Former special counsel Robert Mueller will give a lecture at the University of Virginia Law School about his investigation into Donald Trump who pursued the president for two years.
Mueller, a former top prosecutor who was praised by lawmakers from both parties when his appointment was first announced in March 2019, studied law at the UVA decades ago.
“I was lucky enough to go to UVA Law School after the Marine Corps and I am lucky enough to return there now,” he said in a statement. ‘I look forward to talking to the students this fall.’

Mueller, 76, will teach law students about the probe Trump continues to unleash as a “witch hunt” that contributed to Trump’s first impeachment — even though the impeachment articles focused on his conduct toward Ukraine.
Mueller made the controversial decision to outline 10 potential areas of Trump obstruction of justice in his report, without making a recommendation to indict him. His report recognized the Justice Department’s guidelines against indicting a sitting president.

His 448-page report details multiple areas of possible misconduct, including possible attempts to obstruct the investigation itself. Mueller never got a personal interview with Trump, but the two sides exchanged written questions through lawyers.
Former Attorney General Bill Barr infuriated Democrats with his own four-page summary of the report in March 2019 before it was made available to the public.
New York prosectors continue to investigate Trump’s cases after obtaining tax return information. Mueller did his best to keep his investigation closer to the Russia issues it started with.
His course, The Mueller Report and the Role of the Special Counsel, will take part in six sessions, the Washington Examiner reporter.
Mueller’s team of prosecutors is also involved. Among them are former deputy Aaron Zebley, as well as former assistant Jim Quarles, both at the law firm of Wilmer Hale, and Andrew Goldstein, who heads Cooley’s white collar defense practice.
Another top prosecutor, Andrew Weissmann, partially blames Zebley for reining in the team and preventing them from fully pursuing Trump’s finances.
“We could have done more,” he wrote in his tell-all. Zebley also attended the UVA.
Mueller is also with Wilmer Hale.
According to UVA, sections will focus on “navigating the relationship with the Department of Justice and Congress, investigating the White House and the importance of prosecuting Roger Stone.” Trump forgave Stone months before leaving office.
