The questions that Special Counsel Robert Mueller handed to President Donald Trump‘s lawyers have been leaked.
Mueller recently sent the list of nearly four dozen questions to Trump’s lawyers amid ongoing negotiations about what topics the President might address if he agreed to meet with investigators, reported the New York Times, which first published the list.
The questions are wide-ranging and open-ended, and suggest a major interest in potential obstruction charges.
They focus not only on alleged links between the Trump campaign and the Russian government – Mueller’s original investigative mandate – but also heavily on Trump’s thoughts and actions after the election.
Eighteen of the questions focus on Trump’s May 2017 decision to fire former FBI Director James Comey. Thirteen are about alleged campaign links to Russia, eight are about Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and five are about former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn.
Mueller also wants to ask Trump what his ‘reaction’ was after Comey briefed him on January 6, 2017 in Trump Tower about the claims in the Democrat-financed ‘dirty dossier’, which alleged that Russia had compromising information on Trump.
