"Now, the questions were very routinely answered by me".

President Trump recently confirmed he has finished answering written questions for special counsel Robert Mueller's investigation. 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.

Mueller was appointed as special counsel in May 2017, after Trump fired FBI Director James Comey and his critics accused him of obstructing the FBI investigation into claims by Democrats that his campaign colluded with Russian Federation in 2016.

"I've answered them very easily - very easily", the president said at an Oval Office event. The president has repeatedly denied any such collusion with Moscow.

The source would not say if the concerns have been conveyed to Mueller's team.

Trump said he suspected some of the questions were created to be pitfalls and catch him in a "perjury trap" - to induce to him to lie about matters for which prosecutors might already have contradictory evidence. The special counsel had signalled a willingness to accept written answers on matters of collusion but Trump's attorney, Rudy Giuliani, has said repeatedly that president would not answer Mueller's questions on possible obstruction of justice.

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

It said almost 5,500 firefighters were battling the blaze and it did not expect it to be fully contained for another two weeks. He said authorities were making the list public so people could see if they're on it, and let authorities know they are safe.

"The inner workings of the Mueller investigation are a total mess".

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

He went on to say the Mueller probe never should have happened, and called it a "hoax" and a "waste of taxpayer money".

The president said he hasn't submitted them because he's "been a bit busy".

For months, Trump has told confidants he fears that Donald Trump Jr., perhaps inadvertently, broke the law by being untruthful with investigators in the aftermath of a June 2016 Trump Tower meeting with a Kremlin-connected lawyer, according to one Republicans close to the White House.

On Thursday, Trump blasted Mueller's probe in a Twitter tirade, renewing his longstanding accusations that Mueller's team is biased. But anytime I even think about making changes, the FAKE NEWS MEDIA goes insane, always seeking to make us look as bad as possible!
