Mueller Seeks White House Documents Related to Trumpís Actions as President
The New York Times ^ | September 20, 2017 | Michael S. Schmidt

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 Trump’s 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. Mueller’s investigation, and show that several aspects of his inquiry are focused squarely on Mr. Trump’s behavior in the White House.

In recent weeks, Mr. Mueller’s 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. Mueller’s 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.

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.

They want to weaken the President by forcing him to say no, thereby making the issue one of "stone-walling."

That will feed the press for another 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.

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.
