The city’s top prosecutor and the special prosecutor in the investigation into Trump-Russia connections are both now questioning her, with one saying it appears she was pressured to drop the probe.
Deputy District Attorney Lisa Wirchler is currently on leave due to her decision to take an unpaid leave to work with Special Counsel Robert Mueller.
She’s apparently being called upon again by Special Counsel Bob Mueller to step in should she decide to fire Mueller.
This comes at a crucial time for Mueller, as he’s currently working to corroborate and then, ultimately, indict Hillary Clinton.

Now, as per The Daily Caller News Foundation, Wirchler and her boss, District Attorney Kevin Steele, are now investigating the case, so it’s highly questionable whether or not they both agreed upon the decision not to drop Mueller’s probe or how they are being influenced by Mueller’s investigations.
In the meantime, The Daily Caller News Foundation reported that Wirchler reportedly asked the FBI to obtain immunity in the investigation, but the FBI declined the request.
