Trump admin scared Mueller investigation closing in

President Trump has said that he has answered questions for Special Counsel Robert Mueller's "Russiagate" investigation, but has not submitted those answers yet. "But no, the questions were very routinely answered by me". "I've answered them very easily, very easily", Trump told reporters gathered in the oval office.

The White House has said it would not answer Mueller's questions on possible obstruction of justice.

Meanwhile, after being uncharacteristically subdued leading up to the November midterms, Trump took to Twitter Thursday, just hours after his Daily Caller interview, to lay into Mueller, accusing the special counsel of "screaming and shouting at people" and "horribly threatening them to come up with the answers they want".

The White House fears that Mueller will indict some of the president's allies and family members, Politico reported, citing unnamed officials working for or in contact with the White House. Trump had not yet submitted his answers, according to reports. "But it's all fake news".

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.

Mueller, who took over the investigation in May 2017, is investigating whether members of Trump's campaign conspired with Russian Federation in the 2016 election and whether Trump has unlawfully sought to obstruct the probe, which has cast a cloud over his presidency.

There should have never been an investigation, he argued, because there had been no wrongdoing by him or his campaign during the 2016 election.

While he repeatedly stated that his legal team has not been involved in helping him write his responses to Mueller, Trump expressed concern over investigators looking to catch him perjuring himself.

Mueller already has brought charges against a series of former Trump aides, including his former campaign chairman and a former USA national security adviser, as well as a number of Russian individuals and entities.
