Trump says he has finished answering Mueller probe questions


"But no, the questions were very routinely answered by me".

U.S. President Donald Trump says he has written answers to questions posed by Special Counsel Robert Mueller in his Russian Federation investigation.

"The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess, " Trump tweeted on Thursday as part of a series of overheated morning posts.

Trump said nothing in particular caused him to fire off a number of tweets earlier this week criticizing Mueller's team and its Russian Federation election meddling probe.

President Donald Trump's administration fears that Mueller will indict some of the president's allies and family members, Politico reported on Friday. That decision angered Trump and led to the president repeatedly criticizing his attorney general in public.

Trump and his legal team have resisted attempts to sit down for an in-person meeting with Mueller's team.

Trump stressed Friday that he answered the questions personally, not his lawyers. "I'm working on them", he said, later adding later that he wrote the answers himself and that he "just finished them".

"I'm very happy with nearly all of my cabinet". They are a disgrace to our Nation and don' how many lives the (sic) ruin.

At the news conference, Trump pointed out that North Korea has not tested further missiles amid the talks. "The hostages are home".

A day later, he tried to put a rosier shine on the situation, telling reporters: "I'm sure it will be just fine".

The president continued to maintain his innocence while launching a fresh round of attacks on the probe, saying "there should have never been any Mueller investigation" while claiming it was a waste of millions of dollars.

While the special counsel was publicly quiet in the run-up to last week's midterm elections, his investigation has suddenly returned to the forefront of Washington conversation and cable news chyrons.

"I'm sure they're tricked-up because, you know, they like to catch people", Trump added, referring to questions that he suggested could be created to result in perjury charges.

On Thursday, Trump blasted Mueller's probe in a Twitter tirade, renewing his longstanding accusations that Mueller's team is biased.

It is not clear if these questions were the ones that Trump answered.

The renewed focus on the looming threat from Mueller comes as Trump settles back into the day-to-day routines of governing after the whirlwind campaign in which he spent weeks in front of adoring rally crowds while whipping up his base with harsh rhetoric about migrants moving through Mexico. "But it's all fake news".
