ㅤ"He admitted to making false statements in 2017 to the U.S. Senate Select Committee on Intelligence about a plan to build a Trump Tower in Moscow.

Mueller to accept some written answers from Trump: NYT

ㅤ"Special counsel Robert Mueller has reportedly agreed to accept some written answers from President Trump regarding whether Trump’s 2016 campaign worked with Russia amid Russia’s election interference.
ㅤThe New York Times reports that Mueller sent a letter to Trump’s legal team late last week saying he would accept some of Trump’s responses in writing.
ㅤHowever, on the question of whether the President tried to obstruct the probe itself, Mueller’s team acknowledged that executive privilege issues could put a wrinkle in their push for an interview with Trump and didn’t ask for written responses on that matter, the Times reported."

Giuliani: Trump legal team may try to block Mueller from releasing final report

ㅤ"Giuliani made the comments in reference to the impending report that Mueller will file to Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein at the conclusion of his investigation into Russian election interference.
ㅤThe New Yorker notes that Rosenstein will then have the ability to release the report to Congress and the public. But Giuliani has signaled that the President may move to stop that from happening — a development that could lead to a battle over whether Rosenstein is allowed to disclose the report.
ㅤGiuliani told the New Yorker that Trump’s original legal counsel struck a deal with the special counsel reserving the White House the right to object to the public disclosure of information covered by executive privilege."

Senate Judiciary Committee drafts bill to protect Robert Mueller from Donald Trump firing

SENATE JUDICIARY COMMITTEE DRAFTS BILL TO PROTECT ROBERT MUELLER FROM DONALD TRUMP FIRINGp22article212020wp.png

ㅤ”Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell has flatly ruled out bringing the bill to the floor even if it clears the committee.
ㅤDemocrats said they hope a strong committee vote will persuade the Kentucky Republican to change his mind.
ㅤEven then, it would have to clear the House, and after that Mr. Trump would likely veto the legislation. There’s little chance of getting a two-thirds vote in both chambers to overturn a veto.”

ㅤô¿ô …In other words, rather than take another shot at healthcare, build on the success of tax reform or just do nothing and allow the GOP to focus on campaigning, Grassley and Alexander want to join the Democrats and treat the people to yet another pointless circus.
ㅤThen again, Grassley is pissed about the tariffs and Alexander has been shut out of the President’s inner circle, so there could be an attempt at revenge happening here. McConnell is correct to call his fellow Republicans on their BS.

Robert Mueller tells Trump lawyers president not criminal target: report

ROBERT MUELLER TELLS TRUMP LAWYERS PRESIDENT NOT CRIMINAL TARGET: REPORTp03article220914wp.png

ㅤ”Citing ‘three people familiar with the discussions,’ The Washington Post reported Tuesday evening that Mr. Mueller told the President’s attorneys that his actions are a ‘subject’ of the investigation. But the special counsel told them he does not think there is enough evidence to bring charges.
ㅤThe statements were made during an early March discussion on whether Mr. Trump will agree to an interview, the Post reported.
ㅤIn those negotiations, Mr. Mueller reiterated that he wanted to speak with the President on obstruction of justice issues ‘to understand whether he had any corrupt intent to thwart the Russia investigation and to complete this portion of his probe,’ the Post wrote.
ㅤThose mixed signals — saying both that Mr. Trump is not a target and trying to coax him into an interview — produced a split within the Trump legal team, the Post reported.”

His attorneys fear that Mr. Trump may unintentionally or carelessly perjure himself.
