Donald Trump-Robert Mueller showdown set up by presidential shakeup

Not looking too worried about a subpoena

Not looking too worried about a subpoena

The leaked questions, which Mueller discussed with Trump's lawyers, hint that the special counsel has uncovered untoward behavior on the part of close Trump confidants that is not publicly known. So a federal judge agreed to pause Daniels' lawsuit until this summer.

Trump's punch-for-the-gut strategy on the Russian Federation probe - he's been going after Mueller by name since mid-March, and his lawyers have also elevated their attacks in calling for the investigation to be shuttered and the investigators fired - does appear to be having an effect on the GOP base. CNN had previously reported that the questions Mueller is seeking to ask fall into four main categories and include queries about the firings of former FBI Director James Comey and former national security adviser Michael Flynn. Did he have corrupt intent necessary to prove he obstructed justice through a series of actions meant to impede an investigation into himself and his associates?

The president and his legal team stress that they have been.

Trump had used retainer fees starting in 2017 to reimburse Cohen for the $130,000 that Cohen paid Daniels to keep quiet, Giuliani asserted.

"How was the decision made to fire Mr. Flynn on February 13, 2017?" yet another question reads.

The meeting, set to take place in late May or early June, has been highly anticipated due to its historic significance and the diplomatic engagement that stands in contrast to the bellicose rhetoric exchanged between Kim and Trump a year ago - Trump is set to become the first sitting USA president to meet with a North Korean leader, and secretary of state Mike Pompeo visited North Korea and met with Kim in April. Yet when asked that same question by Congress at a public hearing previous year, he declined to provide that same reassurance.

The questions also involve key moments from the early months of the Trump administration, including his reaction to Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal from the Russian Federation investigation and Trump's firing of his national security adviser, Michael Flynn.

Trump's spin about the revelation of Robert Mueller's questions has been failing for days, so Trump has now issued an explicit threat via Twitter. The meeting is an indication of the increasingly warm ties between the two regimes since Kim met with Xi Jinping in March, and it shows that China will remain an important player leading up to potential Kim-Trump talks in the next few months.

Well, Congress can't get just any access it wants to documents in an ongoing investigation. What are they afraid of? Why such unequal "justice?" "Why such unequal 'justice?' At some point I will have no choice but to use the powers granted to the Presidency and get involved!"

"I think the investigation with him [Cohen] largely fell apart, with the loss of the campaign finance possible violation which never existed in the first place, but they sure thought it did", Giuliani said.
