Meiri on Manipulating a Rov

Emes V EMunah discusses a case where as he cites it: "In any case, this well known English-speaker translated my shailah and details to R' Elyashiv in such a clearly biased manner that there was almost no way for R' Elyashiv to answer anything but that it's ossur altz "yoiser michdai dmayhen". The fellow practically told R' Elyashiv that it was assur within the context of my shailah"

Surprisingly, the "well know English speaker" can find some Rabbinic support for his actions. See Meiri to Yevamot 115a:
