Former F.B.I. Director Robert Mueller has just been appointed by the U.S. Justice Department – to investigate alleged interference by Russia – in the American 2016 Presidential campaign.  That investigation will also attempt to determine whether there was any collusion, between Moscow and the Presidential campaign of President Donald J. Trump.

What are the functions of a special prosecutor – or special counsel — what powers, will Mueller have, and what could happen, when the investigation is concluded?

Our special guest is Laurel Brandstetter, Esq. – Partner, in the Pittsburgh office of the law firm  of Schnader Harrison Segal & Lewis LLP, who specializes in both white-collar criminal defense cases and corporate investigations.  Brandstetter is a former state prosecutor, and former Pennsylvania Senior Deputy Attorney General, who testified against her OWN former boss – Pennsylvania Attorney General Kathleen Kane, who was convicted on charges of perjury, and obstruction of justice.

    Rating: Not Recommended

    After graduating from law school, the candidate has been employed in a variety of positions handling civil litigation and divorce and custody proceedings. In 1993, the candidate was appointed to the Pittsburgh Municipal Court, where she continued to serve until 2003. Since that time, the candidate served in a variety of positions and maintained a private law practice addressing the problem of municipal blight. Although the candidate’s record demonstrates a commitment to justice and a strong work ethic, she has minimal experience that would lend itself to an appellate court position. The candidate has little courtroom experience as an advocate. Her experience with the rules of evidence and courtroom procedure is limited to the time she served as a Pittsburgh magistrate and Housing Court judge. The candidate candidly admitted that she had very limited experience as a trial or appellate advocate and no experience in writing briefs or opinions. This indicates to the commission that her exposure within the legal system is very narrow. Given the candidate’s minimal experience as outlined above, the commission does not recommend her candidacy for the Commonwealth Court.
