Donald Trump Jr. has a close encounter of the unwelcome kind with Robert Mueller.

Politico is reporting that while trying to catch a flight at DCA on Friday, the president’s son shared a gate with a figure he probably didn’t want to run into: Robert Mueller, the special counsel for the Russia investigation.

The proximity between the two men is likely to be pure coincidence. Still, it comes at an awkward time, with news last night that the president’s former lawyer Michael Cohen claims that Donald Trump Jr. told his father about a planned meeting in 2016 with Russian officials promising opposition research on Hillary Clinton. Trump Jr. surely thinks about Mueller a great deal these days, and this was reminder that the special counsel isn’t easy to escape.
