Special counsel Robert Mueller has some questions about President Donald Trump's musings on Twitter, in which Trump has posted strongly worded messages about people directly and indirectly connected to the Russian Federation investigation, The New York Times reported on Monday night.

The brunt of what special counsel Robert Mueller plans to grill President Trump on - should he agree to an interview - is how he treated former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey before and after his infamous firing.

The questions Mueller wants to ask Trump span almost every thread of the special counsel's investigation, including actions Trump took that may expose him to obstruction of justice allegations, among other things.

He was charged past year in Mueller's probe along with a former business associate, Richard Gates, of hiding millions of dollars made from lobbying work in Ukraine from USA authorities. "What knowledge did you have of any outreach by your campaign, including by Paul Manafort to Russian Federation about potential assistance to the campaign", one question reads, according to The Times.

"To obstruct and prevent", she says, "the American people from actually knowing what's happened with this whole Russia-collusion-with-Trump investigation".

They also highlight efforts to uncover any steps taken by Trump to fire Mueller himself.




Two weeks ago, Trump recruited to his legal team former NY mayor Rudy Giuliani, who said he would try to reach a deal with Mueller on how the president would cooperate with the probe. Trump has repeatedly denied collusion.

The Times lists the questions here. "That document was provided to The Times by a person outside Mr. Trump's legal team", The Times said. Flynn pleaded guilty to lying to Federal Bureau of Investigation agents about those phone calls, which occurred in December 2016.

Mueller's interrogation would also quiz Trump on Michael Flynn's activities during the presidential transition when he made several secret phone calls with Russian ambassador Sergey Kislyak about lifting sanctions.

Previously, Trump said he would be willing to sit down for an interview under oath with Mueller. Mr Flynn is now cooperating with Mr Mueller's investigators.

But despite the Trump haters' best attempts to make something old into something new, the "informant" craze only had a half-life of about 48 hours.
