  • House Intelligence Committee

Robert Mueller, the special counsel in charge of investigating Russian interference in the 2016 USA election delivered a list of questions to President Donald Trump's legal team outlining how a one-on-one interview with Trump might play out.

He says his understanding of the facts at the time of his firing last May don't support President Donald Trump's assertion that there's zero evidence of collusion and that the Russian Federation investigation is a hoax.

In one question obtained by The Times, Mr Mueller asks what Mr Trump knew about campaign staff - including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort - reaching out to Moscow.

Mueller's investigators read the questions to Trump's lawyers, the newspaper said.

The New York Times obtained the list of questions, which are moistly related to a potential obstruction of justice case against Trump.

They also highlight efforts to uncover any steps taken by Trump to fire Mueller himself.

Other key questions revolve around Trump's relationships with his former national security adviser Michael Flynn, attorney general Jeff Sessions, and James Comey, the Federal Bureau of Investigation director that Trump fired in May 2017.

Although Meek Mill is home from prison, he's not exactly "free" just yet. "I've got a lot of important people depending on me". Meek Mill , whose real name Robert Rihmeek Williams , had been in jail for five months after his latest probation violation.

The publication reported that Mueller wanted to ask the president, "What knowledge did you have of any outreach by your campaign, including by Paul Manafort, to Russian Federation about potential assistance to the campaign?"

"As an American citizen, I would expect my president to respect the rule of law. and to cooperate with a lawful, appropriate investigation", he said.

Mueller also wants to know if Trump discussed with any campaign staff arranging a meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin.

"During the campaign, what did you know about Russian hacking, use of social media, or other acts aimed at the campaign?" They provide a detailed look into what Mr. Mueller's team has found and is investigating as it probes whether The Trump Campaign colluded with Russian Federation. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to the Federal Bureau of Investigation about his contacts with Russian operatives during the presidential transition.

Professor Dershowitz admitted he is not sure if Mr. Mueller would accept written answers and might end up issuing a subpoena to President Trump. "Who played a role?"

Trump's legal team is reportedly undecided about whether he should sit for an interview with Mueller. But an interview with Mueller could open Trump up to perjury charges if he gives false statements.
