The Mueller investigation was never about Mueller. The Washington D.C. insider was just a useful front man for a team of Obama and Clinton supporters, most notably disgraced figure Andrew Weissmann, whose ugly tactics were all over the circus. Mueller was a partner in Wilmer Cutler Pickering Hale and Dorr: one of the most liberal law firms in an academic analysis of law firms by political lean.
You’ll never guess where Mueller is now.
Mueller, 75, is rejoining the WilmerHale law firm in Washington as a partner who will take up his former area of focus: high-profile investigations and crisis management, the firm announced Tuesday.
“We couldn’t be happier to have Bob, our extraordinary friend, and colleague, return to WilmerHale,” Robert Novick, the firm’s co-managing partner, said in a statement. “Few lawyers have been entrusted with as many matters of national significance as Bob, in both his public service and in private practice. Bob embodies the highest values of our firm and profession. We’re privileged to work alongside him once again.”
Mueller said in a statement that he was glad to be rejoining WilmerHale. He described it as a firm with “a tradition of honoring public service.”
Mueller’s two top deputies at the special counsel’s office, Aaron Zebley and James Quarles, have also rejoined the firm after leaving in May 2017 to assist in the Russia probe.
Meanwhile Mueller will see if he can find the address.
