Trump blasts 'leak' of list of Mueller questions to president

Special counsel Robert Mueller hopes to ask President Donald Trump dozens of open-ended questions as part of his inquiry into Russian meddling in the 2016 election. The Ukraine-related changes to the Republican Party platform.

CNN analyst Michael Zeldin said Tuesday that the grammatical errors in a leaked list of questions from special counsel Robert Mueller indicate the list may have been released by the White House.

According to the newspaper, numerous questions centre on the obstruction issue, including Trump's reaction to Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal from the Russian Federation investigation, a decision Trump has angrily criticised. "No questions on Collusion", Trump wrote in one post on Twitter. Another asks Trump whether he discussed any meetings with Russian President Vladimir Putin and Russian sanctions during the campaign.

Trump's comment about how it is "disgraceful" that Mueller's questions were leaked is ironic, given that it appears the leak came from someone in his inner circle.

Hannity's talk of an anonymous leak from Mueller's team contradicts the conventional wisdom that the questions were leaked by someone from the Trump legal team - likely in an effort to make the president reconsider his earlier eagerness to sit down with Mueller under oath.

In one question obtained by the Times, Mr Mueller asks what President Trump knew about campaign staff, including his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, reaching out to Moscow.

As a precautionary measure, local officials ordered all residents within a three-mile radius around the refinery to evacuate. Mattson gathered up her dogs, Molly and Kasey, at home and pointed her auto toward Duluth, Minn., usually a 10-minute drive.

Aside from collusion, Mueller also reportedly wants to ask Trump a series of questions about former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey, and Attorney General Jeff Sessions.

D'Antonio goes on to speculate that someone on Trump's team leaked the questions as a way to get Trump's attention and show him just how serious the Mueller probe into Russian interference in the 2016 presidential election is for the president.

This question addresses documents written by a retired British spy, Christopher Steele, who said that Russian Federation had gathered compromising information on Mr. Trump.

In a subsequent tweet, Trump claimed that "i$3 t would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened!" The Times report said it had condensed and paraphrased the questions themselves.

Mr Mueller was appointed as special counsel following Mr Trump's firing of Mr Comey last May. Trump and his supporters say those documents included official secrets and so the descriptions about them in the press after his firing, and since then by Comey, amount to an improper breach.
