Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly assembled a list of close to 50 questions he wants to ask President Trump as part of his investigation into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election.
The New York Times reported Monday that it obtained a list of the questions, which include inquiries related to Trump’s business dealings, his relationship with Russia and his communications with ex-staffers who have since been caught up in the probe.
The questions provide a window into what Mueller is interested in learning from Trump as the special counsel’s probe nears the one-year mark.
A handful of the questions focus on communications between Trump or his campaign staffers and Russia.
Mueller prepared to ask Trump about the well-known meeting at Trump Tower that involved Donald Trump Jr. and a Russian lawyer, as well as whether the president himself discussed sanctions on Russia or meeting with Russian President Vladimir Putin during the campaign, the Times reported.
In addition, Mueller reportedly planned to ask, “What knowledge did you have of any outreach by your campaign, including by Paul Manafort, to Russia about potential assistance to the campaign?”
