Obstruction Case Against Trump Strengthens After He Asked Witnesses about Interviews

Posted March 10, 2018

Donald Trump reportedly talked to multiple witnesses in special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation about his probe into possible Trump campaign ties to Russian Federation. Trump allegedly asked him if Mueller was "nice" in his interview.

The investigation-porn that Special Counsel Robert Mueller is committing against Donald Trump and Republican voters all over the nation has reached the zenith of its tolerability.

The president's attorneys also anticipate an interview with special counsel would largely remain focused on the controversial firings of former Federal Bureau of Investigation director James Comey and one-time national security advisor Michael Flynn.

Trump had previously stated that he would be "love" to answer questions from the special counsel and would be prepared to do so under oath.

The US president has previously denied the report, dismissing it as "fake news".

Trump has said he is "looking forward" to speaking with the special counsel's team, but his lawyers have repeatedly emphasized that he would only agree under certain conditions.

In January 2017, Erik Prince, the founder of the private security company Blackwater, met with a Russian official close to Russian President Vladimir Putin and later described the meeting to congressional investigators as a chance encounter that was not a planned discussion of U.S. -Russia relations. While the conversations with the two - White House counsel Don McGahn and former chief of staff Reince Priebus - likely did not amount to witness tampering, experts told the Times, they are potentially problematic. One idea is to suggest a deadline of 60 days from the date of the interview, the person said.

Legal experts tell the Times the conversations probably don't meet the definition of witness tampering, but the paper notes that Trump appears to be ignoring advice from his lawyers that he should avoid appearing to interfere with Mueller's investigation into Russia's tampering with the 2016 United States presidential election. "[And] Mueller's going to say, 'Oh, too bad, the deadline's tomorrow?'"

Comey was sacked by President Trump during his investigation of possible Russian collusion with the Republican's presidential campaign.
