Robert Mueller must have known DC needed a drink after this week, because his charging of Michael Flynn, President Trump’s former national security adviser, means drink specials at a Logan Circle bar. The Bird will serve $5 “Moscow Muellers” on Friday thanks to Flynn, who pleaded guilty in federal court to one count of lying to the FBI about his relationship with Russian Ambassador Sergei Kislyak.

The Bird—which also offers drink specials when top officials leave the administration—promised to offer the happy-hour special every time Mueller, a former FBI director who was appointed in May to run a special investigation into the Russian government’s interference in the 2016 election, brings charges against someone involved in the Trump campaign.
The Moscow Mueller special was inaugurated after Trump’s one-time campaign chairman, Paul Manafort, was indicted October 30 on 12 counts of money laundering and conspiracy against the United States.
