Skip to comments.Mueller Seeks White House Documents Related to Trumpís Actions as President
Posted on 09/20/2017 12:00:34 PM PDT by Alter Kaker
WASHINGTON Robert S. Mueller III, the special counsel, has asked the White House for documents about some of President Trumps most scrutinized actions since taking office, including the firing of his national security adviser and F.B.I. director, according to White House officials.
Mr. Mueller is also interested in an Oval Office meeting Mr. Trump had with Russian officials in which he said the dismissal of the F.B.I. director had relieved great pressure on him.
The document requests provide the most details to date about the breadth of Mr. Muellers investigation, and show that several aspects of his inquiry are focused squarely on Mr. Trumps behavior in the White House.
In recent weeks, Mr. Muellers office sent a document to the White House that detailed 13 different areas that investigators want more information about. Since then, administration lawyers have been scouring White House emails and asking officials whether they have other documents or notes that may pertain to Mr. Muellers requests.
One of the requests is about a meeting Mr. Trump had in May with Russian officials in the Oval Office the day after James B. Comey, the F.B. I director, was fired. That day, Mr. Trump met with the Russian foreign minister, Sergey V. Lavrov, and the Russian ambassador to the United States, Sergey I. Kislyak, along with other Russian officials. The New York Times reported that in the meeting Mr. Trump said that firing Mr. Comey relieved great pressure on him.

It is long past time for the president to tell this low rent shyster to shove his demands up his vile, septic, Obamahole.
He has nothing. He is fishing. Fire him.
SESSIONS YOU MOTHER ####ER!!!!!
Rudy would have said #### you i’m not recusing myself
This is OUT OF CONTROL!!!
Read earlier how they want info on Manafort for the last TEN YEARS..seriously..TEN YEARS..they have NOTHING they never did have anything this thing is such utter nonsense if it wasn’t so disgusting it would be laughable
Going well beyond his scope. Mueller is out of control. The Slimes cheer it on.
Mueller is not going to stop until he builds or creates a case to cripple or remove Trump. Mueller has unlimited budget, time and staff. The uniparty fully backs Mueller so Trump has to bite the bullet and face the consequences or face slow death IMO. Shut Mueller down.
So now the snake is “Robert S. Mueller III.”
The answer is a big “NO” for dingbat Mueller.
Gonna go along with you and add some of my own
To Hell with you, AG Jazzy Jeff, you useless piece of Republican shit.
Please pardon mah French!
Was Sessions a double agent? This is outrageous.
That will feed the press for another year.
I predict Meuller gets fired by Trump early next year.
Trump said he fired Comey because he was a showboater- I think Trump has been vindicated on that one.
Trump said he knew that firing Comey would not end Mueller’s investigation - I think he has been vindicated on that one too.
I wonder what would happen if Trump deleted the e-mails that Mueller is requesting?
If the Republicans didn’t support Mueller & hope for his success, they would be outspoken in criticizing Mueller & put an end to this sham, witch hunt, hoax of an investigation. Instead......crickets.
Show us the proof!
These requests are not shocking. In the context of the investigation, the events are the one’s that the press has previously accused Trump as being complicit in some sort of wrongdoing.
Do exactly like Hillary. Say you will have your people go through them, and you will turn over the ones you deem relevant. Use her exact words.
