It is being reported that another member of special counsel Robert Mueller’s investigative team exhibits a history of aiding Hillary Clinton and her fellow Democrats, lawyer Jeannie Rhee.
As Bizpac Review reports, Rhee previously worked at a law firm with Mueller and joined him upon his designation as special counsel.
Rhee previously defended former President Barack Obama’s deputy national security adviser Ben Rhones:
Two other attorneys left WilmerHale to work with Mueller in his current capacity.
Rhee, who specialized in government investigations and white-collar criminal probes, represented Obama Deputy National Security Adviser Ben Rhodes during the House Select Committee on Benghazi’s investigation into the 2012 Benghazi attack, Fox News reports.
The lawyer also represented Hillary Clinton and the Clinton Foundation in separate instances:
Rhee also represented the Clinton Foundation in 2015, when conservative activist group Freedom Watch filed a racketeering lawsuit against the suspect foundation. Additionally, Rhee represented Hillary Clinton in a lawsuit that sought access to her private emails.
Rhee’s family has made a number of other financial contributions to the Democrat Party and her husband, also a lawyer, worked for a number of Democrats:
Rhee’s husband, Christopher Sclafani, is a lawyer who has worked with prominent Democrats, including serving as a special assistant to then-Deputy Attorney General Eric Holder and as counsel to Democratic Sen. Dick Durbin (D-IL).

Campaign donations records show that Rhee highly favors Democratic political candidates. She donated a total of $5,400 to Clinton in 2015 and 2016, and $4,800 to Barack Obama in both 2008 and 2011. Rhee has donated smaller amounts to the Democratic National Committee and Democrats in Congressional races.
