It’s being reported this morning that Mueller’s top prosecutor, Andrew Weissman, is now stepping down from Mueller’s team as a sign that they are wrapping up the Russia probe:
#BREAKING: Andrew Weissmann, one of the most prominent members of special counsel Robert Mueller's team, will soon leave the office and the Justice Department, two sources tell NPR. https://t.co/FkT15Ek8Jh

But what isn’t being widely reported is why Weissman is leaving.
OAN’s Jack Posobiec, who I generally view with skepticism, reported both on-air and on his Twitter account yesterday that Mueller and Weissman wanted to keep using Flynn to continue the Russia probe. But after asking some tough questions, AG Barr didn’t feel like they had enough probable cause to continue the investigation and shut them down.
Today it’s being reported that Weismann is leaving the investigation. Coincidence? Doesn’t sound like it.
Plus, according to UPI, Mueller filed in court yesterday that he was finished with Flynn:
Former national security adviser Michael Flynn has finished working with Justice Department investigators looking into Russian electoral interference, and now faces sentencing this month for lying to the FBI in the case.
The office of special counsel Robert Mueller said in a status update late Tuesday that investigators have finished their work with Flynn as it pertains to Russia, a primary figure in the inquiry.
So given all of that, I’ve decided to run with this report. Here is what Posobiec reported on OAN yesterday regarding the conversations between Barr and team Muller:
There’s more information in the video above, but here are a few of his tweets:

Mueller wants to drop new indictment but Barr is asking a lot of questions
“It has to be ironclad”

Some of the prosecutors on the Special Counsel team wanted to keep Flynn cooperating and work toward another indictment for someone.

There may be other tweets but Posobiec tweets so much it’s like trying to find a needle in a haystack. In any event, I thought you’d at least want to know about this reporting. So far Posobiec is the only one reporting any of this that I can find, but considering he’s a reporter on the right, he probably does have a good source in the AG office.
