John Chisholm, Bridesmaid

It appears that Mr. Mueller's 'special counsel' team requires special skills.

...Mueller has selected Deputy solicitor general Michael Dreeben as one of his advisers. Dreeben is a premier criminal law expert. However, he’s considered a left-winger by people whose judgment I trust. And Preet Bharara — former US attorney of the Southern District of New York and current Trump adversary — says he’s over-the-moon about Dreeban’s selection

Dreeben does not owe his selection to investigative prowess. He’s on the team to evaluate whether the fruits of the investigation give rise to a crime. 

That’s fine if Dreeben has no agenda. But if he’s anti-Trump, there’s reason to fear he will bend over backwards to spin out a theory through which Trump can be prosecuted....

Well, what about John Chisholm, Milwaukee County DA and theory-spinner extraordinaire??  Not even a mention?

Or was it that Chisholm failed in--I dunno, 90??-- courts on his gibberish-theorizing?
