BREAKING: Mueller Reportedly Asking Whether Trump Knew About Stolen DNC Emails in Advance

Did President Donald Trump know about the stolen DNC emails before they were published by Wikileaks? A new report suggests that special counsel Robert Mueller suspects that the president might have known about them in advance.

According to NBC News, Mueller’s team has been asking “pointed questions” of witnesses about whether Trump not only knew of the emails prior to their publications, and whether the president was involved in the timing of their release.

Mueller’s investigators have also been asking witnesses about the relationship between longtime Trump pal Roger Stone and Wikileaks founder Julian Assange, according to NBC News. The Mueller team has also inquired about policy stances favorable to Russia which have been adopted by Trump.
