D.C. bars are not afraid to dip into politics, especially when there's an excuse to peddle discounted drinks. Just look at this past summer, when the James Comey testimony sparked a slew of deals, including free drinks for certain Trump tweets. There were specials for the Jeff Sessions hearing, too.

The latest fodder is Special Counsel Robert Mueller's investigation into Russia's alleged election meddling. Poultry-happy restaurant The Bird (1337 11th St. NW) in Logan Circle announced it'll offer $5 "Moscow Muellers" any time a Trump associate is indicted in the ongoing investigation.
