Robert Mueller spotted at Apple store Genius Bar appointment

The special public prosecutor in Russia was photographed to view his MacBook or to make new devices at an Apple retail outlet in the Georgetown section of Washington D.C.

AppleInsider last week described in detail how the abuse of iCloud by former Trump caign manager Paul Manafort contributed to his downfall. It turns out that the man who persecuted him, Special Counsel Robert Mueller, himself is an Apple user.

Journalist Kelly Cohen of the Washington Examiner have published a picture on Twitter Wednesday from Mueller to have his MacBook Pro watched by an Apple Store employee, along with a woman who seems to be Mueller's wife. It is not clear whether it is an older model that is maintained, a new model is set up or a personal laptop is used to configure new portable devices. It seems that a packaged Apple and at least one other item are on the table.

Cohen identified the Apple Store location as the Georgetown store in Washington, D.C., and said the picture was a screenshot of a friend of a friend on Instagram:

The answers to the tweet by Cohen quickly broke out in a makeshift title contest among journalists, Twitter quips and villagers in Russia:

Apple Georgetown was the first Apple in the country's capital when it opened in 2008, although the very first Apple Store was in the neighborhood in McLean, Virginia.

Mueller, the former FBI director who was specially appointed for research into Russia in May 2017, also worked as a lawyer for WilmerHale, a law firm that has long represented Apple. It is not clear how much or any legal work he has ever done personally for the company.

It is not known whether the MacBook Pro that he brought to the Apple Store is for personal or work use, but if this is the last and it is broken, there is much to be driven on whether Genius could or could not repair it .
