First son Donald Trump Jr. was spotted at the same airline gate as special counsel Robert Mueller, POLITICO reports.

POLITICO obtained the photo from a source at the same gate as the two men. The photo was a stunning juxtaposition of the ongoing high-stakes investigation embroiling the Trump family, the White House and the FBI.

President Donald Trump has railed against Mueller in recent days, dubbing his team “13 Angry Democrats” and characterizing the probe as a “witch hunt.” Mueller has held his position for nearly a year in a probe that began with the purpose of determining the extent of Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election.

Mueller and his team, however, have also targeted former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn, is putting former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort on trial, and are currently seeking an interview with Trump himself.

The interview is said to focus on both Trump’s possible knowledge of Russian attempts to bolster his candidacy and alleged obstruction of justice after the fact.
