Robert Mueller, the invisible prosecutor who investigated President Trump

Mar 25, 2019 - 10:24 AM

Mueller, who had the fate of the presidency in his hands stayed silent and invisible, keeping politicians of both parties on edge, lawyers studying the constitution and journalists swarming

(FILES) This file photo taken on June 19, 2013 shows then Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) Director Robert Mueller testifying before the US Senate Judiciary Committee on oversight during a hearing on Capitol Hill in Washington, DC.  Special counsels like the one named to oversee the probe into Russia's alleged election interference are rare super sleuths with more power and independence than regular US investigators. This time it is Robert Mueller, a former FBI director who took over the high-stakes Russia probe in May after US President Donald Trump fired James Comey as FBI director. The first indictments in Mueller's probe are reported to have been brought by a grand jury and could be made public as early as October 30, 2017.   / AFP PHOTO / SAUL LOEB
