Special Counsel Reportedly Agrees To Accept Written Answers From Trump

Giuliani's estranged wife writing tell-all book report

Trump fired his shot at the special counsel leading the Russian Federation probe in an interview with the Daily Caller, where he resumed claims that conflicts of interest prevent Mueller - who has already won a conviction of Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort - of having conflicts of interest.

The Special Counsel sent a letter to Trump's lawyers that said he would accept written responses on queries about whether the president conspired with Russian Federation to interference in the presidential election, according to The Reuters.

Mr. Mueller did not say that he was giving up on an interview altogether, including on questions of obstruction of justice.

Trump's legal team and Mueller's investigators have been negotiating for months over whether Trump will be formally interviewed in the probe.

And the special counsel left open the possibility that he may still try to press Trump in person about a second piece of his investigation: whether the president has sought to block the probe since taking office.

"How can you possibly have a man who is that, and then somebody from his law firm came out and said, 'I can't believe they picked Mueller - he hates the president, he hates the president, '" Trump said.

Trump's lawyers have tried to put off a formal interview; they have repeatedly said that to determine whether the Trump campaign conspired with Russia's election interference, Mueller can find the answers in the interviews that his investigators have conducted with witnesses, including senior White House aides and administration officials, and more than 1.4 million documents turned over by the White House.

There is some general sense among the Trump lawyers and Mueller's team that the process could reach its conclusion by the end of September, though this is not certain. "We do not discuss the contents of those discussions".

According to a Tuesday in The New York Times, has shifted his position on whether he wants to answer questions under oath in a personal interview.

Rudy Giuliani, one of Trump's lawyers, did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

"This White House has been the most transparent in history when it comes to investigations or inquiries like this", Sekulow said. You know, he's Comey's best friend.
