Trump on Mueller Questions Being Leaked to NY Times: It Is 'Disgraceful'

The list reportedly ranges from questioning the president's motivations in firing former FBI director James Comey last May to his treatment of Attorney General Jeff Sessions after his recusal from the Russian Federation investigation.

Although Mr Mueller's team has indicated to Mr Trump's lawyers he is not considered a target, investigators remain interested in whether the US President's actions constitute an obstruction of justice and want to interview him about several episodes in office.

What knowledge did you have of any outreach by your campaign, including by Paul Manafort, to Russian Federation about potential assistance to the campaign?

"Like a matador waving a red cape, someone is torturing President Donald Trump by leaking the questions that could be posed to him by special counsel Robert Mueller", D'Antonio begins.

What discussions did you have regarding terminating the special counsel, and what did you do when that consideration was reported in January 2018?

The issue of whether Trump should sit down with Mueller has been fiercely debated within Trump's legal team, and the disclosure of the question list could influence the decision-making process.

Regardless of why Trump thinks what he thinks, the main takeaway from the leaking of these questions is that the Mueller investigation is wide and broad - and that Trump, in Mueller's mind, can shed lots of light on much of it.

The president commented on the report early Tuesday calling the investigation a "witch hunt".

The questions-which focused on possible collusion as well as obstruction of justice-were swiftly dismissed by the president this morning.

On Monday evening, a source reiterated to CNN that the questions had been written by Trump's legal team, extrapolating from topics discussed with the special counsel, and confirmed the accuracy of topics as reported on by The New York Times.

"If one of the President's lawyers or aides released the questions hoping something good will come of it, disappointment is sure to follow", he concludes.

George Papadopoulos was a foreign policy adviser to the Trump campaign.

In other words, roughly a third of Mr Mueller's questions cut right to the heart of the investigation into possible ties between Mr Trump's team and Russian Federation. He pleaded guilty to lying to the FBI and is also cooperating in the special counsel's investigation.

In one question obtained by the Times, Mr Mueller asks what President Trump knew about campaign staff, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, reaching out to Moscow. "He was insane, a real nut job", Trump told the Russians.

"When he does that, he reveals things that are pieces of the puzzle that they don't know the answers to yet, and that will fill [it] in".
