The absence of the Comey question seems to lead to the assumption that Trump's legal team negotiated, at least in part, what would be included in the questionnaire. It remains unclear if the investigation into President Trump will continue or if the questionnaire is the final step in the investigation.
Special Counsel Robert Mueller is reportedly on his last round of subpoenas and interrogatories and, this week, according to two major news networks, President Donald Trump will be submitting answers to a Mueller-authored questionnaire probing into his knowledge of "alleged Russian meddling" during the 2016 election.
ABC News reports that the White House has quietly complied with a request on the part of Mueller's team to answer a series of written questions. They added that the questionnaire arrived sometime earlier this month, and the president has been "huddled" with his legal team, including former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, to formulate answers.
"The questions, as ABC News has previously reported, center on alleged Russian meddling during the 2016 election cycle, which Mueller is tasked with investigating. The nearly year and a half long probe by the special counsel stems from allegations of Russia coordinating with members of the Trump presidential campaign," ABC News reports.
One thing Trump will not be answering questions about: firing FBI Director James Comey. When rumors began swirling that Mueller's team was seeking answers from the president, The New York Times reported that investigators were interested in hearing from Trump about why and how he fired Comey as part of a probe into whether the president had obstructed justice with his personnel-related decisions.
