Maybe I'm misreading, but it seems like trump is oh-so-happy with Rosenstein these days, even insinuating that Rosenstein has cleared him and is really investigating Clinton for her Russian shenanigans*. I haven't noticed any recent anti-Mueller temper tantrums lately. I try to avoid his tweets but I do see responses to them so I usually know when he's on a tirade.

I'd like to think Rosenstein cleverly worded things in such a way trump believes the pressure is off him. Shirley RR wouldn't actually tell him what Mueller has, or doesn't have...right?

*which sounds more like a Qanon CT than anything else.

If Mueller regularly briefs him on the status of the investigation, I suspect Rosenstein knows more about Trump than Trump does.

NEW TODAY: Trump's lawyers have received written questions from special counsel Mueller and are preparing their answers. The topics are about possible collusion and campaign ties to the Russians -- not obstruction.

I wonder if Mueller already knows the correct answers to the questions he's asking... :think:

I guarantee that he knows the answers to the questions that he will be asking.

Will Trump's lawyers take that into consideration when drafting the reponses?

Thread


I think it is significant that Mueller is agreeing to narrow the questions to Trump to focus on Russia conspiracy, rather than obstruction. It suggests Mueller thinks that's more significant and worthwhile at this stage. (I agree with @emptywheel.) 1/
Some interesting arguments in the thread why written answers might be better.

The obstruction has played out publicly so no need to ask about that.

It would just add more obstruction to Mueller’s work.

Donald Trump’s lawyers have maintained an unusual level of contact with attorneys representing clients caught up in the expanding Russia probe, communication that could taint evidence that special counsel Robert Mueller is collecting in his investigation of the president.

They’re not being shy about it either.

The president's attorneys talk openly about these “joint defense agreements” that they say were established to keep them connected with lawyers tied to the president’s aides, allies and associates. They took the lead in organizing weekly conference calls earlier this year to strategize with other counsel during an intense period of Mueller’s investigation. In total, Trump’s lawyers have publicly noted they have more than 30 so-called JDAs with Mueller probe targets. Under these agreements, Trump’s attorneys can seek details on everything from what questions and documents Mueller’s team is asking about to who’s on the verge of criminal indictment.
