Robert Mueller Requests Documents from White House for Russia Probe

Robert Mueller asks White House to turn over documents about Donald Trump's conduct- reports

The special counsel in the investigation into Russia's meddling in the election wants to know about the president's actions while in office. Per Comey's later testimony, Trump asked him to "let" the Flynn investigation "go".

Mueller is asking the White House for documents related to some of Trump's most scrutinized actions while in office.

The Oval Office meeting with Kislyak and Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, meanwhile, may take the cake as far as unforced errors.

Mr. Cobb was heard talking about a White House lawyer he deemed "a [Don] McGahn spy" and saying Mr. McGahn had "a couple documents locked in a safe" that he seemed to suggest he wanted access to.

"We can't comment on any specific requests being made or our conversations with the special counsel", he said.

Earlier this week, CNN reported that USA investigators wiretapped former Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort under special court orders, both before and after the November presidential election.


According to both reports, the Mueller team has organized its document requests into 13 different subject areas.

The president also faced criticism for the delay in dismissing Flynn after receiving warnings that the former intelligence officer had mislead the public - and Vice President Pence - about the nature of a December phone call with the Russian ambassador.

But the questioning is nonetheless an indication of investigators' continued interest in the circumstances surrounding Comey's ouster, and whether it constituted an effort to obstruct an investigation into potential coordination between Russian Federation and the Trump campaign.

USA officials said Flynn had told the vice president that he had only exchanged holiday greetings with Kislyak, when in fact the two men had discussed economic sanctions against Russian Federation.

Special counsel Robert Mueller arrives at the U.S. Capitol for closed meeting with members of the Senate Judiciary Committee June 21, 2017 in Washington, DC. The special counsel wants any White House documents about the decision-making that led to Comey's firing, and about all meetings Comey had with Trump. "It obviously is relevant to his reasons for firing Comey, and thus to the obstruction investigation", O'Sullivan wrote. Then the day after he was sacked, President Trump pulled then-FBI Director James Comey aside to talk.

Over the last few weeks, White House lawyer Ty Cobb began sending a series of records to the special counsel.
