Dershowitz: Trump Can 'Take Advantage' of Questions Leak

Adjust Comment Print

Mueller has sought for months to question the president, who has in turn expressed a desire, at times, to be interviewed, viewing it as an avenue to end the inquiry more quickly.

"In any interview with a subject, I would want to make sure I had unlimited time", Comey said, when asked his opinion during a packed event at George Washington University sponsored by a local bookstore.

Among the questions Mueller wants to ask are some dealing with his high-profile firing of Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and deputy Andrew McCabe.That will include an ask as to what exactly he meant in that interview with Lester Holt about sacking Comey because the Russian collusion probe was made up by Dems.

The New York Times obtained a list of those questions and published some them on Monday night.

Former FBI Director James Comey is dismissing a House Intelligence Committee report that found no collusion between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

They provide a detailed look into what Mr. Mueller's team has found and is investigating as it probes whether The Trump Campaign colluded with Russian Federation. Trump has denied any collusion or improper activity and called the Mueller investigation a witch hunt.

"I just want somebody that's competent", the president responded.

As per usual of late, House Intelligence Committee Republicans and Democrats issued separate reports last week with the GOP version declaring that there is "no evidence" of collusion between President Donald Trump, or his campaign, and the Russians.

Speaking to CNN, John Dean, the White House counsel for President Richard Nixon, suggested the questions as reported in The Times sounded more like "these are questions somebody wrote down after listening to someone else" rather than necessarily being "designed by the prosecutors".

"After the resignations, what efforts were made to reach out to Mr. Flynn about seeking immunity or possible pardon", another question reads. But an interview with Mueller could open Trump up to perjury charges if he gives false statements. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about those phone calls, which occurred in December 2016.

The list of questions grew out of those negotiations.

The following day, according to memos written by Mr Comey, Mr Trump cleared the Oval Office of other officials and encouraged Mr Comey to drop the investigation into Mr Flynn.
