Washington DC and The Holy Land>Mueller was pursuing FBI director job

Poor Donger.

EXCLUSIVE – Multiple administration officials tell Fox News that when Robert Mueller met with President Trump in May of 2017, Mueller was indeed pursuing the open post as the director of the FBI – something the former Russia probe special counsel denied under oath during congressional testimony this summer.

These officials also told Fox News government documents showed Mueller was pursuing the job as a candidate himself.

It came as emails released this month through a Freedom of Information Act request by the conservative group Judicial Watch seemed to indicate Mueller knew there was a real possibility he could be named special counsel if he wasn’t chosen as the next FBI director.


“The boss and his staff do not know about our discussions,” then-Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein said in an email to Mueller on May 12, 2017. Rosenstein’s boss was then-Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who had recused himself from the Russia probe, meaning the president would not have known either.

A source close to Rosenstein confirmed to Fox News that he had confidential conversations with Mueller about whether he would be willing to serve in the event he needed to appoint a special counsel. These conversations began on May 12, 2017, prior to Mueller's meeting with the president on May 16, 2017, the source acknowledged.

At the time of the now-famous May 16, 2017 meeting, James Comey had been fired as FBI director just days before and -- unbeknownst to the president -- Mueller would end up being named special counsel the very next day to oversee the Trump-Russia probe.

The president has repeatedly claimed that Mueller – who served as FBI director under Presidents George W. Bush and Barack Obama – met with him about returning to lead the Justice Department. The president has pointed to this to argue it was a conflict for Mueller to become special counsel, saying he opted against hiring Mueller as FBI director.

But Mueller, in his July congressional testimony, denied the claim, saying he believed he was giving “input” to the president about the position.

“My understanding was I was not applying for the job,” Mueller said on July 24. “I was asked to give my input on what it would take to do the job.”

John Dowd, who served as the president’s attorney during the probe, ripped Mueller for meeting with Trump, calling it the “most dishonorable conduct I have ever witnessed.” He added, “Capt. Robert Mueller, USMC, sits in front of his commander-in-chief being interviewed for FBI director knowing he is going to investigate the president and never says a word.”

The president himself has claimed there were “numerous witnesses” to the meeting.


"It has been reported that Robert Mueller is saying that he did not apply and interview for the job of FBI Director (and get turned down) the day before he was wrongfully appointed Special Counsel" Trump tweeted the day of Mueller’s Capitol Hill testimony. "Hope he doesn't say that under oath in that we have numerous witnesses to the interview, including the Vice President of the United States!"

Mueller did not immediately return a request for comment from Fox News on Tuesday.

It was announced earlier this month that Mueller rejoined the WilmerHale law firm, after concluding his work as special counsel.

In April, Mueller’s team released a report about their findings, indicating they did not find evidence of coordination between the 2016 Trump campaign and Russia while declining to reach a conclusion on whether the president's conduct during the probe amounted to obstruction.

B. :-) yea right, how much $ has Obama made off being POTUS? They just purchased a $15MM house FFS. How much money are the Clinton's worth even though they left the WH "broke".
He spends so much time at his properties that it's impossible for his not to make money off the trips. Everytime he's there they have to rent rooms for him, the secret service agents, staff members, etc.

Throw in that he does odd things like make Pence stay at his Ireland property and fly each day all the way across the island to his meetings. Kind of odd there isn't it?

:-) yea he ran for POTUS to rent hotel rooms out.

How much a room per day? How many rooms have to be rented for the profit margin to hit $400,000?

I did a little homework for you out of curiosity. A good profit margin for hotel spa is 8%. So lets say each room cost an average of $250 per night, thats a nice and tidy $20 profit per night per room.

It would only take 20,000 rooms rented for Trump to break even on giving up his annual salary as POTUS. :-)

It could be considered by a more able mind? One that isn't TDS infected maybe?

Dear lord you are delusional. Trump is making $20 profit per room on a place that has an annual membership fee of $200k? A fee that he doubled by the way as soon as he became president. No, he ran because he could keep his brand going and there was plenty of talk of him starting up a TrumpTV type of media company once he failed. Once he surprisingly won, they had to scramble to put together any sort of cabinet because he was completely unprepared for it. The plan was obviously to continue to drum up the hate, claim a stolen election, blah, blah, blah, and make money off his loyal devotees. He became POTUS and TrumpTV was placed on ice but he's found plenty of ways to keep making money while in office.

Huh, considering he was rich going in, doesn't take a salary and will be rich going out, I'd think you'd be a bit more concerned on how people like say the Obama's go in not rich and come out extremely rich? Or any other politician for that matter...

:-) yea thats what the plan was! That's how you make billions of $$! You figured it it out!

I seriously think anti-Trumpers have lost their ****ing minds. Nothing they say ever passes the most basic smell test.

Bingo.

A billionaire becoming POTUS to get rich is absolutely the dumbest fucking idea I have ever heard.

Politicians do that, not billionaires.

I didn't say he became POTUS to get rich but he absolutely ran to keep increasing his brand which is one of the only things keeping him rich. Look at his properties and there's a lot problems. He's losing money on a bunch of them. He's using the presidency to prop up properties that are money losers or just flat out make money on ones that are doing ok. Obama made money on speaking fees, Netflix deals, etc. Not really the same thing.

We also need to get off this myth of him being some financial guru. He files for bankruptcy more often that he gets a divorce. Noone in the states lends to him because he's such a bad investment that he needs to use the same bank Russian Oligarchs use. Trump's just a guy who had a rich dad and knows how to sell himself. He's that guy that kills it in the interview telling you how great he is but when he gets on the job proves how inept he actually is but then just job hops elsewhere. The only reason he's been able to get things done is because he has money behind his name and the only reason he has that is because of dad. People think he's got all this experience but he's just good at selling himself. If he didn't have Daddy's money, he'd have probably still done great as one of the best Used Car salesmen out there.
