Trump Slams Mueller: "No Questions on Collusion"

Bombshells & Black Holes House Intel Report on Russia Collusion Finally Released

What involvement did you have concerning platform changes regarding arming Ukraine?

In one question obtained by the Times, Mueller asks what Trump knew about campaign staff, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, reaching out to Moscow. So far, money is on someone from Team Trump having leaked the material. So even if Mueller finds no evidence of collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign, for instance, he could still potentially allege the President obstructed justice based on actions he may have taken during the investigation. "No questions on Collusion", Trump wrote in one post on Twitter. He attended that Trump Tower meeting, which was set up by Donald Trump Jr after the candidate's son was told Russia had information "that would incriminate" Hillary Clinton that was part of the Russian' government's support for Mr Trump.

Trump blasted the leak on Tuesday morning, calling it "disgraceful" that the questions made it out to the media.

Despite Trump's claim that the Mueller questions do not touch on collusion, there are reportedly several such questions, including "what knowledge did you have of any outreach by your campaign, including by Paul Manafort, to Russian Federation about potential assistance to the campaign?" and "What discussions did you have during the campaign regarding any meeting with Mr. Putin?" The Times notes that the questions were read by Mueller's team to Trump's lawyers, who "compiled them into a list".

Mueller has brought several charges against Manafort, but none are for any crimes related to Russian election interference during the 2016 campaign.

In a second tweet, President Trump said: "It would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened".

Mueller's list of at least four dozen questions include ones on Trump's ties to Russian Federation and others to determine whether the president obstructed the inquiry itself, the New York Times reported late Monday.

The Times obtained a list of the questions, which range from Mr Trump's motivations for firing former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey a year ago to contacts Mr Trump's campaign had with Russians. That document was provided to The Times by a person outside Mr. Trump's legal team. Another question asks what the president may have known about a possible attempt by his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, to set up a back channel with Russian Federation before Mr Trump's inauguration. As head of the FBI, Mr. Comey was leading the investigation before he was sacked by Mr. Trump in May 2017.

Other legal veterans said investigators and Trump's lawyers appear to be engaged in a public, high-stakes showdown over the issue of an interview.
