Insider held a wide-ranging interview with the former special counsel Robert Mueller's lead prosecutor, Andrew Weissmann, following the release of his book, "Where Law Ends: Inside the Mueller Investigation."

Weissmann discussed the most challenging aspects of working for Mueller; how prosecuting Enron and the New York mafia made him uniquely qualified to investigate Donald Trump; and whether Russia was successful in its efforts to destabilize US democracy.

Andrew Weissmann, who served as the special counsel Robert Mueller's right-hand man during the FBI's Russia investigation, released a book this week titled, "Where Law Ends: Inside the Mueller Investigation."

The decision not to conduct a financial investigation was especially surprising because you write in your book that Mueller himself voiced a suspicion, after Trump's summit with Vladimir Putin in Helsinki, that Trump had financial interests linked to Russia.
