Trump Provides Written Answers to Mueller’s Questions on Russia’s Election Interference: Lawyer

Donald Trump and Robert Mueller

On Tuesday, Mr Giuliani confirmed that Mr Trump's answers had been handed over to investigators, adding that the president had provided "unprecedented co-operation" and that it was time to "bring this inquiry to a conclusion".

The answers represent the first time Trump has given his own version of events to the special counsel's team in the 11 months ago since Mueller first asked for a sit-down interview with the president.

Other questions may have touched on WikiLeaks founder Julian Assange and Roger Stone, a longtime Trump ally with ties to WikiLeaks, who also is under investigation.

Separately, a report in the New York Times says that Mr Trump earlier this year requested that prosecutions be opened against his 2016 presidential opponent Hillary Clinton and the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey.

The step is a milestone in the negotiations between Trump's attorneys and special counsel Robert Mueller's team over whether and when the president might sit for an interview.

Trump lawyer, Jay Sekulow, said the questions related to the special counsel investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election, according to ABC News. If Trump's responses are deemed satisfactory, he moves past the threat of an in-person interview, which he and his lawyers want to avoid.

Apple slashes production on three iPhone models

U.S. prosecutors are also preparing to pursue a criminal case against Assange, having obtained a sealed indictment that was revealed in an unrelated criminal case filing last week.

After his appointment, Senate Democrat leader Chuck Schumer said the president risked creating a "constitutional crisis" if he sought to impede the Mueller investigation.

Last week Mr Trump said he had answered the questions "very easily".

Trump joins a list of recent presidents to be questioned as part of a criminal investigation.

"So amusing to see little Adam Schitt talking about the fact that acting Attorney General Matt Whitaker was not approved by the Senate, but not mentioning the fact that Bob Mueller (who is highly conflicted) was not approved by the Senate!"

"I feel like I'm back in seventh grade here, where we have juvenile name-calling", said Congressman Mike Quigley, a Democrat from IL and member of the House intelligence committee, on CNN's New Day. Clinton was subpoenaed to appear before the Whitewater grand jury, but investigators withdrew the subpoena after he agreed to appear voluntarily.
