We have suggested that readers pay attention to the New York angle of the Trump scandals. This lends a bit of support to this projection

NBC News  - A top New York federal prosecutor is joining the team of Special Counsel Robert Mueller, the former FBI director leading an investigation into alleged Russian interference in the presidential election, a senior Justice Department official with knowledge of the matter confirmed to NBC News.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Andrew Goldstein of the Southern District of New York will join Mueller’s team, the official said.

Goldstein was former U.S. Attorney Preet Bharara's top public corruption prosecutor and kept the same role under Acting U.S Attorney Joon Kim.

He's known for multiple successful prosecutions of New York lawmakers on corruption charges. He's also highly regarded in the Southern District and across Justice for those prosecutions, his thoroughness in investigations, and high level of success.
