The Associated Press reports:
President Donald Trump says he has answered written questions from special counsel Robert Mueller but hasn’t yet submitted them. Trump told reporters in the Oval Office on Friday that he answered the questions “very easily” this week but added that “you have to always be careful.”
The president did not say when he would turn over the answers to Mueller as part of the ongoing investigation into possible ties between Russia and the Trump campaign. Trump had huddled with lawyer at the White House this week but made clear: “my lawyers don’t write answers, I write answers.”
USA Today reports:
Trump did not detail the questions or his answers, but has repeatedly denied any kind of collusion with Russians who sought to influence the presidential election in his favor. Trump also denied seeking to obstruct Mueller’s investigation.
“You always have to be careful answering questions for people who have bad intentions,” Trump told reporters in the Oval Office, while discussing his recent criticism of Mueller’s office. “I haven’t submitted them,” he said. “I just finished them.”
