Trump done with questions about Russian election meddling

GettyImages-613824754 Rudy Giuliani Says There Are 'Possible Traps' Among Mueller's Written Questions for Donald Trump

US President Donald Trump said on Friday (Nov 16) he had personally written - though not yet submitted - answers to the questions put to the White House by Robert Mueller's Russian Federation investigation, while once more assailing the probe as a "witch hunt".

"I was asked a series of questions - I've answered them very easily, very easily", said President Trump.

The Washington Post reported that Trump had met with his attorneys for more than four hours on Monday and 90 minutes on Wednesday to discuss the questions.

"I've answered them very easily".

Mr Trump and his lawyers had been in negotiations with Mr Mueller's team for months over how the President would be questioned as part of the investigation. "I'm sure they are tricked up, because, you know, they liked to catch people: 'Gee, was the weather sunny or was it rainy?"

Mr Trump also suggested the people who wrote the questions he agreed to answer "probably have bad intentions". "I'm working on them", he said, later adding later that he wrote the answers himself and that he "just finished them".

Mr Trump on Friday again criticised the probe as a "witch hunt" and said there was no collusion.

He said the answers related only to whether Trump colluded with Russian Federation during his presidential campaign.

"There should have never been any Mueller investigation" he said Friday.

"From what I hear, it's ending".

The president has met with lawyers almost every day this week in sessions to review his answers, including a four-hour session Wednesday that was frequently interrupted by other business. That move gave Whitaker, a Trump loyalist, oversight of the Mueller probe rather than Rod Rosenstein, the department's No. 2 official who previously had authority over it. "They have found no collusion and have gone absolutely nuts".

The tweets came a week after he forced the resignation of Attorney General Jeff Sessions, replacing him with Matthew Whitaker, who now has the power to sack Mr Mueller or end the investigation.

Mueller already has brought charges against a series of former Trump aides.

On Thursday the president let loose a tirade against Mueller on Twitter, alleging the investigation by the former FBI director was politically biased and had used threats against witnesses.
