Mueller acknowledges his impatience.  In his address at William & Mary, he recalled that during his days at Justice he’d often cut off attorneys by saying, “What is the issue?”  One evening, he said, his wife started telling him about a hard day.  He interjected with the same curt question.  She did not appreciate it.  “I am your wife,” he recalled her saying.  “I am not one of your attorneys.  Do not ever ask me, ‘What is the issue?’  You will sit there and you will listen until I am finished.
“That night, I did learn the importance of listening to those around you — truly listening — before making judgment, before taking action,” he continued.  “I also learned to use that question sparingly, and never, ever with my wife.”
