Mueller Wants to Ask Trump 49 Questions on Collusion, Russian Ties

Special Counsel Robert Mueller, via FBI.

Special counsel Robert Mueller, who is investigating Russia’s meddling during the election, has more than four dozens questions that he wants President Trump to answer to determine whether he interfered with the probe or colluded with Moscow to undermine the democratic process.

The New York Times received a copy of the questions, which provide the best insight yet into Mueller’s expanding investigation.

The special counsel team handed over the questions to Trump’s lawyers as Mueller tries to convince the president to sit down for an interview under oath. 

While many of the questions touch on topics that have already been reported, some have never been made public, such as whether Trump was aware of anyone outreach by his presidential campaign, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, to Russia for help during the election.

The questions range from the president’s motivation for firing FBI Director James Comey to any discussions Trump had with his longtime personal attorney, Michael Cohen, about a real estate deal in Moscow. Mueller also wants to ask Trump if he was aware if his son-in-law, Jared Kushner, tried to create a back channel to Russia.

One question focuses on whether Trump had any contacts with Roger Stone, a political adviser who suggested he had inside information about the hacking of Democratic emails.

Whether Mueller gets to ask those questions to Trump remains unknown. While the president said he wanted to sit down for an interview, his attorneys have advised him not to and privately expressed concern that he will commit perjury.
