Trump blasts 'leak' of list of Mueller questions to president

Bombshells & Black Holes House Intel Report on Russia Collusion Finally Released

Mr Mueller also plans on asking Mr Trump about his election campaign's possible co-ordination with Russian Federation, according to the New York Times, which said it obtained the list from someone outside of the president's attorneys.

Jim Schultz, a former Trump White House lawyer, saw a "downside" to making the questions public, because it will be hard for Mueller to narrow the scope of the investigation.

I'm no lawyer - sorry Mom! - but those tweets seem like Trump missing the forest for the trees.

Special Counsel Mueller has been investigating allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation for almost a year. One question suggests that former campaign chief Paul Manafort sought help from the Russians: "What knowledge did you have of any outreach by your campaign, including by Paul Manafort, to Russia about potential assistance to the campaign?" "Clearly a leak by the special counsel's office again with anonymous sources".

At the core of the collusion allegations is the so-called Steele dossier, a compilation of opposition research on Trump funded by the Clinton campaign and the Democratic National Committee.

He is a former assistant to Mr. Mueller and said that lawyers would not write questions in the way that the New York Times report has them listed.




The topics involve questions about Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former FBI Director James Comey, Attorney General Jeff Sessions and any Russian coordination with his presidential campaign, according to the newspaper.

Additional questions center on Michael Flynn, Trump's former national security adviser, who has pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his discussions on sanctions against Russia with Russian Ambassador Sergey Kislyak during the presidential transition. He has said it was because of how Comey handled himself in the 2016 election. And, Trump reportedly expressed relief to a group of Russian officials in the wake of firing Comey. "He was insane, a real nut job", Trump told the Russians.

Trump issued a second tweet Tuesday morning saying that he could not obstruct justice for a crime he didn't commit. Mr Flynn is now cooperating with Mr Mueller's investigators. The Times notes that the questions were read by Mueller's team to Trump's lawyers, who "compiled them into a list".

That's a whole lot of ground. The connective tissue in all of those story lines is cash - whether it's Trump's own, money moving through Michael Cohen or the financial dealings of Trump son-in-law Jared Kushner.

The late Monday leak revealed that Mueller would like to press Trump with probing, open-ended questions that could prove problematic for a president who often has trouble sticking to a script and frequently offers contradictory statements.
The questions mainly concern a potential coverup. That is a very big deal.
