Ahead of a highly anticipated (but still in quesiton) meeting between Special Counsel Robert Mueller and President Trump, a full list of questions from Mueller’s investigative team were released.
It is unclear whether someone from Mueller’s team released the questions or if someone within the Trump legal team documented the list via information obtained by the investigative team.
While Mueller has already said Trump is not under criminal suspicions, he would still value an interview to explore what information he was aware of concerning members of his campaign team – some of which have taken guilty pleas.
One batch of questions regards Trump’s relationship and knowledge of General Michael Flynn, one of the campaign members who plead guilty to lying to the FBI. Another batch concerns Trump’s relationship with former FBI Director James Comey. Yet another batch concern Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who has recused himself from the Russia investigation.
