MUELLER WAS PURSUING FBI DIRECTOR JOB WHEN HE MET WITH TRUMP IN 2017, ADMINISTRATION OFFICIALS SAY:

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.

As Mark Twain apparently never said, “History never repeats itself but it rhymes:” Mark Felt, call your office.
