Report: Mueller Team Told Trump Lawyers That He’s Not a Criminal Target
BEHIND THE CURTAIN
Special counsel Robert Mueller’s team has reportedly told President Donald Trump’s lawyers that the president is not a criminal target of the probe, but he remains under investigation. The Washington Post reports Mueller also told the president’s legal team that “he is preparing a report about the president’s actions while in office and potential obstruction of justice.” The special counsel is said to be still seeking to interview Trump as part of the investigation—namely, to figure out whether he sought to criminally obstruct the probe. Trump lawyer John Dowd, who vigorously opposed such a move, resigned last month, in part over disagreements about the president’s legal strategy.
