Mueller Will Accept Written Answers From Trump About Russian Collusion

Sources close to the White House tell ABC News that Special Counsel Robert Mueller's office responded to President Donald Trump's legal team late last week regarding a potential interview with the president.

The offer was made in a letter Mueller's office sent Friday to Trump's legal team, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because the person was not authorized to publicly discuss the negotiations. Another source said Mueller's letter stated the written responses would pertain to questions regarding potential conspiring between Trump associates and Russian Federation.

Trump: "But I had a business dispute with Mueller before that".

According to a Tuesday in The New York Times, has shifted his position on whether he wants to answer questions under oath in a personal interview. A White House spokeswoman did not return a request for comment.

However, in a new interview with the conservative Daily Caller, the president let on he was also disturbed by something equally scandalous, the fact that Comey and Mueller were so chummy that they frequently hugged and kissed each other - and Trump has pictures to prove it.

"Republicans are trying to hide as much about Kavanaugh's record as they can because they know it would be damning", Meyers argued, showing Judiciary Committee Chairman Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) bang his gavel as 2010's Grassley, on split screen, demanded all documents relating to then-Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan and ample time to review them.
