Mueller Reportedly Looking to Question Trump ‘In the Coming Weeks’ About Flynn, Comey Ousters
Robert Mueller is looking to interview President Trump soon.
Special counsel Robert S. Mueller III is seeking to question President Trump in the coming weeks about his decisions to oust national security adviser Michael Flynn and FBI Director James B. Comey, according to two people familiar with his plans.
Mueller’s interest in the events that led Trump to push out Flynn and Comey indicates that his investigation is intensifying its focus on possible efforts by the president or others to obstruct or blunt the special counsel’s probe.
The report also says Trump’s team “hopes to provide Trump’s testimony in a hybrid form”––some in a written statement, some of it “face-to-face.”
This news comes on the heels of reporting Mueller’s office spoke to Jeff Sessions last week and James Comey last year.
