(ABC News) Special counsel Robert Mueller has now lost a second official that he brought in from the FBI to help investigate Russia’s alleged meddling in last year’s presidential election, ABC News has learned.
The latest FBI veteran to leave, Lisa Page, was described by media accounts in June as a trial attorney with "deep experience [in] money laundering and organized crime cases." She was part of what Wired magazine called Mueller’s "investigatory dream team."
