Should Mueller have him arrested?

I've come up with a set of rules that describe our reactions to technologies:
Spoiler:
1. Anything that is in the world when you’re born is normal and ordinary and is just a natural part of the way the world works.
2. Anything that's invented between when you’re fifteen and thirty-five is new and exciting and revolutionary and you can probably get a career in it.
3. Anything invented after you're thirty-five is against the natural order of things.

And while Mueller is casting his net, he may as well investigate Prince Charles, too, who earned most of his money the old-fashioned way, he inherited it.

I am sure Mueller would be happy to investigate all that if the Attorney General tells him to . after he is done with the current case.
