Trump submits answers to Mueller's Russian Federation inquiry

Share

Blumenthal questioned the legitimacy of Trump's appointment, calling Whitaker "essentially a lackey of the president" because of his criticisms of FBI special counsel Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation.

The details of Trump's responses were not immediately clear, but his lawyers said that now that he had handed over answers to questions from the special counsel, Robert Mueller, the time had come to end the investigation.

Mueller left open the possibility that he would follow up with additional questions on obstruction, though Trump's lawyers - who had long resisted any face-to-face interview - have been especially adamant that the Constitution shields him from having to answer any questions about actions he took as president.

Mueller quizzed the president's knowledge of his son Donald Trump Jr.'s meeting with a Russian lawyer in Trump Tower, Giuliani said. According to the New York Times, Mueller has declined to rule out trying to compel Trump to sit for an interview after reviewing his written answers. "It is time to bring this inquiry to a conclusion", Giuliani's statement read. Trump at least temporarily averts the threat of an in-person interview, which his lawyers have long resisted, while Mueller secures on-the-record statements whose accuracy the president will be expected to stand by for the duration of the investigation.

In 2016, Mr Trump accused Mrs Clinton of putting the U.S. "in danger" over her use of a private email while secretary of state. "President Trump, all his exits blocked, and off-ramps folded up, has settled on rage-tweeting at Bob Mueller as his salve". Trump himself has offered mixed responses. "I was asked a series of questions, I answered them very easily".

"Much of what has been asked raised serious constitutional issues and was beyond the scope of a legitimate inquiry", Giuliani added.

It is unclear whether Mueller would subpoena him to testify, likely setting off a legal and political battle.
