A top prosecutor investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election and possible ties between President Trump’s campaign and Moscow is reportedly leaving special counsel Robert Mueller’s office and the Department of Justice (DOJ). NPR, citing two unidentified sources, reported Thursday that Andrew Weissmann will teach at New York University and work on public service projects.

The article goes on to state the following:

The network reported that the departure is a sign that Mueller and his team are nearing the end of their work.

Weissmann, a top lieutenant to Mueller in the probe, took the lead in the case against former Trump campaign chairman Paul Manafort. Manafort faces 7 1/2 years in prison after he was sentenced by a federal judge in Virginia last week and a federal judge in Washington, D.C. on Wednesday.
