There, special counsel Robert Mueller's investigators stopped Nader, people familiar with the case said.Nader later agreed to cooperate with Mueller's investigation, said the people with knowledge of the case as it pertains to Nader.Mueller, whose team has spent the last 10 months investigating possible Trump-related wrongdoing connected to Russia, is interested in high-level get-togethers Nader participated in after the presidential election, according to three people familiar with the case.The questioning of Nader in the Mueller probe suggests possible interest in UAE relations with Trump's transition team or his administration.The AP was able to see a copy of the verdict, which gives Nader's birthdate as May 15, 1959 .A criminal docket sheet obtained by the AP shows the same birthdate for Nader.Two people with knowledge of the case say it involved the same Nader now cooperating with Mueller.Puci said it wasn't clear how much of the one-year sentence Nader served in the Czech Republic. Kathy Ruemmler, who previously served as White House counsel to President Barack Obama, is among the lawyers representing Nader.
