Is it really a fundraiser for Biden? Practically speaking, the bad press from this egregious mistake means it’ll operate more as a fundraiser for Trump.

I can believe that either Team Joe or Weissmann would have the terrible judgment to formally rebrand the Mueller investigation as a Democratic campaign ploy this way but I’m amazed that they both would. Weissmann’s inviting people to view his work for Mueller as a partisan hatchet job (to the extent they don’t already) and Biden’s handing Trump high-powered ammo to press his case about Obamagate. “I told you the prosecutors on the Russia probe were liberal hacks out to get me! They made an in-kind contribution to Biden’s campaign with the investigation and now they’re back to contributions the old-fashioned way.”
