Republican Strategist Was Told Mueller Has Documents Linking Trump to Russian Interests During Campaign

Media

Republican strategist Mike Murphy on Monday made his contribution to “Russia speculation night,” telling NBC’s Lawrence O’Donnell an “international businessman” said special counsel Robert Mueller is looking into an agreement Donald Trump had with Russian interests during the 2016 campaign.


“I was walking around [Beverly Hills] and an international businessman I know pretty well, swore me to secrecy said ‘You can say this on TV. A friend of mine got pulled in by Mueller asking about a MOU, a memorandum of understanding, that Trump had with Russian interests during the 2016 campaign and Mueller has the documents,’” Murphy told O’Donnell.

Last week, CNN reported Mueller is probing Trump’s business dealings as he considered running for president. As CNN reported, “Investigators for special counsel Robert Mueller have recently been asking witnesses about Donald Trump’s business activities in Russia prior to the 2016 presidential campaign as he considered a run for president.”

The “international businessman” who spoke with Murphy would seem to track with CNN’s reporting about Mueller’s shifting focus in the Russia probe.
