Three members of the team hired by special counsel Robert Mueller to investigate Russia's meddling in the 2016 election have donated primarily to Democrats, according to records from the Federal Election Commission.
Mueller selected James Quarles, Jeannie Rhee and Andrew Weissman to make up members of his legal team, among the five lawyers identified by CNN.
Those three lawyers have collectively made more than $53,000 in political donations since 1988. More than half of those donations came from Quarles.
Quarles has donated close to $33,000 to Democratic political campaigns, including to Democratic presidential candidates Michael Dukakis, Al Gore, John Kerry, Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton.
He also donated more than $20,000 to groups helping to elect Democrats to the House and Senate.
Quarles has donated much less to Republicans, including $2,500 to Rep. Jason Chaffetz of Utah in 2015 and $250 to former Sen. George Allen of Virginia in 2005.
Both Quarles and Rhee gave $2,700 to Clinton's presidential campaign in 2016.
Rhee also gave $2,700 to Clinton's campaign in 2015, and has donated $16,000 to Democrats since 2008.
Her contributions include $7,300 to Obama's two presidential campaigns.
Weissman, who previously led the investigation into Enron, donated $2,300 to Obama's first presidential campaign and another $2,000 to the Democratic National Committee in 2006.
Records don't show any political donations from Mueller, whom the Justice Department tapped in May to oversee the investigation into ties between Trump campaign associates and Russian officials.
The remaining two members of the legal team identified by CNN — Aaron Zebley and Deputy Solicitor General Michael Dreeben — have not donated to political campaigns, according to the FEC.
