Another member of special counsel Robert Mueller’s legal ‘dream team’ is coming under scrutiny, this time for her prior work providing legal representation for the Clinton Foundation.

Jeannie Rhee is a former Deputy Assistant Attorney General at the Justice Department, where she worked in the office of legal counsel.

But it is some of her past work as a private lawyer that is now drawing attention, as Republican investigators and outside media turn their focus on members of Mueller’s team.

Rhee joined a legal team that defended the Clinton Foundation from a racketeering lawsuit filed by conservative activist Larry Klayman of Freedom Watch.

Heading the team was Jamie Gorelick, a partner at the Wilmer Hale lawfirm who has as a client President Trump’s son in law Jared Kushner.

CNN reported on the representation in June in a story tallying up political contributions by Mueller’s legal eagles.

The Yale Law School grad donated $5,400 to Hillary Clinton’s presidential campaign in 2015 and 2016, and donated $7,300 to President Obama’s presidential campaigns.

She is among multiple members of Mueller’s team who made contributions to Democrats, which is not prohibited under FBI guidelines.

Rhee also represented Obama security advisor Ben Rhodes as he negotiated a congressional investigation in connection with the 2012 Benghazi attacks. Rhodes was one of Obama’s most trusted advisors.

Conservative commentator Laura Ingraham went after Rhee on Fox News on her show Tuesday night, accusing her and other team members of ‘brazen partisanship.’

‘What Mueller did was hire a pedigree team of obvious partisans,’ Ingraham said. ‘They should all step aside,’ she continued, ‘including Bob Mueller.’
