A person familiar with the matter, who insisted on anonymity to discuss ongoing negotiations, told the Associated Press that the president's lawyers extrapolated the list of expected questions based off conversations with Mueller's team about the topics prosecutors wanted to cover in a potential sit down with Trump.
"This isn't some game".
Trump has tapped Emmett Flood, who advised Bill Clinton during his impeachment proceedings, to assist in the Russian Federation investigation after the lead White House attorney handling the probe announced plans to retire. Dowd left the president's legal team about two weeks after the meeting.
Trump on Tuesday condemned the release of the questions on Twitter and asserted that there were "no questions about collusion", even though some do appear on the list.
In a second tweet, Trump said: "It would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened".
Russian Federation has denied interfering in the 2016 USA presidential election, as U.S. intelligence agencies allege, and Trump has denied there was any collusion between his campaign and Moscow. A spokesman for Mueller declined to comment.
However, he said if Mueller had already made a decision to believe former FBI Director James Comey's account of events, "then we would just be leading him into the lion's den", Bloomberg reported. Caputo is a longtime ally of Stone's, a close associate of Trump who has come under scrutiny in the Russian investigation because of Stone's contacts with WikiLeaks during the campaign. Trump's lawyers met with prosecutors in early March. That is the implication of about a dozen of his questions, including the most surprising of all: Was Mr. Trump aware of any efforts by his campaign, and specifically by his former campaign chairman Paul Manafort, to seek Russia's help in winning the 2016 election?
Others, including members of Trump's legal team, said the Nixon case refers to document production, not physical testimony.
"I think everybody would agree, regardless of their position, that it would ultimately be resolved by the Supreme Court", said Ryan Goodman, law professor at New York University and editor-in-chief of the website Just Security. Manafort is now facing a litany of charges under Mueller's investigation. "And if you don't have a crime, he doesn't get to ask superior executive officials a bunch of questions", said McCarthy, likening a Mueller subpoena to a subordinate military officer making demands of a superior officer.
One question asks whether there were any efforts to reach out to Flynn "about seeking immunity or possible pardon" ahead of his guilty plea previous year.

He said that "a lot of concessions have already been made " - while stressing it was not the United States that had given ground. Asked to explain what he means by denuclearization, Trump replied: "It means they get rid of their nukes - very simple".
