Trump Says He's Giving Mueller Questions a Personal Touch

16 November 2018

The special counsel has been given the authority to look into "any links and/or coordination between the Russian government and individuals associated with the campaign of President Donald Trump; and any matters that arose or may arise directly from the investigation".

"You always have to be careful answering questions for people who have bad intentions", he said of the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director.

The president did not say Friday when he would turn his answers over to Mueller.

Trump also was asked Friday about his recent tweets, which seemed to betray a sense of frustration, where he called the Mueller probe "illegal" and said, without evidence, that Mueller's team was shouting at defendants. "I wrote the answers", he said.

The White House fears that Mueller will indict some of the president's allies and family members, Politico reported, citing unnamed officials working for or in contact with the White House. "You know changes are made because they're always made after the midterms", he said. "Folks are preparing for the worst".

Trump and his lawyers had been in negotiations with Mueller's team over how the president would be questioned as part of the investigation, including whether he would appear in person.

Indian Grand Prix was staged from 2011 to 2013 with Sebastian Vettel winning all three races for Red Bull. However, his comments did not go down well with fans in India and drew their ire on social media.

There should have never been an investigation, he argued, because there had been no wrongdoing by him or his campaign during the 2016 election. "They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts".

"I was asked a series of questions".

Tensions have risen even higher over the probe since Trump last week forced out Jeff Sessions as United States attorney general and named Matthew Whitaker as his replacement on an acting basis.

Mueller already has brought charges against a series of former Trump aides, including his former campaign chairman and a former United States national security adviser, as well as a number of Russian individuals and entities.

Jeffrey Cramer, a former federal prosecutor who spent 12 years at the Justice Department, echoed that assessment.
