Mueller's Questions Focus on Obstruction, Russia Ties

Here Are The Questions Robert Mueller Wants To Ask Trump

Mueller's far-reaching inquiry could determine whether Trump tried obstructing justice in sacking Comey or whether his presidential campaign colluded with Russian Federation during the 2016 election, according to a list of more than 40 questions obtained by the New York Times on Monday.

The Times lists the questions here.

Anyway, without suspicion of collusion to pursue, the question now is what is special counsel Robert S. Mueller III's investigation about? The Times said it obtained the list from a person outside Trump's legal team.

Most of the questions reported by the Times ask what Trump knew of certain events, like the June 2016 meeting with the Russian lawyer, or what was he thinking when he did or said something, like firing former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

Comey, who took detailed notes of his interactions with Trump, said later he believed Trump fired him to undermine the FBI's Russian Federation probe.

It remains unclear whether Mueller is investigating Manafort's campaign activities.

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

"It is not clear whether Mr. Mueller knows something new, but there is no publicly available information linking Mr. Manafort, the former campaign chairman, to such outreach", The Times noted.

"When did you become aware of the Trump Tower meeting?" one question asks.

Mueller is leading the investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 election and if there were any ties between Moscow and Trump campaign associates.

Regarding Flynn, Mueller wants to know what Trump knew about the retired general's phone calls with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak.

So far, four people, including Flynn, have pleaded guilty to lying to investigators in the Russian Federation inquiry.

Speaking before a friendly audience, which often broke into applause, Comey spoke about his observations of Trump, Mueller's investigation and the impact Trump's presidency is having on the American political landscape.

As head of the FBI, Comey was leading the investigation before he was sacked by Trump in May 2017. "Who played a role?"

Previously, Trump said he would be willing to sit down for an interview under oath with Mueller.

The development comes as Trump's lawyers and Mueller search for some middle ground in negotiations for that one-on-one interview.
