Trump Says Mueller's Leaked Questions Don't Involve Collusion. (Actually, They Do.)

Trump Says Mueller's Leaked Questions Don't Involve Collusion. (Actually, They Do.)

President Donald Trump, however, took a dim view of this media leak, calling it "disgraceful" and declaring that the entire "investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information".

Trump incorrectly claimed there were no questions on the list about collusion, which he dismissed as "a made up, phony crime".

The list includes questions about Mr. Trump's firings of former FBI Director James Comey and former National Security Adviser Michael Flynn, his treatment of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and a meeting at the Trump Tower between campaign officials and a Russian offering dirt on Hillary Clinton, The Times said.

Mueller is also reportedly hoping to gauge a better idea of Trump's relationship with his family and close aides and the motivation behind his aggressive tweets.

The New York Times late Monday published the almost four dozen questions to Trump's lawyers.

Pittsburgh's Kris Letang scored roughly 11 minutes later with a point shot while Holtby had two layers of screens in front of him. With Crosby and Malkin on the team, the Penguins have never lost a playoff series in which they took a two-games-to-none lead.

Barbara McQuade, a former USA attorney from the Eastern District of MI, said one question stood out: Campaign outreach from Manafort to Russian Federation about potential assistance with the campaign.

The Times said it obtained the list from someone outside Trump's legal team.

"Mueller is unlikely to include a false premise in a question, and so he must have heard from some source, such as Richard Gates, perhaps, that Manafort or others reached out to Russian Federation", she said.

In fact, it appears Mueller has several questions for the President aimed at getting to the heart of allegations of collusion between the Trump campaign and Moscow - and the President's knowledge of those efforts.

Special counsel Robert Mueller's questions for a potential interview with President Trump have leaked to the press.

Regarding the decision to fire Mr. Comey: When was it made? Why? "The focus is overwhelmingly on possible obstruction of justice", said William Jeffress, who represented Scooter Libby in the Valerie Plame leak case, noting that they mostly focused on the Russian Federation investigation itself, rather than Trump's campaign. Daniels alleged that she had an affair with the President some ten years ago and that the non-disclosure agreement she signed is invalid.

The newspaper also says the list contains questions about any discussions Trump had about possibly pardoning Flynn or firing Mueller himself. "I doubt that the Trump people will be reassured-hence, the leak", Bauer said.

Former campaign adviser Michael Caputo told CNBC he had paid thousands just for serving as a witness in the House Intelligence Committee's probe into Russia's possible involvement in the presidential elections - about $25,000 (CA$32,152) per hearing, he revealed. He pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and is also cooperating in the special counsel's investigation.

Former federal prosecutors reacted to the leaked questions on CNN. "He was insane, a real nut job", Trump told the Russians.
