The AP doesn't have the photo, so we can't show it to you here, but it's worth a click over to Politico to check it out. It captures none other than Robert Mueller and Donald Trump Jr. waiting at the same gate Friday morning at Reagan National Airport, reports USA Today. Mueller is seated and reading a newspaper, while Trump is standing behind him nearby talking on his phone. It's not clear whether either is aware of the other's presence, but the time is uncanny: It comes amid news of the Michael Cohen allegation that Donald Trump knew in advance of Trump Jr'.s meeting with Russians during the 2016 campaign. If true, that could factor in a big way into Mueller's investigation. (More Robert Mueller stories.)
