The Department of Justice announced that special counsel Robert Mueller will be making his first public statement in years – and the internet had a field day making jokes and memes about his appearances.

On March 22, Special Counsel Robert Mueller submitted the final report on his nearly two-year investigation to the Department of Justice, a redacted version of which was released on April 18.

Since 2017, Mueller has investigated Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, whether the Trump campaign collaborated with Moscow to tilt the race in Trump’s favour, and whether President Donald Trump himself obstructed justice.

He will now address the public for the first time in two years as congressional Democrats are encouraging him to testify before Congress on his findings, which some have accused Attorney General William Barr of misrepresenting.

Mueller, notoriously secretive and private, ran an air-tight operation with zero leaks and few public statements from his team, with he himself giving no public speeches or appearances while conducting the high-profile investigation.

Twitter went wild over the special counsel finally speaking in public, with some jokes predicting Mueller would address the nation to complain about the controversial finale of HBO’s “Game of Thrones.”
