Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team wants to interview White House staffers who may have been involved or witnessed a misleading statement about Donald Trump Jr.’s meeting with a Russian lawyer at Trump Tower, CNN reports

Mueller’s team is trying to learn how the statement aboard Air Force One was crafted and who was involved.

The investigation may determine whether anyone from the White House was trying to obstruct justice by intentionally issuing a misleading statement.

CNN wrote:

The interviews with White House staffers who were aboard Air Force One have not begun, the sources said. They currently involve only a small number of people, but the sources cautioned that number could increase. At this time, Mueller has not asked to interview President Trump. Trump Jr. was on the Hill Thursday for an interview with the Senate Judiciary Committee.

In his first response to a report this summer about his meeting at Trump Tower, the President’s son claimed in a statement that he “primarily discussed a program about the adoption of Russian children” during his meeting with a Russian lawyer he believed to be connected to the Russian government. That claim was later debunked by multiple accounts of the meeting.

White House special counsel Ty Cobb questioned whether a reporter was on drugs for asking why the president didn’t send his letter notifying James Comey that he was being fired as FBI director.

The unprofessional question came in an email exchange between Cobb and Business Insider’s Natasha Bertrand, who wrote a story about how the letter may be used as evidence in the obstruction of justice case against President Trump. 

Cobb declined to say why the letter was never sent to Comey and asked Bertrand, “Are you on drugs?”

Bertrand shared the exchange on Twitter.

“Cobb supposedly has a great reputation and is a very respected lawyer,” Bertrand told HuffPost. “He was brought in to bring some discipline to the whole operation. So I wasn’t expecting that response to what I thought was a pretty basic question.” 

Trump’s & His Family’s Vacation Habits Are Draining Secret Service Budget

President Trump’s large family and their habit of traveling to several residences on the East Coast have left the Secret Service without enough money to pay hundreds of agents. 

The agency has already exceeded its annual caps for salary and overtime for more than 1,000 agents, with more than three months left before the budget is replenished, Secret Service Director Randolph “Tex” Alles told the USA Today. 

In the first seven months, the Secret Service has depleted its budget because of weekend trips to Trump’s properties in Florida, New Jersey and Virginia and his adult children’s frequent business trips and vacation across the country and world.

“The president has a large family, and our responsibility is required in law,” Alles said. “I can’t change that. I have no flexibility.”

Under the Obama administration, Secret Service agents protected 31 people. That number has increased to 42 people under Trump.

The Secret Service, which has come under fire for its lax protection of the White House, wasted no time Wednesday arresting a man who tried to jump over a barricade near the White House grounds.

Officers arrested the suspect as he tried to leap over bike tracks near a park adjacent to the Eisenhower Executive Office building.

“The individual was charged with unlawful entry and transported to the Metropolitan Police Department,” the Secret Service said in a statement.

The incident forced authorities to close Pennsylvania Avenue to traffic around 4:30 p.m. as agents with long guns spread out across the North Lawn.

Fence-jumpers have been a constant problem for the Secret Service for the past two years.
