Special Counsel Reportedly Agrees To Accept Written Answers From Trump

Special Counsel Reportedly Agrees To Accept Written Answers From Trump

Attorneys for President Trump have told Special Counsel Robert Mueller they may agree to submit written answers to his questions in the long-running Russian Federation probe, provided they are restricted to the issue of collusion allegations.

Current lead attorney, Rudy Giuliani, told ABC News last month that his team had submitted a response to Mueller asking to limit the scope of an interview with Trump especially as it relates to obstruction of justice.

He pointed out that Trump's legal team has handed over 1.4 million pages of documents to the special counsel's office.

Following the "kissing" comments, the President went off on a familiar diatribe about the supposed illegitimacy of Mueller's investigation, which has already resulted in almost 40 indictments against Trump associates and Russians.

Special counsel spokesman Peter Carr declined to comment Tuesday.

The Times reports the way the letter was written implies that Mueller could still try to interview President Trump - the questions just might be more limited than previously expected. In March, Mueller raised the prospect of subpoenaing Trump if he refused to be questioned voluntarily.

It's not clear how Trump got the photos or what he does with them. Trump has said there was no collusion and has called the Mueller probe a "witch hunt".

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.

The special counsel, Robert S. Mueller III, eased up on his demands to question President Trump in the Russian Federation investigation, a shift that came as the president's lawyers, who have advised him against sitting for an interview, are fighting his desire to answer investigators' queries.

However, in a new interview with the conservative Daily Caller, the president let on he was also disturbed by something equally scandalous, the fact that Comey and Mueller were so chummy that they frequently hugged and kissed each other - and Trump has pictures to prove it.

Trump's lawyers said that they fear Mueller could accuse Trump of perjury because the presdient remembers key events differently than other witnesses. You know, he's Comey's best friend.

The most important discrepancy relates to a meeting he had with Comey.
