Robert Mueller assembles a crack team

Special counsel Robert Mueller has added yet another top lawyer to the battery of assistants investigating possible ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Andrew D. Goldstein has left his job as head of the corruption unit of the U.S. attorney’s office in New York to work with Mueller. Among Goldstein’s most high-profile cases: the prosecution of former New York Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, who was convicted of federal corruption charges in 2015.

Mueller has put together a group of attorneys with prosecutorial credentials in white collar crime, money laundering and government scandal.

As the interactive Muckety map above illustrates, team members have investigated Watergate, the Enron collapse and a former business partner of Trump’s former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

Three - James Quarles, Jeannie Rhee and Aaron Zebley - were partners at Mueller’s former law firm, WilmerHale. Zebley and another team member, Andrew Weissmann, worked at the FBI, which Mueller headed from 2001 to 2013.
