Mueller Wants To Question Trump On Comey, Flynn And Obstruction

Skidmore

Mueller's interrogation would also quiz Trump on Michael Flynn's activities during the presidential transition when he made several secret phone calls with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak about lifting sanctions. The agencies said in a 2017 report that Russian Federation engaged in a targeted effort to influence U.S. voters through propaganda and other means, in order to swing the presidential election in Trump's favor.

Through his questions, Mr. Mueller also tries to tease out Mr. Trump's views on law enforcement officials and whether he sees them as independent investigators or people who should loyally protect him.

The Times published the list Monday night.

Numerous questions surround Mr. Trump's relationship with Mr. Sessions, including the attorney general's decision to recuse himself from the Russian Federation investigation and whether Mr. Trump told Mr. Sessions he needed him in place for protection.

Schiff said, "I want this special counsel to be looking at the issue of money laundering, and I don't recall seeing questions there about, did you obtain financing for your projects from Russian Federation?"

Mueller like to know how much Trump knew about the campaign's alleged role in Russian election meddling, which he has repeatedly blasted as a witch hunt.

Rudy Giuliani recently joined Trump's legal team, with the express objective of dealing with Mueller's investigation and trying to help bring it to a conclusion. Imagine if we'd known then just a fraction of what we know now, like the November 2015 email exchange between Felix Sater, a Trump associate and convicted felon with ties to Russian organized crime, and the Trump lawyer Michael Cohen, recently the subject of an F.B.I. raid.

Mr Flynn was sacked on February 13, 2017, after White House officials said he had misled them about his Russian contacts during the transition period by saying he had not discussed sanctions. He is believed to be cooperating with Mueller.

Trump fired Flynn in February 2017 after he lied to Vice President Pence about his sanction talks with the Russian government. But an interview with Mueller could open Trump up to perjury charges if he gives false statements.

The following day, according to memos written by Mr Comey, Mr Trump cleared the Oval Office of other officials and encouraged Mr Comey to drop the investigation into Mr Flynn. Another question on the list states.
