Trump admin scared Mueller investigation closing in

Trump says written responses go to Mueller team next week

President Donald Trump said Friday he has already penned written answers to questions from special counsel Robert Mueller as part of the former Federal Bureau of Investigation director's probe into Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. "I've answered them very easily", Mr Trump said.

Trump's lawyers have not yet agreed to answer a larger set of questions that relate to Trump's time as president-elect and then as president, Giuliani said. "But.as far as I'm concerned, I like to take everything personally because you do better that way", Trump added.

Trump's lawyers have said Mueller is seeking to trap Trump in a minor lie to be able to accuse him of perjury.

"I haven't submitted them yet...

The witch hunt, as I call it, should never have taken place".

The president did not say when he would turn over the answers to Mueller, but his attorney, Rudy Giuliani, indicated it could happen next week.

And in a case spun off by Mueller, Michael Cohen, who was the billionaire developer's vice president and fixer at the Trump Organization, pleaded guilty in NY to charges related to hush payments made to women who claimed affairs with Trump.

"I'm very happy with nearly all of my cabinet".

The president has met with lawyers almost every day this week in sessions to review his answers, including a four-hour session Wednesday that was frequently interrupted by other business.

He later followed up by tweeting: "With proper Forest Management, we can stop the devastation constantly going on in California ". Wildfires continued to rage on both ends of the state, with gusty winds expected overnight which will challenge firefighters.

"I write answers. My lawyers don't write answers".

Meanwhile, he accused that some questions were designed "by people who probably have bad intentions".

That Trump's tweetstorm and Daily Caller interview came after this series of developments in the Russian Federation investigation could indicate the president is growing increasingly anxious about what Mueller has. The investigators do not care "how many lives they can ruin", he wrote.

"From what I hear, it's ending".

Though he insisted Friday he is "very happy" with how things are going, he tweeted Thursday that the "inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess".

With the midterm elections now over, Mueller faces key decision points in his 18-month-old investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 campaign - a probe that has led to charges against 32 people, including 26 Russians.

These included sections relating to both former national security adviser Michael Flynn, former FBI Director James Comey, former Attorney General Jeff Sessions, and questions about possible coordination between the Trump campaign and Russian Federation.

Democrats and a number of Republicans have raised concerns about Mr Whitaker's appointment, with a bipartisan group of United States senators renewing a push for legislation to protect the special counsel.
