Jeannie Rhee is a Hillary Clinton donor and attorney for the Clinton Foundation. Rhee was appointed to the Office of Special Counsel Robert Mueller. Rhee worked on the George Papadopoulos case.[1]

Rhee and the Mueller team indicted the proverbial ham sandwich.

Rhee has been involved in the "joke indictment" of 13 Russian nationals and 3 Russian entities who were never expected to travel from Russia to appear in court.[2] One of the indicted companies did not even exist at the time it was alleged to have ran ads on social media during the 2016 presidential election.[3]

According to the Washington Post,
"With $81 million spent on Facebook by the Trump and Clinton campaigns...The Russian effort looks even less influential when one considers the tiny amount of Russian Facebook spending directed at key battleground states — $1,979 in Wisconsin, $823 in Michigan and $300 in Pennsylvania."[4]

Rhee represented Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in a lawsuit about her private emails, and she also represented the Clinton Foundation in a civil racketeering case.

Rhee donated $5,400 to Hillary Clinton in 2015 and 2016, according to FEC records. The records show she gave $2,500 each to Obama for America and Obama Victory Fund 2012 in 2011.

Rhee also represented President Barack Obama's deputy national security adviser Ben Rhodes during the House Benghazi Committee’s investigation into the deadly 2012 terrorist attack in Libya.

Rhee is a former partner at WilmerHale who has served as a deputy assistant attorney general in the Office of Legal Counsel.

Rhee has tried over 30 cases for the Department of Justice. During the Obama administration, she advised the White House and attorney general on criminal law, executive privilege and other legal matters.
