-- The financial disclosure form for Robert Mueller, the former FBI director who was named special counsel in the investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election, has been released and appears not to show any conflicts of interest.
The Office of Government Ethics determined that Mueller “is in compliance with applicable laws and regulations,” and found “no apparent conflicts of interest."
The form lists the income he received from previous jobs, speaking engagements and investments as well as assets.
The document will likely be scrutinized by Mueller's critics and the president's legal team, which is quietly "investigating the investigators," a source previously told ABC News.
Mueller's biggest source of income on the form is the law firm where he used to work, WilmerHale. His partnership share and draw is listed as $3,455,876 over the past three years.
The form noted a number of speaking engagements but did not specify his income from each one. Some of the best-known groups that he addressed, according to the document, were Goldman Sachs, the Nuclear Energy Institute and the Jewish Federation of Greater LA in 2015, and Citi and the Ford Motor Co. in 2016.
