Mueller has list of questions for Trump

Special counsel Robert Mueller is surrounded by police and security after briefing members of the Senate on his Russia Trump: There was no collusion and is no obstruction of justice

For more on Mueller's questions for Trump, see the report from The New York Times. The questions reveal, among other things, that he is still investigating possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Former FBI Director James Comey slammed a House intelligence Committee report by Republicans that concluded President Trump's campaign didn't collude with Russian Federation to undermine the 2016 presidential election.

None of the charges directly relate to work he performed for Trump's campaign.

"What knowledge did you have of any outreach by your campaign, including by Paul Manafort, to Russian Federation about potential assistance to the campaign?"

Two weeks ago, Trump recruited to his legal team former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, who said he would try to reach a deal with Mueller on how the president would cooperate with the probe.

Trump hailed the 253-page report Friday as vindication that the special counsel investigation is a "total Witch Hunt".

Mueller has charged 22 individuals and entities to date, including Trump's former campaign chairman Paul Manafort and his associate Rick Gates.

"As an American citizen, I would expect my president to respect the rule of law. and to cooperate with a lawful, appropriate investigation", he said.


What discussions did you have during the campaign regarding any meeting with Mr. Putin?

Deripaska and Manafort had been in a dispute over a $19 million business deal involving a Ukrainian cable company.

The questions also appear to suggest that Mueller is interested in the steps that Trump took to fire him a year ago and his subsequent backing away from the decision, the Times reported. One of the unproven theories of collusion is members of the Trump campaign coordinated with the Russian government to release emails stolen from the Clinton campaign and Democratic National Committee. Did you discuss it with others?

Trump's lawyers have been negotiating terms of a sit-down, the Times reported - and the list of questions grew out of those negotiations, the Times reported.

Mueller even plans on grilling Trump on specific tweets. Aras and Emin Agalarov also helped arrange the 2016 meeting at Trump Tower. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russian operatives during the presidential transition. Mueller hopes to ask Trump the objective for several meetings he had with Comey during the early days of his presidency. Trump asked Comey to back off of the investigation of Flynn, the former FBI director claimed in a February 14, 2017 memo.

But despite the Trump haters' best attempts to make something old into something new, the "informant" craze only had a half-life of about 48 hours.

"When was it made? Why?"
