"I am so excited," Colbert said Wednesday. "Mueller was appointed one year from tomorrow.

"Of course, the first is anniversary is traditionally the paper anniversary, and with any luck, that is is what Mueller is going to be serving Donald Trump with."

Mueller on Wednesday subpoenaed Jason Sullivan, an adviser to Trump’s longtime confidant Roger Stone, as a part of the ongoing investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential campaign.

The "Late Show" host also joked about news that a grand jury had been impaneled in Washington.

"By law, it has to be a jury of Donald Trump's peers, so guess it's Sean Hannity, the cast of 'Shark Tank' and a cheeseburger," Colbert said. "You are what you eat."

    AB C relying to late night to write negative news. Who knew??

    It's sad that late night talk show hosts actually root for the President of the United States to fail. It's also sad that major news networks are so desperate for negative publicity on Trump, that they write an article to discuss how a late night talk show host wants the President to fail.
    I give this comment until 8:45 EST before it's removed or flagged.

    On May 28, Memorial Day, the Trump White House will reach another milestone. On that day Donald Trump, having been in office for 492 days, will pass Zachary Taylor to become the 41st longest serving president. Trump should consider celebrating this milestone because Warren Harding, #40 on the list, served for 881 days before his death in office. Trump wouldn't triumph over Harding to become the fortieth longest serving president until June, 2019, and surpassing Harding to attain the #40 spot may, for the Trump Administration, prove to be a be an unreachable goal.
