Mueller will allow Trump to give written answers to some Russian Federation questions

Charles Krupa  The Associated Press FilesU.S. President Donald Trump’s lawyer Rudy Giuliani’s TV-interview assertion that ‘truth isn’t truth’ will surely rank as one of the political head-scratchers of 2018

The special counsel Robert Mueller will reportedly accept some written answers from Donald Trump about collusion with Russian Federation.

"On another significant aspect of the investigation - whether the president tried to obstruct the inquiry itself - Mr. Mueller and his investigators understood that issues of executive privilege could complicate their pursuit of a presidential interview and did not ask for written responses on that matter, according to the letter, which was sent on Friday", the Times reported. It comes after months of wrangling over whether Trump would or would not sit for an interview with the special counsel. For one thing, Trump asserts, Mueller interviewed with Trump for the FBI Director job, and didn't get it, and is presumably disgruntled.

A spokesman for Mueller's office declined to comment.

Jorginho , who has already scored for Chelsea , said he was enjoying the high tempo and physicality of the Premier League. It is also quite hard to explain certain things", Jorginho was quoted as saying by beIN Sports .

In his forthcoming book Fear, the author Bob Woodward reports Trump's then personal attorney John Dowd was convinced that the president would perjure himself in an interview with Mueller. In March, Mueller raised the prospect of subpoenaing Trump if he refused to be questioned voluntarily.

The president made the freaky claims during a wide-ranging interview with the conservative Daily Caller website, whose correspondent asked Trump whether Mueller was interfering in the midterm elections by not ending his Russian Federation probe by an artificial September 1 deadline.

Mr. Trump's legal team has not seen the questions from the special counsel. "Kavanaugh actually has a long résumé", including a decade as a federal judge and years as a lawyer in the George W. Bush White House", Trevor Noah said on Tuesday's Daily Show.

The comparisons ended there, however, as Capuano is already very progressive on various issues, such as Medicare for all. A Pressley campaign insider, meanwhile, posted a video showing the candidate the moment she learned she'd won.

President Donald Trump took his unverified claim that Robert Mueller and James Comey are "best friends" to a new level in an interview - saying the men are so chummy he has photos of them 'hugging and kissing'.

Mueller so far has not requested to ask any questions about obstruction, but included a line in his message to Trump's attorneys that he may want to ask questions about obstruction at some point in the future.

The most important discrepancy relates to a meeting he had with Comey. Trump has said he knew nothing about the meeting before it happened.
