Mueller and Trump are both Republicans born in the mid 1940s in New York City. That’s about where their similarities end.
For instance, Mueller served in Vietnam, earning a Bronze Star and Purple Heart, while Trump received five deferments. While Mueller was an Assistant U.S. Attorney General for the Criminal Division in the early 1990s, Trump’s Taj Mahal casino was violating anti-money laundering rules at an unprecedented rate.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is moving forward with the investigation into possible coordination between Donald Trump’s campaign and the Russian government during the 2016 election, while Congress’ investigations vary in their direction and effectiveness.
