Mueller Prepping a Report About Trump’s ‘Actions While in Office’ and Potential Obstruction of Justice
Robert Mueller apparently spoke to President Trump‘s attorneys last month and had quite a bit to say.
The Washington Post reports tonight that Mueller told Trump’s legal team he is investigating the President but “does not consider him a criminal target at this point.”
Trump is a subject but not a target, and some advisers are reportedly concerned that “subjects of investigations can easily become indicted targets.”
Mueller wants to interview the President and it turns out he’s working on a report specifically about Trump:
The special counsel also told Trump’s lawyers that he is preparing a report about the president’s actions while in office and potential obstruction of justice, according to two people with knowledge of the conversations.
Mueller reiterated the need to interview Trump — both to understand whether he had any corrupt intent to thwart the Russia investigation and to complete this portion of his probe, the people said.
