Summary: President Donald Trump has been given a list of questions that Special Counsel Robert Mueller plans to ask him during their in-person interview. 

Special Counsel Robert Mueller is investigating Russia’s role in the 2016 presidential election, and he is seeking to answer whether or not Russia helped Donald Trump win the presidency. So far, Mueller has indicted five of Trump’s inner circle, and he will soon interview Trump himself.


The New York Times stated that Trump was sent a list of questions that Mueller will ask, and it has published these questions which include:

  1. What did you know about phone calls that Mr. Flynn made with the Russian ambassador, Sergey I. Kislyak, in late December 2016?
  2. What did you know about Sally Yates’s meetings about Mr. Flynn?
  3. How was the decision made to fire Mr. Flynn on Feb. 13, 2017?
  4. After the resignations, what efforts were made to reach out to Mr. Flynn about seeking immunity or possible pardon?
  5. What was your opinion of Mr. Comey during the transition?
  6. What was the purpose of your Jan. 27, 2017, dinner with Mr. Comey, and what was said?
  7. What was the purpose of your Feb. 14, 2017, meeting with Mr. Comey, and what was said?
  8. What did you know about the F.B.I.’s investigation into Mr. Flynn and Russia in the days leading up to Mr. Comey’s testimony on March 20, 2017?
  9. What was the purpose of your calls to Mr. Comey on March 30 and April 11, 2017?
  10. Regarding the decision to fire Mr. Comey: When was it made? Why? Who played a role?
  11. What was the purpose of your May 12, 2017, tweet?
  12. What did you think and do regarding the recusal of Mr. Sessions?
  13. When did you become aware of the Trump Tower meeting?
  14. What discussions did you have during the campaign regarding Russian sanctions?
  15. During the campaign, what did you know about Russian hacking, use of social media or other acts aimed at the campaign?

The questions seem to be steered towards a case of obstruction of justice, and the New York Times said that there are almost 50 questions that were sent to Trump.

“The open-ended queries appear to be an attempt to penetrate the president’s thinking, to get at the motivation behind some of his most combative Twitter posts and to examine his relationships with his family and his closest advisers. They deal chiefly with the president’s high-profile firings of the F.B.I. director and his first national security adviser, his treatment of Attorney General Jeff Sessions and a 2016 Trump Tower meeting between campaign officials and Russians offering dirt on Hillary Clinton,” the New York Times stated.

Mueller also plans to ask Trump about his business dealings.

Trump’s personal legal defense team consists of Rudy Giuliani, Jay Sekulow, Jane Raskin, and Marty Raskin. Criminal defense attorney John Dowd was previously Trump’s lead lawyer but he resigned in March over differences in how the case should be handled.
