A possible conflict of interest surfaces in the Special Counsel’s investigation, this time, from across the bench.
Reports today say the possible conflict rests with the judge overseeing Robert Mueller’s case against the Russian company Concord Management.
Judge Dabney Friedrich is married to prosecutor Matthew Friedrich, who is good friends with Mueller, further, Friedrich has a close relationship with one of Mueller’s attorneys, Andrew Weissman.
The Russian company has repeatedly claimed bias against the judge in the case.
Now, many critics are asking why the alleged bias didn’t force the judge to recuse herself from the case.
