Robert Ray Quoted in Washington Post on Robert Mueller Hiring Greg Andres

“Get Smart Fast”

— Meanwhile, special counsel Robert Mueller is adding to his team a former Justice Department lawyer who targeted illegal foreign bribery. Reuters’s Karen Freifeld reports: “Greg Andres started on Tuesday, becoming the 16th lawyer on the team … Most recently a white-collar criminal defense lawyer with New York law firm Davis Polk & Wardwell, Andres, 50, served at the Justice Department from 2010 to 2012. He was deputy assistant attorney general in the criminal division, where he oversaw the fraud unit and managed the program that targeted illegal foreign bribery. That Mueller continues to expand his team means the probe is not going to end anytime soon, said Robert Ray, who succeeded Kenneth Starr as independent counsel for the Whitewater investigation … ‘It’s an indication that the investigation is going to extend well into 2018,’ said Ray. ‘Whether it extends beyond 2018 is an open question.’”
