Donald Trump produced the one piece of paper that left Robert Mueller terrified
Robert Mueller and his rigged witch hunt reached a dangerous new phase.
The special counsel prepared for the end game in his quest to bring down Donald Trump.
But Trump produced the one piece of paper that has Mueller terrified.
Donald Trump agreed to submit written answers to Robert Mueller’s questions about Russian collusion.
Trump surprised Mueller by announcing he would turn over the answers by Thanksgiving.
President Donald Trump will give special counsel Robert Mueller written responses to a slate of questions as early as Tuesday.
Trump’s lawyers set an informal Thanksgiving deadline for the president to finalize his responses on topics surrounding the Russian hacking of the 2016 election, and he’s almost ready to submit them, according to two sources familiar with the conversations.
The president’s written answers — which carry the same legal burden for truthfulness as an in-person interview — are likely to be submitted as Trump settles into his Mar-a-Lago club in South Florida for the Thanksgiving holiday. Trump is scheduled to depart Washington, D.C., on Tuesday afternoon.
Trump over the past week has spent several hours with his legal team, including Rudy Giuliani, Jay Sekulow and Jane Raskin, finalizing his answers to questions from the special counsel focusing on his time before he was sworn in as president.
Trump turning in these answers speeds up the timeline for Mueller to wrap up his probe.
Generally, prosecutors get statements from figures of Trump’s level as the last thing they do.
If Mueller was hoping to catch Trump off guard or in a trap, he was sorely mistaken.
Trump declared the answers were “easy” in a Fox News interview.
His testimony should put an end to the collusion portion of the investigation.
