  • The special counsel Robert Mueller is a demanding boss,
    according to a profile from
    The New York Times
    published on Saturday.
  • Mueller reportedly expects his employees to work late
    nights and weekends.
  • He also reportedly has little patience for those who
    aren’t prepared for meetings.

The special counsel Robert Mueller is a demanding boss who
requires his employees be fully prepared for meetings and work
long hours, according to a profile from
The New York Times
published on Saturday.

The Times reports that the prosecutors working under Mueller on
the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 US
presidential election work late nights and weekends. According to
the publication, Mueller’s expectations aren’t new.

As a US attorney, he would reportedly walk around the office
early in the morning and during the evening to see who was
working. And during his tenure as the director of the Federal
Bureau of Investigation, he received two briefings each day,
which made agents and analysts work grueling and unconventional
schedules, according to The Times.

The Times also reports that Mueller has little patience for those
who aren’t prepared for meetings.

“The thing that would set him off was when someone would
come in for a briefing unprepared,” John S. Pistole, a former
deputy FBI director, told The Times. “Or worse, come in
unprepared and act like they were prepared.”

Efficiency is a priority for Mueller, who conducts short,
15-minute meetings with no small talk, and expects prosecutors to
work quickly, according to The Times.

So far, the investigation led by Mueller into election
interference has resulted
in charges
 against four Americans who were
once associated with President Donald Trump’s campaign or
administration, including Paul Manafort, Trump’s former campaign
chairman, who was found
guilty on eight federal counts of bank and tax
fraud
 on Tuesday.

Russian nationals, intelligence officers, and companies have also
been indicted by Mueller’s team.
