Robert Mueller to Teach Class on His Russiagate Probe

'I look forward to engaging with the students this fall....'

Former special counsel Robert Mueller will help teach a class this fall about his investigation into former president Donald Trump’s campaign and the debunked Russiagate hoax.

Mueller, who led the federal probe into allegations that Trump colluded with Russia during the 2016 presidential election from 2017 to 2019, will co-lead a course at the University of Virginia School of Law along with former deputy special counsels Aaron Zebley, Jim Quarles, and Andrew Goldstein, who also participated in the investigation.

“I was fortunate to attend UVA Law School after the Marine Corps, and I’m fortunate to be returning there now,” Mueller, a UVA Law graduate, said in a statement. “I look forward to engaging with the students this fall.”

The course, titled “The Mueller Report and the Role of the Special Counsel,” will take place over six in-person sessions, according to the university.

It will cover the history of the investigation from start to finish and focus on some of its most famous moments, including the CNN-filmed over-the-top arrest of former Trump affiliate Roger Stone.

Mueller has defended his investigation as nonpartisan and fair even though the premise of the investigation — that Trump colluded with Russia — has been proven false time and time again.

Republicans questioned whether Mueller was really the one leading the probe after his congressional testimony in 2019, during which he failed to adequately answer questions about his own investigation.

Sen. Lindsey Graham, R-S.C., said at the time that Mueller was just a “figurehead” for the Russiagate hoax, and that some of Mueller’s team members, specifically Andrew Weissmann, who famously attended Hillary Clinton’s 2016 election night event, were really the ones in charge.

Trump agreed: “This has been a disaster for the Democrats and a disaster for the reputation of Robert Mueller,” Trump tweeted at the time.
