Trumps lashes out at Mueller “leaks”

World

President Trump has lashed out at a New York Times story outlining several questions Special Counsel Robert Mueller would reportedly ask President Trump during an interview.

The president called the leak of the questions “disgraceful” and incorrectly tweeted “no questions on collusion.”

The questions cover topics including former National Security Advisor Michael Flynn, the firing of FBI Director James Comey, Attorney General Jeff Sessions’ recusal from the Russia investigation and campaign coordination with Russia.

The Times reports the questions were provided by Mueller’s investigators to the president’s attorneys. The list was then provided to the times from someone “outside the president’s legal team.”

The special counsel’s office is not commenting or confirming the list.

Meanwhile, the White House is defending claims by Dr. Harold Bornstein, President Trump’s former physician, that his office was raided and medical records were seized after he gave an interview and discussed a medication Mr. Trump was once prescribed for hair growth.

“It would be standard procedure for the president, a newly elected president’s, medical records to be in possession of the White House medical unit, and that’s what was taking place, those records were being transferred over to the White House medical unit, as requested,” White House Press Secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said Tuesday.
