Donald Trump asked key witnesses if Russian Federation investigators were 'nice'

Trump, who has gone back and forth about whether he'd be willing to be interviewed, would sit down with Mueller's investigators if the special counsel agrees to wrap up the probe within 60 days, a person familiar with the matter told the Wall Street Journal.

Trump's lawyers believe Mueller will mostly focus on whether Trump obstructed justice by firing ex-FBI Director James Comey.

All Mueller has done so far is to financially ruin good, solid, decent people like Michael Flynn by charging them with minor, non-collusion-related offenses that he holds over their heads in the hope of their spilling the beans on Trump and making himself a hero with the inside-Washington, cocktail party, wine sipping, establishment swamp dwellers. The real concern for the White House is that these conversations did not occur through lawyers, as is common practice in order to ensure they are shielded by attorney-client privilege.

Robert Mueller's team, which is now investigating the alleged Russian interference in the us presidential election and trying to determine if the real estate mogul's campaign colluded with the Kremlin to affect the outcome of the 2016 vote, is apparently well-aware of at least two occasions where the commander-in-chief questioned witnesses who have testified before the special counsel about the probe.

The two witnesses in question are White House counsel Don McGahn II, and former Chief of Staff and RNC Chair Reince Priebus.

The lawyers are also considering whether to seek an agreement with Mueller "on the scope of his questioning of the president", the Journal reported.

The incidents are interesting in light of Mr Mueller's probe into whether Mr Trump attempted to obstruct the Russian Federation investigation.

This official described the President's discussion with Priebus as appropriate.

Legal experts were skeptical that the special counsel would be open to Team Trump's requests.

"Someone could walk in the door on the day before their proposed deadline and say, 'I've got some information that's going to blow your minds.' ..."

Now none of this is proof that Trump colluded with the Russians during the 2016 campaign.
