Several White House officials have confirmed President Trump’s assertion that former special counsel Robert Mueller was hoping to become the director of the FBI when he first met with Trump in 2017.

Mueller was seeking the top job at the FBI when Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein approached him to become special counsel, administrative officials told Fox News. Mueller denied that he was pursuing the job under oath during testimony before Congress.

The article goes on to state the following:

“My understanding was I was not applying for the job,” Mueller testified on July 24. “I was asked to give my input on what it would take to do the job.”

In July, President Trump tweeted:

“It has been reported that Robert Mueller is saying that he did not apply and interview for the job of FBI Director (and get turned down) the day before he was wrongfully appointed Special Counsel. Hope he doesn’t say that under oath in that we have numerous witnesses to the interview, including the Vice President of the United States!”

Fox News reports:

“John Dowd, who served as the president’s attorney during the probe, ripped Mueller for meeting with Trump, calling it the ‘most dishonorable conduct I have ever witnessed.’ He added, ‘Capt. Robert Mueller, USMC, sits in front of his commander-in-chief being interviewed for FBI director knowing he is going to investigate the president and never says a word.’”
