Here Are the Primary Topics Mueller Reportedly Wants to Discuss with Trump

Special counsel Robert Mueller has indicated four main topics his team would like to discuss in a sit-down interview with Donald Trump, CNN reports.

Those include: Trump’s role in crafting a misleading statement on Donald Trump Jr.’s June 2016 campaign meeting with Russians at Trump Tower, “the circumstances surrounding” that meeting, and the president’s decision to fire former FBI director James Comey and onetime national security adviser Michael Flynn, two sources told the media company.

According to CNN, “the bulk” of Mueller’s questions pertain to Trump’s decision to fire Comey and Flynn—but are “not the extent” of the special counsel’s probe.

The reports notes “both sides” are close to reaching an agreement “on whether there will be a sit-down interview” between Trump and Mueller. The president is reportedly “champing at the bit” to speak with the special counsel, despite fears from his legal team that Trump risks perjuring himself.
