Mueller Refuses Trump Lawyers' Request to Respond in Writing to Interview Questions

Mueller Refuses Trump Lawyers' Request to Respond in Writing to Interview Questions

President Donald Trump calls them his "warriors": a band of four House Republicans defending Trump with a relentless counterattack against the Justice Department's Russian Federation investigation that thrills the president even as it unsettles some House GOP colleagues who think they're going too far.

Barrack, a real estate investor who has been described as the President's "loyal whisperer", has known Trump for decades and was involved in the campaign. Trump tweeted on Monday.

TS Ellis, appointed by President Reagan in 1987, questioned whether Mr Mueller had exceeded his authority in filing tax and fraud charges against Mr Trump's former campaign chairman, Paul Manafort.

Mueller is a longtime Republican. The special counsel's office Monday declined to comment on Trump's question.

Trump has recently taken the position that what the special counsel is investigating as possible obstruction of justice is, in reality, Trump fighting back against what he considers to be false accusations.

The president has said that the investigation is led by Democrats, even though Mueller is a longtime Republican.

Trump has previously railed about 13 "hardened" Democrats on the special counsel team. Some members of his team made political contributions to Democrats, including Clinton.

Trump's legal team, according to Giuliani, also has a list of demands: They want some topics to be "off-limits", to set a time limit for the interview, and "to know whether the interview would become public, and whether they would have the chance to issue a rebuttal to anything alleged by the special counsel". Mueller revealed that the original appointment order was left vague to protect sensitive information, and that the memo was used to address the specifics of the investigation.

The Post said Mueller had raised the possibility of a subpoena after Trump's lawyers said the president had no obligation to talk with federal investigators involved in the probe.

Trump then pivoted to the FBI-the agency that has drawn the ire of the president, as well as his most ardent supporters who claim there is a conspiracy within its ranks to take down the president-before returning to the Mueller probe.

When Americans were asked in January the same question, 73 percent said the president should cooperate and be interviewed, while only 22 percent said he shouldn't.
