The swamp has never seemed so small. Special counsel Robert Mueller and Donald Trump Jr. were spotted — by POLITICO Playbook — at the notoriously dreaded Gate 35X at Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport on Friday. Cue the Twitter jokes.
“Avoiding an ex in a confined space like,” wrote CBS Politics reporter Katie Watson. “AWKWARRRRRRD,” CNN’s Brooke Baldwin tweeted.
The spotting comes just one day after CNN’s report that Michael Cohen, Trump’s former personal attorney, claims that he is willing to assert to Mueller that then-candidate Donald Trump had advance notice of a June 2016 meeting at Trump Tower that Trump Jr. attended.
