Mueller’s Questions For Trump Leaked; Read Them Here

The New York Times has obtained a list of four-dozen questions that Special Counsel Robert Mueller would like President Trump to answer, after Mueller’s office delivered the questions to Trump’s attorneys (however the Times notes that their source is not someone on Trump’s legal team).

Mueller has sought to question Trump for months over his business dealings, his relationships, and his communications with former staffers who have become embroiled in the probe. Trump, meanwhile, has at times expressed a desire to be interviewed by Mueller in the hopes of ending the investigation more quickly. The President’s lawyers eventually negotiated for Mueller to present a list of questions, which can be read below.

Mr. Trump’s lawyers gave Mr. Mueller several pages of written explanations about the president’s role in the matters the special counsel is investigating. Concerned about putting the president in legal jeopardy, his lead lawyer, John Dowd, was trying to convince Mr. Mueller he did not need to interview Mr. Trump, according to people briefed on the matter.

Mr. Mueller was apparently unsatisfied. He told Mr. Dowd in early March that he needed to question the president directly to determine whether he had criminal intent when he fired Mr. Comey, the people said.

But Mr. Dowd held firm, and investigators for Mr. Mueller agreed days later to share during a meeting with Mr. Dowd the questions they wanted to ask Mr. Trump. –NYT

Several questions focus on communications between Trump or members of his staff and Russia, while others focus on the infamous Trump Tower meeting between Don Jr. and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya, which was organized by Fusion GPS associate Rob Goldstone.

Further questions pertain to:

  • Russian hacking during the 2016 election
  • Why Trump praised Wikileaks during the election and called on Russia to find Hillary Clinton’s deleted emails
  • Questions about Jeff Sessions, Michael Cohen, Jared Kushner, Reince Priebus and others
  • Trump’s decisions to fire his former National Security Advisor Mike Flynn as well as former FBI Director James Comey

Trump’s explanation for why he fired each individual has appeared to change at times, stoking speculation that the president may have obstructed justice.

In a similar vein, Mueller planned to inquire about Trump’s reported efforts to fire the special counsel.

What discussions did you have regarding terminating the special counsel, and what did you do when that consideration was reported in January 2018?” the question states, according to The Times.

Trump reportedly sought to fire Mueller on two occasions, but was talked out of it in both instances. –The Hill

  1. l would tell Mueller to “Bite Me” and go after the dems and Hillary if he is truly interested in any collusion during the 2016 election.

  2. I just bet this won’t even satisfy Mueller. He will just keep digging until he finds SOMETHING/ANYTHING!

  3. Mueller is a political insider intent on making the president look bad. I want to know when the Clinton, Holder, Obama investigation is starting – far more obstructing than Trump could ever be… Benghazi, Fast n Furious, Uranium, and a list of executive orders that goes on for days. Comey is a pile of dung which is the reason for firing him and Mueller should have recused himself.

  4. As I’ve said once before there needs to be an investigation to investigate the investigator. This investigation was to find out about any “collusion”. But Mueller has become the “gallows” man for the democrats. There’s no doubt that George Soros is in this up to his eyeballs. And Mueller is getting some Biiiig bucks to carry this thing forward in all these directions. I know it would cause convulsions in the media and screaming cover up from the democrats. But If I were President Trump I’d fire the SOB and let ’em scream.

  5. questions for Mueller: how much money did you think soros should pay you? ; how many times have you had private meetings with hil supporters to think about strategy ?; what did you think about billy and lorry meeting on the tarmac?; what did you think about the hot Arizona sun?; what color tie did you think went best with the shirt you wore on 12/28/2018? ; what do you think about these questions?

  6. Sounds like questions for entrapment. Mull’s goal is to have a reason to recommend impeachment of our President Trump. Mull’s team are avoiding the real Russia ties that were with the Hillary and Dem’s. This investigation is the modern movement to oust President Trump and other Republicans (similar to a modern style version of a Coup.)
    Republican supporters and others will unite behind our President if this happens. Stop Mueller, his team, Rosenstein, and destructive dem’s now. It is in the hands of AG Jeff Sessions to take control and get order back to our government. This Special Counsel is the final step to destroy our constitution and America as we have known it.

  7. Your comment is awaiting moderation…..Just delete my comment….at least I am honest and did not curse.

  8. Mueller is a pimp for the DNC and Schumer. Mueller is trying to cover up for Comey, Obama, the Clinton’s, Holder, Reid, Warren, Sanders the commie and Soros. Time to investigate the FBI and Justice Dept with a truly independent prosecutor.

  9. Whatever happened to “I serve at the pleasure of the President”. The Office of The Presidency, regardless of who or what Party occupies it, has the Constitutional Right to hire and fire anybody. That’s the reason it’s called The Executive Branch. Sure, the President might spend political capital doing so, but it is still the right of a President to do so. What is going on now is, as trump would say. it deplorable and disgraceful. There is plenty of Precedence that says that a sitting President can not be prosecuted for doing his job. Muller is a disgrace and so are all of those crybaby demoncrats.
