POLITICO’s Playbook runs a section called Spotted, where if you’re in D.C. and come across a prominent news figure or, increasingly unlikely in the post-Obama years, a celebrity, you can shoot the newsletter team an email and hopefully see your encounter mentioned in their next edition.

The Special Counsel’s team, which is usually tight-lipped, surprisingly confirmed that it was, in fact, Mueller in the photo.
