across Justice for those prosecutions, his thoroughness in investigations, and high level of success.

Separately, a person with direct knowledge of the matter says that all cases previously handled in New York, which includes the probe of for former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort, have been transferred to Mueller.

But this part is Yuge!

From the New York Times:

Mr. Goldstein, 43, joined the United States attorney’s office in 2010 and has also worked in its money laundering and asset forfeiture unit. In 2013, Mr. Goldstein helped win the convictions of three men in connection with a scandal-ridden payroll modernization project known as CityTime.

If Goldstein and Mueller are successful, Trump could not only be facing impeachment or Nixon-style resignation, but he could lose the gaudy Trump Tower and the even more gaudy Mar-A-Lago estate in Florida. But it’s probably best for him to stay up late doing what a 13-year-old student would do to a teacher if they gave him a bad grade.
