Mueller's Russian Federation team reportedly seeks White House records on Trump actions

  • Deputy AG interviewed by Mueller's office report

Mueller has asked for documents on Trump's reasons for firing former national security advisor Michael Flynn and ex-director of the FBI James Comey, theNew York Times reported on Wednesday.

Mueller's office sent a document to the White House detailing 13 different areas investigators want more information about, according to the report.

Opponents of Mr Trump have claimed the firing of Mr Comey was an attempt to obstruct justice.

The Washington Post confirmed the request had been made to the White House, and reported that Mueller had also requested that the White House turn over documents related to the Federal Bureau of Investigation interview of Flynn in January, days after Trump took office. He has also asked for any documents related to a meeting Trump held in the oval office with Russian foreign minister Sergey Lavrov the day after Comey was sacked. Additionally, they are looking at how the White House responded to a Trump Tower meeting between Donald Trump Jr and a Russian lawyer in June 2016.

Ty Cobb, Trump's lead lawyer handling the Russian Federation probe, has said he will turn over many of documents this week.

"What I can assure you is that we're fully cooperating with the special counsel, and we'll continue to do that", he said on "CBS This Morning". It is not clear whether Mueller has made separate document requests elsewhere to examine those subjects.

The list of categories from Mueller reads like a greatest hits of the Trump team's missteps.

The two are powered by the A11 Bionic processor which also comes with a Neural Engine plus an embedded M11 notion coprocessor. She considers the iPhone 8 a solid choice for those upgrading from a much older device, such as the iPhone 6s .

Mr Mueller's investigation along with several congressional committees and the Justice Department are all looking at U.S. intelligence findings indicate Russian-backed hackers tried to sway the presidential election held last November in favour of Mr Trump. The retired lieutenant general was sacked in February after it was revealed that he misled Vice President Mike Pence about December phone calls he had with Kislyak, the Russian ambassador at the time.

"I think the special counselor regulations, and Mueller's appointment, are constitutionally suspect", Fitton said.

Schmidt only mentions three of those 13, but those three are revealing - and indicate that Mueller's interest in the obstruction angle is very serious indeed.

The White House initially explained Comey's firing by saying Trump was acting on the recommendation of Rosenstein, who wrote a scathing memo about Comey's handling of the Hillary Clinton email investigation.

The Russia investigation just took a major leap forward-straight into the Oval Office.

He was said to believe they may have been witness to events and discussions that he is investigating, including the decision to fire Mr Comey.

During a May 3 news briefing, Spicer said that "the president has confidence in the director".
