Mueller will accept Trump's written responses as first step

President Trump's lawyer Rudy Giuliani

Trump fired his shot at the special counsel leading the Russian Federation probe in an interview with the Daily Caller, where he resumed claims that conflicts of interest prevent Mueller - who has already won a conviction of Trump's former campaign manager Paul Manafort - of having conflicts of interest.

Further, the attorneys for now are not committing to an in-person interview with Trump, barring some significant concession from Mueller.

After receiving the written responses, Mueller's investigators would decide on a next step, which could include an interview with Trump, the person said. He wrote then: 'Is Robert Mueller ever going to release his conflicts of interest with respect to President Trump, including the fact that we had a very nasty & contentious business relationship, I turned him down to head the Federal Bureau of Investigation (one day before appointment as S.C.) & Comey is his close friend'. Trump has said there was no collusion and has called the Mueller probe a "witch hunt". On Tuesday, the President called the Mueller investigation "illegal" in an interview with the Daily Caller.

There is some general sense among the Trump lawyers and Mueller's team that the process could reach its conclusion by the end of September, though this is not certain. Yet somehow, despite being filled with rage at Trump for firing his "best friend", Mueller nearly immediately turned around and applied for his best friend's vacated job?

The person familiar with the letter said Mueller's office indicated it would later assess what additional information it needs from the president, leaving open the possibility that Mueller's team might still seek answers on obstruction-related questions in an in-person interview.

Rudy Giuliani and Jay Sekulow, the president's personal attorneys, declined comment, as did a representative for the special counsel's office, according to The Washington Post.

Trump: "There were, I mean tremendous conflicts here, you know the conflicts, you've heard the conflicts".

The most important discrepancy relates to a meeting he had with Comey. That includes whether the president obstructed justice in his attempts to undermine the Russian Federation investigation.

"I always thought that was the day to make some decision", Giuliani said in an interview, according to Bloomberg on Tuesday.
