21. In my view, that would be a political consideration.

Taking into account the timing of his conclusion related to the election. That's precisely what a political consideration is.

What Comey did was not comparable. Comey stepped outside the norm of handling an investigation to announce re-opening the investigation. Comey actually didn't yet know whether the investigation would be re-opened; he hadn't looked at the "new" evidence that had appeared. And second, the FBI didn't, as a matter of policy, make statements to the public about investigations. Totally different situation.

I don't think Mueller took anything into consideration other than he had gone as far as he could. The investigation was concluded. His job was over.
