Trump says he wrote answers to Mueller's questions

April FrancisNov 19, 2018

President Trump says that he responded to the special counsel's written questions - not his lawyers- and that he did so quite easily.

The president said he had not yet submitted his answers to investigators.

"You have to always be careful when you answer questions with people that probably have bad intentions", the president said, as he once again attacked Mueller and his investigation. To that end, it has been negotiating for months with the White House over how, when and where Trump might address questions about his role in the matter.

Donald Trump says he has finished answering questions into alleged Russian meddling during the 2016 presidential campaign.

During months of negotiations with the special counsel office, Mr Trump's lawyers have repeatedly counselled the president against sitting down for an in-person interview.

And in a case spun off by Mueller, Michael Cohen, who was the billionaire developer's vice president and fixer at the Trump Organization, pleaded guilty in NY to charges related to hush payments made to women who claimed affairs with Trump.

There is also the criticism he is getting over his choice for acting attorney general, as well as late-arriving election results that have largely been tipping towards House Democrats.

"The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess", Trump tweeted Thursday as part of a series of morning posts.

"They are a disgrace to our Nation and don't care how many lives they ruin".

Trump fired Attorney General Jeff Sessions and named Sessions' chief of staff Matthew Whitaker as acting attorney general on November 7.

A list of questions provided to Trump's legal team in the spring by the special counsel included questions about efforts during the transition to establish a backchannel line of communication to Russian Federation and a 2017 meeting in the Seychelles involving Trump ally Erik Prince, a businessman and founder of the private security company formerly known as Blackwater. The bipartisan legislation, introduced more than a year ago, would give any special counsel a 10-day window to seek expedited judicial review of a firing and put into law existing Justice Department regulations that a special counsel can only be fired for good cause.

One argument against Whitaker was that he has not been confirmed by Senate.

Congressional investigators asked Trump Jr. about the contacts he was making in the early summer of 2016 as he set up the Trump Tower meeting in New York City.

On Thursday, Trump blasted Mueller's probe in a Twitter tirade, renewing his longstanding accusations that Mueller's team is biased. He has undertaken an unlikely public relations tour as he looks to make a deal to reduce his prison sentence.

- Despite his insistence that Americans no longer have to fear North Korea's nuclear program, news of Pyongyang's persistent weapons program made headlines this week.

In 2016, USA intelligence agencies concluded that Russian Federation had used a state-authorised campaign of cyber attacks and fake news stories planted on social media in an attempt to turn the election against Democrat candidate Hillary Clinton.
