Mueller OK With Some Written Responses from Trump


WASHINGTON (AP) - Special counsel Robert Mueller is willing to accept written responses from President Donald Trump regarding any potential coordination between his campaign and the Kremlin's efforts to interfere in the 2016 presidential election.
That's according to a person familiar with a letter Mueller sent to Trump's legal team last Friday. The person says the Trump legal team has not responded to the offer.
The letter was the latest step in ongoing negotiations between Mueller and the president's lawyers over a potential interview. The person insisted on anonymity to discuss the confidential negotiations.
It was not immediately clear what those conditions mean for other questions Mueller is exploring. That includes whether the president obstructed justice in his attempts to undermine the Russia investigation.
The New York Times first reported Mueller's offer.
