Trump slams 'disgraceful' leak of Mueller questions


US President Donald Trump on Tuesday criticised media reports that the country's Special Counsel Robert Mueller has compiled a list of more than 40 questions to ask the president as part of his probe into Russia's election meddling.

The New York Times late Monday published the almost four dozen questions to Trump's lawyers.

According to the NYT, the questions are primarily related to Trump's relations with former FBI Director James Comey and Attorney General Jeff Sessions, as well as to a 2016 meeting between Trump campaign officials and Russian lawyer Natalia Veselnitskaya. AP's Eric Tucker gives context to this latest development in the story about the Russian Federation investigation. Trump has also repeatedly dismissed accusations of collusion, calling Mueller's probe a "witch hunt".

President Donald Trump, however, took a dim view of this media leak, calling it "disgraceful" and declaring that the entire "investigation begun with illegally leaked classified information".

Russian Federation has repeatedly denied allegations that it meddled in the United States election, calling the accusations "absurd". No questions on Collusion.

The New York Times is reporting that the special counsel investigating Russian election meddling and obstruction of justice has given President Donald Trump's lawyers a list of nearly four dozen questions.

Referring to the possibility that Mueller could be investigating potential obstruction of justice by Trump, the president later tweeted, "It would seem very hard to obstruct justice for a crime that never happened!"

Trump has previously accused the former Federal Bureau of Investigation chief Comey of leaking classified information.

Mueller's investigators have read the questions to Trump's lawyers, according to the Times, which said it obtained the list from a person outside Trump's legal team.

According to the newspaper, numerous questions center on the obstruction issue, including Trump's reaction to Attorney General Jeff Sessions' recusal from the Russian Federation investigation, a decision Trump has angrily criticized.
