Trump's legal team has been in contact with Mueller's office, and Dowd says he has passed along the president's messages expressing “appreciation and greetings’’ to the special counsel.

So one of the statutes ups the allowable number of members that can be reactivated, and the other ups the amount of time that reactivation can be be effective?
Pretty much what I said.
Now, in regards to whether or not Mueller would fall under this amended EO, I suppose that hinges on the possibility that Mueller is indeed working with Trump and Military Intelligence as is posited by the Q posts.
Personally, I am cynical enough to think it will end up being a cleverly constructed LARP, but I'm not so jaded that all hope is lost in regards to the possibility that all the garbage in D.C. will eventually be taken out.

It kind of makes you think that the leaks are part of the plan to create a investigation to root out other operative swamp creatures .
Robert Mueller, the special counsel leading the Justice Department’s Russia collusion investigation, removed an FBI agent from the case over possible anti-Trump text messages, Fox News confirmed Saturday.
The agent has been identified as Peter Strzok, one of the agency’s most experienced and trusted counterintelligence investigators, said the New York Times, which first reported the dismissal.

Peter Strzok and Charles H. Kable IV, then the section chiefs of the FBI's counterespionage section, wrote secret letters to Gregory B. Starr, the assistant secretary at the State Department's Bureau of Diplomatic Security, marked "For Official Use Only," dated October 23, 2015 and January 20, 2016, while the FBI was investigating Hillary Clinton's use of an unsecure, private email server and the dissemination of classified information.
The letters acknowledged that the FBI investigation stemmed from a "Section 811" referral from the Intelligence Community's Inspector General (ICIG). A Section 811 referral revolves around unauthorized information that might have been disclosed to a foreign power.
During the Clinton investigation, Strzok was involved in a romantic relationship with FBI lawyer Lisa Page, who worked for Deputy Director Andrew McCabe, according to the people familiar with the matter, who spoke on the condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue.
The extramarital affair was problematic, these people said, but of greater concern among senior law enforcement officials were text messages the two exchanged during the Clinton investigation and campaign season in which they expressed anti-Trump sentiments and other comments that appeared to favor Clinton.
