The Justice Department on Tuesday released special counsel Robert Mueller’s finances, showing that, prior to taking on the role of heading the Russia investigation, Mueller made $3.5 million in a law firm partnership.
The net worth of Mueller and his wife is estimated at somewhere between $4.2 million and $15.4 million. Mueller forewent his law firm job after agreeing to come on as special counsel in the Russia probe, as reported by Politico in May. He then disclosed his financial dealings, as is FBI protocol, where it was revealed that he has made $3.5 million since last year.
Also listed on the financial disclosure form are Mueller’s former clients at his firm, WilmerHale, which include mega-corporations such as Facebook, Apple, Intel, Sony Pictures, the National Football League, and Booz Allen Hamilton.
The client list is notable, as Politico sheds light on the fact that Mueller could come into contact with these companies in trying to gather data for his current investigation. The political news site reported that:
Tech industry experts say Facebook and other companies, including Twitter and Google, could help Mueller establish whether there was any coordination or collusion between the Trump campaign officials who had access to critical voter data files — pinpointing key battleground counties and states, and key demographic groups inside them — and the alleged Russian government social media accounts that were pumping out pro-Trump and anti-Hillary Clinton messages at peak moments of the campaign.
Twitter was a defining theme of this presidential campaign, and onlookers are hard pressed to believe that if there was collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian officials, there wouldn’t be evidence of it in a direct message on the platform.
