See that guy in the aqua-colored polo shirt with the cell phone on his ear and cap on his head? That’s Donald Trump Jr., son of POTUS Don. He’s standing in line at Gate 35X at Reagan National Airport in Arlington, Virginia. Seated at left about 15 feet away from Don Jr. is Robert Mueller, head of the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 election. Don Jr. is one of the Americans being investigated by Mueller for possible collusion with the Russians.
The picture was taken Friday, July 27, exactly two years to the day from when then-presidential candidate Donald Trump said in a rally: “Russia, if you are listening, find Hillary Clinton’s missing 33,000 e-mails. You’ll be greatly rewarded by the press.” The next day, Russians hacked into the Democratic National Committee’s computer.
The day this photo was taken Donald Jr. was in the news again related to the meeting in Trump Tower with several Russians linked to the Russian government. Don Jr. had arranged the meeting, and now Trump Sr.’s former ‘fixer’ Michael Cohen reportedly said that Trump knew about the meeting in advance of it, something he has previously denied.
Interestingly, Gate 35X is one that requires passengers to take a bus from the terminal to the gate. So it’s possible that Mueller and Don Jr. were riding on the same bus to the gate.
